  • Active Factors in Dance/Movement Therapy: Health Effects of
           Non-Goal-Orientation in Movement
    • Authors: Solveig Wiedenhofer; S. Hofinger; K. Wagner; S. C. Koch
      Pages: 113 - 125
      Abstract: Abstract Dance/movement therapy (DMT) is an academically young discipline with a need to identify effective movement interventions and active factors of dance related to health improvements. Non-goal-orientation is a defining aspect of improvisational dance, one of the most used dance forms in DMT sessions. Based on the phenomenological approach on the psychology of movement of Straus (Nervenarzt 3(11):141–178, 1930), this pilot-study tested whether non-goal-oriented versus goal-oriented movement has positive effects on perceived stress, well-being, general self-efficacy, and body self-efficacy, in undergraduate students. Forty-six undergraduate students were assigned to either a non-goal-oriented experimental condition or a goal-oriented control condition. In support of the hypothesis, perceived stress and well-being improved significantly in the non-goal-oriented condition compared to the goal-oriented group. Body self-efficacy improved in both, the experimental and the control group. Implications of the findings for the discipline of DMT are discussed.

  • Maintaining Stability in the Face of Adversity: Self-Care Practices of
           Human Trafficking Survivor-Trainers in India
    • Authors: Ashley Fargnoli
      Abstract: Abstract Within the human rights organization, Kolkata Sanved, survivors of human trafficking used dance/movement therapy (DMT) based techniques to empower other survivors, fulfilling the dual role of survivor and provider. This transcendental phenomenological study explored the lived experiences of self-care for human trafficking survivors in Kolkata, India, working with other survivors. Semi-structured interviews were the primary mode of data collection. Artistic methods were included to engage participants in movement to further reflect on their experiences of self-care. To analyze the interviews, Moustakas’ (Phenomenological research methods, SAGE Publications, Thousand Oaks, 1994) modification of the van Kaam method of analysis of phenomenological data was implemented. Findings revealed common self-care practices among the participants that contributed to their stability. Self-care practices minimized participants’ re-traumatization when working with other survivors. This study further suggested the use of DMT and body-based practices for self-care within community-based organizations employing peer-provider models.

  • Demographic and Well-Being Predictors of Regular and Long-term Practice of
           Argentine Tango in a Multicultural Sample of Practitioners
    • Authors: Rita Santana; Maria João Gouveia; Ana Carvalheira
      Abstract: Abstract The practice of Argentine tango has experienced exponential growth all over the world, and several studies have revealed its positive outcomes on physical health. The present study aims to analyze demographic, well-being, and other psychological variables associated with the regular and long-term practice of Argentine tango. Participants included 524 men and women from 52 countries (Mean = 42.4; SD = 11.52; Range = 18–77). A multiple regression analysis was carried out designating the frequency of attendance at milongas as the dependent variable. Among women (n = 334), age, relationship situation, flourishing, and flow, emerged as significant predictors. Older and non-committed women, with a low level of flourishing, and a high level of flow were more likely to report a high frequency of tango practice. Among men (n = 190), relationship situation, flourishing, flow, and positive affects emerged as significant predictors. Non-committed men, with a low level of flourishing, a high level of flow, and a high level of positive affects were more likely to report a high frequency of tango practice. Another multiple regression analysis was conducted using the length of participants’ experience dancing tango as the dependent variable. Older and committed women with a high level of flow were more likely to report a pattern of long-term tango practice. Older men with a high level of flow were also more likely to be long-term practitioners of tango. These results raise questions about the potential effects of tango dancing on participants’ well-being.

