Authentic Movement workshop and presentation

Authentic Movement is a practice of attending to inner-body experience, mostly associated with Dance Movement Therapy. It involves moving from within, as well as observing and speaking of this experience with specific attitudes and according to specific guidelines. 

I will share aspects of this practice, which inform my research methodology and guide you to give you a feel of how these methods may be useful to your own research and/or personal life. 


Who is this event for? Research students.No previous experience needed. Willingness to engage in movement required. Please wear comfortable clothing.


Barbara Erber will facilitate this event, she is a registered Dance Movement Psychotherapist and practitioner/teacher of Integrative Bodywork and Movement Therapy. She has been working with traumatised adults and children internationally in various settings since 2009. Barbara is currently conducting PhD research at the University of Edinburgh, studying how practitioners of Authentic Movement feel present and safe in their bodies within this practice and in everyday life. 


Tickets are free but limited, please secure your place on Eventbrite
