This is a course from a previous year. View the current courses

This course will examine clinical applications of expressive arts modalities such as art, music, poetry, and drama for the purpose of understanding their relationship to DMT and how they can be used in conjunction with DMT as a treatment intervention. We will also analyze the use of artistic components of dance, such as choreography and performance, to support a variety of mental and physical health goals. The course will be co-taught by several guest faculty with expertise in play, music, drama, poetry and dance; faculty members will assign their own readings.
