Global Therapist is a growing non-profit organization that serves as a vital connection between those seeking to learn and those in need. Our core belief in the transformative force of movement drives us to offer Dance Movement Therapy to children in need in countries such as Costa Rica, Ghana, and Bali.
How We Do It
Dance Movement Therapy
Dance Movement Therapy is an innovative therapeutic approach that integrates movement and creative expression to promote healing and well-being. This non-verbal and embodied form of therapy provides a unique avenue for self-expression, self-discovery, and personal growth. Dance Movement Therapy has been shown to improve emotional regulation, enhance self-esteem, reduce stress, and foster overall mental and physical well-being, making it a powerful tool for healing.

How To Join
Becoming a global therapist is about graduate students learning hands-on techniques and communication skills by offering therapeutic support for children with an openness to cross-cultural practices, bravery to encounter new experiences, and awareness of populations in diverse placements while building a legacy for mental healthcare across the world.
Global Therapists was founded by Dr. Lori Baudino, a practicing clinician with over two decades of experience in mental health care. Dr. Baudino's passion for helping others led her to embark on a journey of practicum training abroad, where she worked to create healing opportunities for people in need of mental health care.
In order to gain the qualifications and placements she needed to make a meaningful impact, Dr. Baudino forged her own path, hiring her own supervisor and creating her own internship while fulfilling all the necessary requirements. Through this process, she realized the immense potential for global collaboration in mental health care and founded Global Therapists to connect universities and treatment centers across the globe and provide graduate students with the international placement, supervision, cultural training, and integrative therapeutic experiences they need to become qualified mental health professionals.
