As dance/movement therapists we are bound by our code of ethics, which serves as our guide to upholding professional values and standards of conduct.  Multicultural competence and promotion of social justice are included in the code.  Additionally, dance/movement therapists are expected to examine how their own cultural background influences their place within the therapeutic relationship.  In this course, students will be invited to examine and expand their own belief systems and world views in service of providing ethical and competent care for clients.  The vehicle for this process will be conducted through story; the stories we have been told and the stories we tell ourselves, which all live in our bodies, our movement, and in our relationships.  The code of ethics also charges dance/movement therapists with cultivating awareness of oppression, power, and privilege.  In this course students will explore how power, privilege, oppression, and collective liberation intersect with our work as dance/movement therapists.  Students will explore how key features of oppression show up on societal/cultural, institutional, interpersonal, and individual levels.  By observing and making contact with the ways in which we have been affected by dynamics of privilege and oppression we can begin to repattern habitual ways of being that may interfere with cultivating connection with others.  In this course, systematic oppression will be looked at through the lens of trauma providing students the opportunity to apply trauma-informed and healing centered approaches to their therapeutic work.
