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 psychology and dance/movement therapy courses in order to access the official title of dance therapist. As of today, no such program exists in Canada and in 2012, no complete dance/movement therapy training program was available. This is why the NCDT was created with, as part of its mission, the creation of a graduate program in dance/movement therapy.