  • De-escalation with Dance/Movement Therapy: A Program Evaluation
    • Authors: Jacelyn Biondo
      Abstract: Abstract Psychiatric inpatient facilities may treat patients with a history of or current aggressive tendencies. Restraint and seclusion (R/S) techniques have been a controversial choice for patient and staff safety. Literature on aggression and restraints in psychiatric facilities suggested a need for further training on de-escalation and violence prevention to support safer environments for patients and staff. A 5-hour de-escalation and violence prevention training program based on dance/movement therapy (DMT) techniques was developed and taught to Drexel University students in the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Master’s program (N = 73). The training program, De-escalation with DMT, focused on teaching observational skill building, empathy building, and self-efficacy in order to support violence prevention and de-escalation. This article looks at the effectiveness of the training program in each of the three skill areas, as well as, participants’ views on the overall effectiveness of the program as it relates to de-escalation, violence prevention, and the use of R/S. Findings suggest an increase in observational skills, empathy levels, and self-efficacy, and positive views regarding the overall training program as reported by participants. Results from this program evaluation suggest that De-escalation with DMT could be useful in increasing skills that would support safe and effective de-escalations.

  • Continuing Bonds in the Body: Body Memory and Experiencing the Loss of a
           Caregiver During Adolescence
    • Authors: Sara Anne Simpkins; Katherine Myers-Coffman
      Abstract: Abstract Continuing bonds with deceased persons is discussed in grief literature, especially in children who are grieving the death of a parent or caregiver. The body is often described as important to the experience of grief, yet few studies have investigated the bodily experience of grief or continuing bonds in children, outside the context of pathology. The objective of this phenomenological research study was to describe the experience of body memory in those who lost a parent or caregiver in childhood or adolescence. Three individuals participated in a movement elicitation followed by a semi-structured interview. Textual data were analyzed using Moustakas’ (1994) phenomenology, revealing nine universal themes. Five themes pertained to the nature of body memory: a sense of reliving the experience; body memory being foreign but familiar; the experience of age in body memory; embodying leads to understanding; and the immediacy and frequency of body memory. Two themes described specific body sensations: a sense of falling and oscillation between opposing states. The remaining two themes connected the body to emotions: the emotional charge of body memory moves toward resilience and the relationship between tension and emotion. Implications for future study and integration of thematic findings in grief work in dance/movement therapy are provided.

  • The Art of Reaching Out
    • Authors: Rebekka Dieterich-Hartwell
      Abstract: Abstract This paper examines the intersubjective processes encountered in a 10-week creative arts studio class. The objective was to explore how transference and countertransference, along with metaphor and symbolism, fostered meaning, which in turn could contribute to an understanding of the therapeutic process. While several themes emerged through the data analysis, the main theme extracted was the phenomenon of reaching out. Two vignettes were highlighted to indicate a connection between this theme and transference, countertransference, metaphor, and symbolism. An arts based method using improvisational movement illuminates and adds to the understanding of what it means to reach out. The paper closes with applications and suggestions for the field of dance/movement therapy based on the findings and personal clinical experiences.

  • The Psycho-neurology of Embodiment with Examples from Authentic Movement
           and Laban Movement Analysis
    • Authors: Helen Payne
      Abstract: Abstract There is widespread agreement that thought is embodied cognition and that our earliest learning is implicit, through the body, and nonverbal expression. This article advances the proposition that the integration of thought and emotion is felt through the body. Embodiment and embodied simulation (ES) (Gallese in Neuropsychoanalysis 13(2):196–200, 2011) represent controversial topics in both the philosophy of mind (Clark in Being there: Putting brain, body, and world together again, MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, 1998) and cognitive neuroscience (Gallagher in Cognitive Syst Res 34–35:35–43, 2015a; Gallagher in Conscious Cogn 36:452–465, 2015b; Gallese & Sinigaglia in J Conscious Stud 18(7–8):117–143, 2011a; Gallese in Philos Trans R Soc B 369(1644):20130177, 2014). As a result of advances in these areas of research, there is a need to re-conceptualize our understanding of the mechanisms and processes involved in dance movement psychotherapy. Could ES be applied to the psychology of movement' This article attempts to apply this theory of embodiment to the practice of Authentic Movement (AM) and Laban Movement Analysis. The theory of ES is proposed as one possible explanation of how the witness in AM comes to know her inner experience in the presence of a mover, which may lead to an “offering” to that mover from the witness’ conscious body (Adler in Offering from the conscious body: The discipline of Authentic Movement, Inner Traditions, Rochester, VT, 2002). Furthermore, there is an examination of how ES connects to the task of movement observation and how meaning is arrived at from the various movement patterns observed.

