Event description
Dance/Movement Therapy & Internal Family Systems Work: Healing the Fractures of Trauma through Self Recovery.

About this Event

Join the California Chapter of American Dance Therapy Association on February 23, 2020 for an exciting and in-depth workshop - Dance / Movement Therapy and Internal Family Systems Work: Healing the Fractures of Trauma through Self Recovery.

Workshop will begin with:

  • a review of the current understanding of the physiological aspects of trauma;
  • how this relates to Internal Family Systems work; and
  • how these principles can then be applied to working with clients with trauma through Dance/Movement Therapy.

Participants will explore and move through creative applications of Internal Family Systems concepts such as:

  • naming and locating activated parts of Self that can be fractured off in response to trauma;
  • “un-blending” from self-destructive parts;
  • releasing parts that may manifest as physical symptoms;
  • accessing the healthy adult Self through the "8 C's of Self"; and
  • creating integration of parts and Self through expressive means.

The thread of physiological symptoms will be woven throughout the discussion and movement portions of the workshop, as well as the efficacy of dance/movement therapy to address these issues. We will also reflect on the effects of the current sociopolitical climate on clients with trauma and how this impacts our work together. One of the benefits of working with the Internal Family Systems model is the emphasis upon accessing Self. This can be a beneficial resource for both the client and the therapist when facing such difficult issues. We will explore this expanded possibility of treatment as a shared experience that leads to a Self-led healing process of recovery.

Three Learning objectives are:

  1. Participants will be able to summarize the physiological aspects of trauma and how dance/movement therapy can be an effective means of addressing them.
  2. Participants will be able to implement facilitation of “un-blending” from destructive parts
  3. Participants will be able to describe applications and benefits of the concept of accessing Self in Internal Family Systems with clients with trauma.

Featured Presenter: Marybeth Weinstock, PhD, BC-DMT

Dr. Weinstock received her PhD in Clinical Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco in 2010, a Master’s Degree in Dance/Movement Therapy from Hunter College in New York in 1985, and an undergraduate degree in Dance and Psychology from Goucher College in Baltimore in 1975. She has worked in psychiatric hospitals, schools, mental health facilities, and in private practice with a broad span of patients for over 40 years, and specializes in Eating Disorders, Trauma, Body Image, and issues of age. Dr. Weinstock's dissertation was entitled Women Dancers in Midlife: Coping with the Transition, which advanced her scholarship in and treatment of body image issues, and which inspired a series of ongoing workshops.

Dr. Weinstock’s theoretical orientation includes Internal Family Systems (IFS), psychodynamic, Jungian, feminist, cognitive behavioral, and existential approaches. She was trained by Dr. Richard Schwartz, the creator of IFS, and has incorporated it into her work with her clients, who have benefited greatly from this approach.

Dr. Weinstock has served on the CA Chapter of the ADTA as both President and Communications Chair and currently serves on the national Board as the Western Member-at-Large. She also serves as the national representative to ACIH. She previously served on the Ethics and Research committees.

Dr. Weinstock's mentor Anna Halprin certified her to teach Movement Ritual. She is a certified facilitator in The Body Positive and uses its principles to guide clients through reclaiming their beauty. She is also deeply influenced by her studies with Alwin Nikolais, Murray Louis, and Hanya Holm as a young dancer in NYC, and by her love of meditation and yoga.

Dr. Weinstock currently has a private practice in Monterey, CA and works part time at The Lotus Collaborative in Santa Cruz, CA with clients with eating disorders. She also provides supervision for DMT’s. She began teaching dance 45 years ago, has been a guest lecturer at various colleges, and has given workshops and in-services on DMT since the mid-80’s.
