The French Society of Dance Therapy was established in 1984 as French Society of Psychotherapy. It changed in 2001 for its actual name. We have been basic full member of EADMT since 2000. The Association’s bodies are the General Assembly and the Board of directors constituted by the president, the treasurer and several administrators. We have four types of membership: « sympathisant », associate, professional associate and member of honour.
The SFDT and the new French trade union for arts therapists are working hand in hand towards national professional recognition since the end of 2020. Our Association aims to gather and structure all the different therapeutic approaches existing which work with body, dance and movement, so that a common language is created hence a better understanding of our different identities.
