Coming Events

The DTAA runs regular continuing professional development events to enable our members to keep up to date with the latest developments in DMT and related areas of professional knowledge. We offer activities that will enable all members to reach the necessary hours for professional development per year. Most of our events are also open to other interested professionals. Members who have suggestions for PD topics they would like the DTAA to address, or who would like to offer a PD on a topic of their expertise, should contact PD Committee Convenor Jane Guthrie on or Robyn Price on

Research Forum

Wednesday 25 November 2020

6.00pm-7.00pm AEDT /8.00pm-9.00pm NZ, by Zoom

“Making Sense of Touch in Dance Movement Therapy: A Trainee’s Perspective”

Following on from the discussions at the AGM, this month the Research Forum discussion paper will be on “Making Sense of Touch in Dance Movement Therapy: A Trainee’s Perspective”. 


1. What is your personal experience with touch? Positive? Negative?
2. As a practitioner, do you use touch? How? Why? Why Not?
3. How do you process touch with your clients?
4. Would you use touch in groups?  How is that versus touch in individual dance movement therapy sessions?

Please join the Research Committee for discussion on this very interesting article and then a lively chat where we will identify topics and maybe papers to be discussed in 2021, as well as the dates and times to meet.

This event is free to financial members of the DTAA and offers participants one Category A CPD point.
