“Body Image & Movement Analysis:  Tools for Intervention”  Presented by:   Paula M. (Vincenza) Dante, LCSW

The Body is the seat of sensation and emotion. Ms. Dante will share some basic concepts from the field of Dance Movement Therapy that can help Social Workers with their assessment and intervention of students. She will discuss the role of Body Image in relation to self-esteem and explore how to build positive body messaging into school culture. Participants will learn about critical movement elements through discussion and observation. Experiential exercises will provide an opportunity to practice attunement skills to build rapid rapport, safety, body empathy and reduce isolation for students. By focusing on the body and its expressive movement, school social workers can improve their clinical effectiveness by using the movement analysis tools learned in this dynamic workshop.
