On-Site Trainings/Certification Programs

Each year Martha Eddy & the CKE faculty conduct trainings for professionals. The goal is to creatively guide professionals to help others to fully enjoy the satisfactions of life, and to experience quicker access to balance even in times of stress. These professional training programs focus on body awareness and use movement as a teaching tool. They can include how to effectively read and respond to body language as well as principles about the positive effects on the brain of learning through movement.

Professional Certifications:

Become a Somatic Movement Therapist.

Somatic Movement Therapy involves working with clients to improve physical function and holistic expression in movement and life. The key goals of Martha Eddy's Dynamic Embodiment Movement Therapy Training (DE-SMTT) are embedded in Eddy's "cycle of intervention" which is a therapeutic model of effecting change in health and lifestyle through observation, support and exploration. Martha Eddy and other renowned faculty teach DE-SMTT through Moving On Center in California, in Massachusetts, and in NYC. Eddy has carefully combined principles of Body-Mind Centering© (BMC) and Laban Movement Analysis (LMA) as well as her own to create a practical approach to individualized therapeutic practice and performance enhancement. This program teaches how to use Eddy's systems of Dynamics of Touch©, Dynamic Movement, Dynamic Health© and Dynamic Embodiment©. Discussion also centers on larger global issues that limit peace and community building, and how to foster creative solutions to engage in community wellness. The DE-SMTT is an approved training program of the International Somatic Movement Education and Therapy Association.

DE-SMTT students can also gain academic credits in Somatic Psychology or Interdisciplinary graduate studies if matriculated with Santa Barbara Graduate Institute and the State University of New York/Empire State College.
