What is professional liability insurance for Dance Therapists?
In many professions, it’s prudent to acquire liability insurance; it’s not just for medical professionals anymore. In these litigious times, dance therapists are encouraged to carry coverage as well. Professional liability for dance therapists is an insurance policy written specifically to protect your career and assets by providing unlimited defense coverage in the case of a lawsuit.
Why take out your own dance therapist insurance policy (even if you’re a W2)?
Dance therapists are some of the most attentive and understanding professionals in the industry. You’ve worked hard through school to develop your love for movement into a career where breakthroughs occur alongside close bonds. The nature of your work may falsely lead you to believe that a client wouldn’t sue you, their therapist, but it happens and for a variety of reasons.
Let’s look at an example of a potential claim scenario.
A client with an eating disorder may come to you for therapy because they feel a lack of connection to their body. Through your work with the client, you may focus on the therapeutic use of movement to empower your client and to develop a connection between their mind, body, and spirit. The therapy may be working to break down negative behaviors like food restriction but if a lapse in progress occurs, the client could potentially sue you for their pain and suffering.
Whether their claim has merit or not, insurance for dance therapists will provide unlimited legal defense and pay and any amount the court awards to your client up to the limits of your policy.
