Adelphi University
Families In Motion: The Dancing Dialogue - Using the Power of Movement to Support Communication and Attachment with Infants, Young Children and Families

March 7, 2013
Time: 9 AM – 4 PM

Adelphi University's Alumni House is located at 154 Cambridge Avenue, Garden City, NY 11530-0701

Presenter: Suzi Tortora, Ed.D, BC-DMT

Based on the intricate relationship between the brain and body, the instructor will introduce deeper ways to understanding the role that multisensory learning plays in all levels of a young child’s development, using the Ways of Seeing program. This relationship-based program emphasizes the primary significance of movement and multisensory experience in strengthening the attachment relationship through nonverbal and experientially-based engagement. This perspective will be applied across a continuum of infant and early childhood mental health practice, with typical parent-infant relationships and special populations.

Waldorf Astoria Hotel, New York City

Topic: Two Day Clinical Workshop #4: Psychotherapy Technique and Process Part 1

Presenters: Larry Sandberg, M.D., Beatrice Beebe, Ph.D., Suzi Tortora Ed.D, BC-DMT

This workshop will introduce psychoanalytic clinicians to a novel, ongoing multi-modal treatment that was catalyzed by an impasse during an intensive psychotherapy of a severely disturbed woman with gaze aversion. The insufficient role of an interpretive focus led the analyst (Larry Sandberg) to engage a colleague with expertise in infant research and video feedback (Beatrice Beebe) who has used the latter intervention bimonthly to advance the treatment. In addition, weekly dance movement psychotherapy (Suzi Tortora) has provided an additional – largely nonverbal and embodied – strategy to facilitate deepening psychic growth, integration and an amnesis. The treatment team will present their clinical work.

When: Wednesday, January 16, 2013, 4:30 – 6:30 PM Part 1
Thursday, January 17, 2013, 4:30 – 6:30 PM Part 2

Participants are expected to attend both days
