Consultation on the statutory regulation of dance movement therapists

14/07/2009 - 16/10/2009

This consultation has now closed. You can download documents outlining the responses we received to the consultation and the conclusions we have drawn as a result below.

 

We are consulting on the potential statutory regulation of dance movement therapists.

 

In March 2004, the HPC Council considered an application from the Association of Dance Movement Therapists (now the Association of Dance Movement Psychotherapists) for statutory regulation. The Council recommended that dance movement therapists should be regulated.

 

In February 2007, the Government published a White Paper on the future of regulation, 'Trust, Assurance and Safety - The Regulation of Health Professionals in the 21st Century'. The White Paper identified the priorities for future regulation.

 

Dance movement therapists were not included within the list of priorities for regulation. However, as we made the recommendation that dance movement therapists should be regulated, we believe that it is appropriate for us to consult on issues relevant to their regulation. We are also separately consulting on the regulation of psychotherapists and counsellors. As such, we think that it is appropriate for us to consult on regulating dance movement therapists as well.
