Dance Movement Therapy is a concise, practical introduction to a form of therapy, which has the body-mind relationship at its center. 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 and physical experience.
In the book, Bonnie Meekums maps the origins of Dance Movement Therapy (DMT) and its relationship to other more traditional forms of therapy. Outlining a new model for DMT, she describes the creative process, which develops in cycles throughout each session and over the course of therapy. Illustrated throughout with vivid case examples, the book defines the role of the therapist in working with clients to bring about change.
