Art Therapeutic Approach in Psychology
On September 09, 2023, the 4th year students of the EP “Psychology” within the discipline “Art-Therapeutic Approach”, worked with a practical psychologist-consultant Vera Kulenova, a graduate of KAFU. She demonstrated the method of dance and movement therapy. This is a branch of psychotherapy in which dance and movement are used as a process that promotes the emotional and physical socialization of the individual.
The goal of the method is to become aware of one’s own body, create a positive image of it, develop communication skills, and gain group experience.
During the group work the following techniques were used:
1. Expanding the variability of one’s own movements in group and pair work.
2. Analysis and diagnosis in dance movement therapy – Laban analysis (LMA).
3. Practical study of the most unused area.
4. Teaching non-judgmental feedback to the person watching the dancer’s movement, etc.
