Below find some information about a group I will begin facilitating at the beginning of December. I will be writing more about the dance therapy and play process and how it supports the attachment and neural development of young children during this critical period of 12-24 months of life. Until then...please feel free to contact me for group registration information!
New Group Starting - Friday December 2, 2011
Parent/Child (1-2 year olds) Dance Therapy Play Group
In cultures across the globe parents/caregivers universally engage in some form of movement, play and song to support the budding relationship between themselves and their children.
Psychiatrist Allan N. Schore talks about how caregiver-child attachment supports the neurological development of infant and young children's limbic brain and future "...expansion, of the child's coping capacity".
This group will be a safe and supportive environment for caregivers and young children. We will use movement, song and play to facilitate the deepening of attachment between caregiver and child. In addition to supporting the development of a support network between the caregivers in the group.
The group will meet once a week from 11-12:15 pm at the Institute for the Arts in Psychotherapy in Chelsea, NYC. The cost is $60/session.
