Overview

"Dance Movement Therapy is a concise, practical introduction to a form of therapy which has the body-mind relationship at its core. Movement, with both its physical and metaphorical potential, provides a unique medium through which clients can find expression, reach new interpretations and ultimately achieve a greater integration of their emotional, cognitive and physical experience." "Bonnie Meekums maps the origins of dance movement therapy (or DMT) and demonstrates its relationship to other more traditional forms of therapy. Outlining her model for DMT, she describes the creative psychotherapeutic process, which develops throughout each session and over the course of therapy. The active ingredient in this process is the 'movement metaphor.'" Illustrated throughout with case examples, this practical guide will help new trainees become orientated within the field of DMT. It also has much to offer practicing psychotherapists who wish to develop more holistic and creative ways of meeting their clients' needs.
