Special Needs and DMT

From the beginning of my clinical practice in my training as a Therapist in DM I have worked with children in a Special Education context. In working with different diagnoses and pathologies (Autism, ADHD, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy and Mitochondrial Diseases), I have found in the movement a very powerful tool of communication and dialogue. From the therapeutic link, we create a secure space where a unique and special channel of expression and communication is established.

It is through nonverbal language; The movement and the sound mainly that we communicate to express what we feel since we were born. We all think and feel in different but very similar ways, through concepts inherent to DMT such as kinesthetic empathy, affective intonation and Embodiment, derived from neuroscience and early developmental psychology (Fischman, 2005), we seek To establish a dialogue in movement in which a secure base is formed for the development of each individual, we try to understand, to listen and to accompany our needs.

Through empathy we seek to understand what the other person lives or feels, not only their affections, but their state of being: the history of their desires, feelings and thoughts, as well as other forces and experiences that are expressed in their behavior .
