    In this seminar, the basic principles of dance/movement therapy, a clinical modality used to help individuals who suffer from psychological or emotional issues such as addiction, grief and loss, trauma, eating disorders, depression, and neurological disorders, will be presented. Dance/movement therapy can be used with people of all ages and stages of life. The goal of dance/movement therapy is to establish a mindful connection to the body, allowing a person to gain insight into themselves through understanding the meaning of movement and felt experience. Rhythmic group activities in dance/movement therapy develop connection, communication, and community with others. Participants will have the opportunity to enhance wellbeing by experiencing dance and movement for stress reduction. This seminar will be facilitated by Carol Kaminsky MA, BC-DMT, NCC, a board-certified dance/movement therapist and a faculty member in the University of Miami dance program. She has taught mindful movement and meditation for stress reduction (MBSR) for over 20 years.
