The summit will begin on Day 1 with a focus on pioneers and pathfinders across the world in the development of the field in their countries, and will move chronologically, geographically and geopolitically. Day 2 will focus on clinical, educational and community applications of dance/movement and other embodied uses of the arts around the world. Day 3 will focus on trauma and resilience and will engage presenters and participants in key conversations about applications of Dance Therapy and Movement Therapy and other forms of arts-based embodied practices in the prevention and treatment of trauma and PTSD as well as provide strategies towards building resilience and preventing burnout and compassion fatigue.
