CURRENT SITUATION

According to the international standards set in place by associations delivering dance/movement therapy accreditations, it is necessary to have completed a graduate university training including clinical psychology and dance/movement therapy (DMT) courses in order to access a dance/movement therapist accreditation. As of today, no such program exists in Canada. This is why the NCDT was created with, as part of its mission, the creation of a graduate program in dance/movement therapy.
