Our Accreditation & Certification Committee has published a new definition of DMT for Canada!
Our accreditation committee has been working hard canvassing the community and moving efforts forward on developing a Canadian certification program. Visit their committee page for further developments on strategic planning and how to volunteer your help.
Here is a PDF of the newly published definition of DMT in Canada:
This model describes a broad field inclusive of Dance Movement Therapy, Adapted Dance, and rehabilitation/prehabilitation in Canada, and allows us to move forward expansively. This definition will be regularly reviewed and amended to ensure it reflects the reality and scope of DMT practice in Canada.
Please reach out directly to the Accreditation Committee via the feedback form on their page with your thoughts: https://www.dmtac.org/accreditation-page
A huge thank you to all those currently volunteering on the committee who shared their time and expertise to craft this definition!
