Clinical Supervisor Register

The Clinical Supervisor register is reserved for Professional DMTs only who have sufficient experience and qualifications to supervise and want to be included in the register of potential DMT supervisors. Only a Professional member can become a Clinical Supervisor. To do so, they must demonstrate that they have worked clinically 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.  If the Clinical Supervisor chooses to deactivate their Professional membership, they will automatically relinquish their Clinical Supervisor status and will need to reapply upon re-activation of Professional membership.

DTAA Clinical Supervisor

GradDip in DMT (WI), Doctor of Social Development, candidate (UPD), Masters in Human Movement Science – Leisure Studies (UPD), BA Communication (FEU), Certificate in Global Health Trauma and Recovery (Harvard), and Supervision training in research, psychosocial health and community organising (UPD)

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.

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.

DTAA Clinical Supervisor

I use a reflective approach using embodied and verbal inquiry into the therapists’ experience. With embodied enquiry, I utilize the elements of movement, breath, sound and witnessing. Together we try to understand the Therapists internal experience coupled with external relational interactions to facilitate the therapists’ practice. My supervision approach is embedded in a framework that is multifaceted. The primary influences are Poly Vagal informed Dance Movement Therapy (DMT), Humanistic and Existential theories. Polyvagal-informed DMT is a humanitarian approach based on the universality of our physiology.

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.

DTAA Clinical Supervisor

Supervision Advanced Certificate Program (PACFA accredited), Master’s degree in Dance Movement Psychotherapy (Goldsmiths, University of London), Diploma in Movement Arts and Mixed Media (Attakkalari, India)

I offer clinical supervision for dance movement (psycho) therapists, creative arts (psycho)therapists, psychotherapists, counsellors, allied health professionals and other helping professionals. I describe supervision as a shared space for the supervisor and supervisee to reflect on clinical practice and work collaboratively for the best interests of clients. The space provides safe, non-judgemental and ethical support and is an invitation to explore clinical material creatively, bodily and psychodynamically so that understanding of client work will be holistic and integral. The space also explores self-care of the supervisee to ensure competence as a safe practitioner. My approach to supervision is influenced by psychodynamic psychotherapy, trauma-informed practice and attachment. I also supervise DMT trainees and new graduates.

DTAA Clinical Supervisor

Inviting the spirit of collaboration, co-creation, curiosity & compassion into our therapeutic dance, I encourage transparency, reflexivity, & adjustments in attitudes and perspectives. I can offer psychotherapeutic & somatic approaches, but I prefer more exploratory, relational and post-structuralist, or narrative approaches. I like to bring the stories, histories, patterns, orientations, contexts, and hopes into awareness, so that we engage with the forces that shape and pull us.

Working online, in person, with words, movement or touch, I offer support, accompaniment, and scrutiny as we follow the entangled threads, together allowing challenges and experiences to unravel, and the solutions and resolutions to ‘ravel.’ I’m curious about the skills and wisdoms of the people who seek our support, and the social and power constructs we work within. My intention is to weave ourselves into communities, into relationship and into alignment.

BA (Music History & Italian), Grad Dip Movt & Dance, Grad Dip Dance Therapy, Master of Gestalt Therapy, Grad Cert Group Therapy, Grad Dip Relational Supervision. PACFA Reg. No. 26671. Robyn has studied Body Mind Centering for more than 10 years and completed training in trauma therapy and recovery from addictions. Her experience as a DMT and Gestalt psychotherapist encompasses mental health, addictions recovery, unresolved trauma, dementia/aged care, adults with disabilities, children with disabilities and learning difficulties, relational issues, eating disorders and loss and grief.

Robyn’s approach to supervision is based on the relational matrix model of supervision (Chidiac, Denham-Vaughan & Osborne) in which curiosity can be brought to each of the inter-connected relationships present in the therapeutic situation, of client, supervisee and supervisor. There are nine lenses through which we can illuminate a question or case in supervision and many ways to do so: talking, sensing, moving, visualising, and drawing, e.g. For Robyn, supervision is a collaborative, supportive, creative and non-judgemental space, where supervisees are encouraged to expand their curiosity, awareness and self-reflection skills, their ability to remain present, acknowledge success, ask questions, challenge, and seek support.

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.

The supervisory material I offer embraces the principles of the embodied, creative process with an emphasis on post structural influences. This supervision approach utilizes open, exploratory, non-lineal pathways to attune to what is unique within a therapeutic endeavour, where the therapist can clarify the known and become confident to explore what is not yet known about it. Post structural influences include embracing ambiguity and uncertainty about an event or entity, and sourcing multiple interpretations of, and possibilities for, it. These influences seek to expose what might be taken for granted within the relationship, to be able to consider it differently. Central to this material is the therapist’s intellectualized, kinetic, and kinaesthetic modes of responding to the therapeutic assemblage, where attention is directed toward their aesthetic, sense-based experiences of, and with, it. This supervision material is highly personalized and contextualized, to meet the needs of each therapist and client/s as they are situated.

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

DTAA Clinical Supervisor

Psychotherapeutic approach based on somatic psychotherapy approaches such as Hakomi and Sensorimotor psychotherapy, with an understanding of the neuroscience underpinning how people experience the world. The principles are based in mindfulness, openness, being curious and supporting the client to study their responses,beliefs, sensations and responses in their body in order to follow the body’s way to healthier ways of being. Supervision supports therapists to be able to follow and study what is happening in their clients body to help guide them through their body to a healthy outcome. This will include dance and movement processes that support this unfolding into health.
