Clinical Supervisor Register

The Clinical Supervisor register is reserved for Professional DMTs who are ready to supervise and want to be included in the register of potential DMT supervisors. Only a Professional member can upgrade to Clinical membership. To do so, they must demonstrate that they have worked clinically or academically for five years post graduation from a DMT training program and, during that time, have received an additional 50 hours of group or individual supervision above the 70 hours needed for Professional membership. The DTAA prefers that the Professional member undertakes or has undertaken a training in Supervision Practice. Clinical Supervisor members hold the right to become a Supervisor of dance movement therapists, use the nominal DTAA (Clin DMT) in their signature block, and will form the DTAA Clinical Supervisor Register.

Dance Movement Exploration (DME) is the framework created and used by Alberto. It is anchored within DMT, Physical Activity, and Psychosocial Theories. DME is the search for the inner self leading to a better understanding of one’s emotions and behaviours and an approach in Discovering Meanings in Existence (through de-stressing movement experiences). Integrated strategies are person-centered approach, social development approach (capabilities and inclusion), and psychosocial intervention tool to the members of the community (elderly, women, youth, indigenous, PWD, and marginalised) to link and address issues (trauma cause by shocks). DME is a tool used in recognizing the individual capabilities for healing and empowerment, and as a tool for prevention/intervention in furthering psychosocial well-being towards social change.

DTAA Clinical Supervisor

MA in DMT; BC-DMT # 384 LPC # 343 (Licensed Professional Counsellor) State of Colorado; Certificate in Intervision Supervision Training; Additional training in Counselling (including Focusing); Authentic Movement and Laban/Barteneiff Movement Systems

I use a variety of options in supervision. Case reporting is one. I use Physical Storytelling, Authentic Movement as well as a form called Intervision. In group supervision I encourage supervisees to really think through there bodies while moving and I ground this through the lenses of Laban, Bartenieff and Kestenberg movement systems. Improvisation strongly informs my supervision approach supported by a framework that synthesizes humanistic, developmental, and metaphoric (aesthetic) understanding.

In general, I take reflective approach where we emphasize the on supervisee’s own reflections on personal experience and clinical practices. I invite the supervisee to set an intention for what they’d like to focus on for supervision. Collaborative and creative models are incorporated with embodied & verbal investigation and exploration of unconscious processes and therapeutic relationships. This aligns with my own clinical framework, where I integrate person-centered and psychodynamic frameworks in supervision. I am committed to provide safe, confidential, and supportive supervision where self-care, ethical and practical issues can be openly discussed. I support the students in training and practitioners to return to their SELF and resource themselves in their practice.

My work incorporates developmental, neurobiological and nuerosequential underpinnings alongside psychodynamic and person centred psychotherapy. In supervision, I ensure I understand the working model of the supervise and what they want to gain from the session, explore the clinical work from a relational, psychodynamic and movement analysis perspective (LMA and KMP), we use movement and verbal reflection and I ensure to create a safe and open space for exploration and growth with the supervisee.

My supervision approach is three faceted: 1. I observe/listen to my supervisee carefully to ensure that I understand how he/she/they work. 2. With them I explore their movement work and it’s associated psychological meaning and effects through the lense of LBMS and somatics. 3. Together we try to understand relational and intersubjective enactments using a psychodynamic Self Psychological framework.

Clinical practice: I employ Humanistic and Person-centred and developmental approaches. I integrated DMT principles of mind-body-feeling connection, Laban movement analysis and Chase techniques into my practices. I base on Yalom’s group therapy in dance therapy group work. I focus in the creativity of movement and dance. I integrate family therapy and neuroscience concepts in my practices. I apply Psychanalytic theory and attachment theory to conceptualise the case.
Supervision: The aim is to help the supervisees to reflect and gain inspiration from the clinical practices. I employ verbal as well as movement-based reflective approach facilitating my supervisee to reflect upon the DMT practices.

Framework is influenced by my experience in DMT, Somatics, Pilates, Laban Movement Analysis, Body Mind Centring & Somatic Breath Techniques as well as 35 years experience as an Educator. Approach as a Supervisor:
•Mentoring and collaborative discussion that develops opportunities for practice, reflection, experimentation and movement delivery
•All techniques will focus on supervisees’ DMT practice in the workplace with supervisees’ clients
•I will provide constructive feedback in a supportive environment
•Facilitate group Supervision, where there is opportunity for all participants to contribute and share
•Supervision sessions will adhere to timeframes, enabling supervisees ample time to present information about their clinical work as well as time for reflection
•The supervision will include learning skills required to practice as a DMT and address personal issues of transference and countertransference
