Dance movement therapy is the use of creative movement and dance in a therapeutic alliance. It uses the relationship between motion and emotion as a vehicle through which an individual can engage in personal integration towards a clearer definition of self. During the last 10 years, dance movement therapy, along with the other arts therapies, has consolidated as a separate and valid therapy in health, education and the voluntary and social services. "Dance Movement Therapy" offers dance movement therapists and students, as well as allied professionals, an insight into state-of-the-art DMT practice in the UK. The first book to document UK practice, it aims to provide a clear and balanced picture of representative work in the field, from its use with the mentally ill, learning-disabled and emotionally disturbed, through to high-functioning adults. Including both descriptive accounts and those based on research and academic scholarship, they highlight the different methods used within different settings. No one particular model is stressed. This book should be of interest to professionals in training and in practice in dance movement therapy, mental health and education.
