This module will cover the common core principles that structure the field of MindBody Therapy. Drawn from various somatic disciplines such as body psychotherapy, dance therapy, sensory awareness, bodywork, and movement education, this module will look at the common theories and beliefs that unite these various domains, as a way to construct an overarching view of MindBody Therapy.

This module will address the qualitative characteristics that are inherent in a practitioner of Mindbody Therapy and provide practices to cultivate these qualities. Key perspectives and core values from humanistic-transpersonal psychology will be distilled in order to support students in their application of working in a holistic and client-centered approach.
with Christine Caldwell
MindBody Therapy disciplines share many core practices that can be traced back to the core principles. This module will examine five important commonalities of practice, examining why they are valued, how they are used, and their hoped for results. In addition, we will practice at least one technique for each of the five common practices.
