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 email@example.com or Robyn Price on firstname.lastname@example.org.

In this workshop you will learn about two applications of DMT with children who are at risk of trauma: DMT with groups of caregivers and young children (roughly aged 2-4); and individual DTM with primary school aged children (around 6 years old). Included in your workshop fee are two free case study articles to read in advance, and a movement observation tool which you will need to have with you for movement practice. You will be taught using a combination of video, discussion, and both observation and movement practice so that you can begin applying these tools in your own practice.
