Dance/Movement Therapy

Dance/Movement Therapy (DMT) at Jumbish is aimed at promoting the emotional, social, cognitive, and physical integration of participants to enhance overall health and well-being. This therapeutic intervention emphasizes the connection between body and mind. We see DMT as a tool for empowerment and building agency in women and girls who are at risk of complex trauma.

We believe that DMT empowers people to assert themselves, build confidence and strengthen decision making. Body-based therapeutic work is increasingly being recognised as a crucial part of healing trauma. DMT has been used to empower survivors of trafficking and sexual abuse, refugees who have faced loss and violence, minorities facing discrimination and marginalised communities. The use of DMT as a tool for social change and promotion of well being has been documented extensively.
