Caros Colegas,
é com imensa alegria que fazemos esta pré-divulgação do encontro de formação que a Praia – APDMT organiza este ano, de novo com Susan Scarth, como supervisora, formadora e moderadora.

O tema deste ano é:

Insights e contributos especificos da Dança Movimento Terapia, para as práticas clínica, educativa e social.

Em breve, divulgaremos mais informação sobre a formação e condições de inscrição.

Para já, fica a informação das datas e uma nota da própria Susan Scarth.

“(…) Current research and clinical practice in education, health care and social welfare contexts will be considered.

Dance Movement Therapy (DMT) is a psychotherapeutic model that engages the client in a creative relationship with the therapist, where attention to the body, in all its facets, is a key focus.
DMT reveals itself to be an excellent model of therapy where attachment in the first years of life has been disrupted. The act of being present for the client, attentive and supportive of who they reveal themselves to be, is the role of Winnicott’s concept of the ‘good enough’ mother.
Furthermore, recent research in the field of neuroscience and neuropsychology, supports the healing effect of the creative relationship that emerges between client and therapist.”


Sobre Formação: FAQ


Respostas a uma pergunta muito frequente:

Digam-me, por favor, quem pode ser dança terapeuta? Qualquer pessoa pode? De que formação precisa e onde a adquire?

Os terapeutas que fazem parte da Praia – APDMT fizeram as suas formações em institutos estrangeiros.

Existem várias formações a nivel europeu com diferenças importantes entre elas.

A nossa associação filiou-se na European Association Dance Movement Therapy e aproxima-se dos seus princípios e critérios.

Os critérios mínimos para se ser Dança Movimento Terapeuta são:
1. completar uma formação especifica e pós-graduada de nivel de mestrado (ou seja, de pelo menos 2 anos) em (num dos sistemas da) Dança e Movimento Terapia,
2. apresentar por escrito um estudo de caso ou relatório da fase de estagio prático, que integra a formação, com supervisão validada.
3. iniciar e desenvolver um processo de terapia pessoal com um dos métodos da dança movimento Terapia.

Para se ser Dança Movimento Terapeuta é importante uma prática regular em contexto clinico, social ou educativo com supervisão de colegas (pares ou seniores) com formação e experiência complementares.

eadmt conference 2018

“It takes courage to stand where we stand simply as we stand”
Bani Shorter Jungian Analyst ‘Border People’ 1982

As Dance Movement Therapists (DMTs) we are all border-people and we work in liminal spaces, on edges, on borders and with people of all ages and cultures in transition from illness to wellness. The numbers of people crossing inner and outer national borders at this time are quite unprecedented, giving many opportunities for us to rise to these new challenges in skilled, embodied and psychotherapeutically informed ways. This stimulating conference in the heart of Athens, will address both the inner and outer border crossings that we do in ourselves and with others in the course of our therapeutic work on a variety of themes. It will also offer an opportunity to share and celebrate some of the most innovative and important DMT work going on throughout Europe and globally, at a time of profound change and also opportunity.

It is significant that this year’s conference is so close to the migration routes used by refugees and asylum seekers fleeing torture, war and ethnic cleansing. It is also of great significance that PHILOXENIA (Greek spelling here?) in traditional Greek culture is about taking action by ‘being a friend to the stranger’. Might this idea also be true of the DMT as friend to the stranger, working with and through trauma, up-rooting, identity-loss and trans-cultural issues in DMT? What are the underlying issues of theory and practice that inform work in this area? What are the outcomes or results? To what extent is this work extending, developing and also challenging us as DMTs? How might further work in this area grow and develop? These questions inform this theme which is designed to open up dialogue and give a platform in our community about issues of major societal concern.

As DMTs we are all border people meaning that we work in liminal spaces, on edges, at borders and with people of all ages and cultures in transition from illness to wellness. This theme takes a seminal work by Jungian Analyst B. Shorter (1982) as its inspiration, which highlighted the importance of a border as not only a place of transition, but also a place where you are investigated by way of your passport or your identity, and that existing permanently on borders is not healthy, as there exists a ‘no man’s land’ in that place. A place that is neither here nor there, that exists paradoxically both in and out of time. We as DMTs work in this territory, in the space between the ‘known’ and the ‘not yet known’, we work in the present moment with the person in the context of the ‘therapeutic relationship’ (Chaiklin & Schmais, 1986). This theme also includes transitions in life, coming to terms with a different sense of who we are becoming, whether caused by illness, by disability, by ageing and/or a mental health problem. In addition, there are also major societal concerns such as oncology, neuro-degeneration (including dementia syndrome and parkinson’s), psychiatric and substance abuse issues and medically unexplained symptoms.


Technology today in video and digital form makes it feasible to cross the border from working in real to virtual/cyberspace. Immediately a question arises about how technology contradicts or not one of the pillars of DMT, which is embodiment: the teaching of, bringing awareness to, assessing body language? Is it a contradiction to use technology in our profession or where does it function and work well and in what particular areas? Importantly, what effect has it produced? We create and use webinars and learning for training, clinical practice and in giving or receiving supervision. The skills knowledge and experience we apply in our work, puts us in a unique position in relation to “psyche” and the ‘therapeutic relationship’ (Chaiklin & Schmais, 1986) whether in real or virtual form. How does the use of cyberspace help us navigate border crossings? What are the ethical issues which arise, and how do we work with them in these liminal and in-between spaces?

Dia Mundial da Saúde Mental


No âmbito do protocolo assinado entre a Faculdade de Motricidade Humana da Universidade de Lisboa e a Praia – APDMT, estivemos com os alunos do Mestrado em Reabilitação Psicomotora numa aula sobre Dança Movimento Terapia na disciplina de Avaliação e Intervenção em Saúde Mental.

A aula foi teórica-prática com uma reflexão assente na vivência do Movimento por parte destes alunos.

Foi também uma oportunidade para partilhar ideias e questões decorrentes da nossa prática clínica enquanto Dança Movimento Terapeuta.

A sessão foi desenvolvida pela Professora Luisa Roubaud – da Faculdade – e pela Dança Movimento Terapeuta Ana Coimbra Oliveira  – da Associação.