    • Authors: Christina Devereaux
      Abstract: Abstract During the 51st American Dance Therapy Association conference keynote presentation, The Biochemistry of Love, Dr. C. Sue Carter, Executive Director of the Kinsey Institute, discussed the role of oxytocin and vasopressin in social behavior and attachment in humans. Post-conference, Dr. Carter spoke with this author in an audio-recorded interview, summarizing some of her talk and emphasizing how oxytocin and vasopressin interact in ways that help to understand the biological “dance of life.” This unique interdisciplinary collaboration aids the profession of dance/movement therapy in understanding the dance of connection through the biology of love and safety—an essential ingredient for healing and repair. This article is an edited transcription of the original audio.

    • Authors: Kalila B. Homann
      Abstract: Abstract During the 51st annual American Dance Therapy Association conference, this author participated in a cross-disciplinary panel, “Polyvagal-informed therapy for trauma, attachment and autism,” with Dr. C. Sue Carter, Executive Director of the Kinsey Institute and Rudy Professor of Biology at Indiana University and Dr. Stephen W. Porges, Distinguished University Scientist at the Kinsey Institute at Indiana University Bloomington and Research Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This following article reprints the author’s remarks on this panel, and explores how mutual dialogue between dance/movement therapy (DMT) and affective neuroscience can enrich both fields. A more nuanced understanding of DMT’s impact and potential is afforded by mutual, ongoing dialogue with affective neuroscience colleagues that illuminate the work. This contribution includes a brief experiential and case vignette that illustrates how polyvagal regulation and oxytocin activation are supported and stimulated through DMT.

  • Connecting the Practice of Dance/Movement Therapy: What Differentiates
           Us'
    • Authors: Sharon Chaiklin
      Abstract: Abstract Historical appraisals of dance/movement therapy (DMT) generally present a view that the profession’s development occurred roughly simultaneously in quite different directions on the East coast and the West coast of the United States. The author, whose formative training was with Marian Chace in Washington, DC, and elsewhere, examines this origin myth from a new perspective. Having been invited in 2016 to join with a number of California-based dance/movement therapists on a panel on Jungian theoretical approaches to DMT (widely considered a quintessentially West coast paradigm), the author recalled an event that foreshadowed this panel presentation at the annual conference of the American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA). Her resulting narrative looks back at a West coast visit that she made as ADTA president in 1972, and her encounter then with sister dance/movement therapists there. She charts several levels of interaction between the two “coastal” approaches, along with significant and illuminating correspondences organizationally and theoretically, which she indicates continue to the present day. Sharing her reflections on the profession at these two distinctive points—in 1972 and in 2016—is meant both to preserve this history and to highlight commonalities across DMT, ideally enabling integration of pivotal aspects of the profession’s core knowledge.

  • The Therapeutic Movement Relationship in Dance/Movement Therapy: A
           Phenomenological Study
    • Authors: Jessica Young
      Abstract: Abstract The therapeutic movement relationship (TMR) is central to the work of dance/movement therapists; yet, a definition of this core concept remains absent. This phenomenological study explored the meaning and essence of the TMR, as experienced by eight co-researchers who are board certified dance/movement therapists, in order to arrive at a definition. Data analysis of semi-structured interviews resulted in five textural themes that describe the essence of the TMR: (a) fundamental, foundational, and integral, (b) powerful, dimensional, and full, (c) shared presence and connection through movement, (d) creative collaboration, and (e) evidence of the TMR. In addition, three structural themes emerged that describe how the TMR is experienced: (a) presence, (b) space and time, and (c) creativity. These themes informed the creation of a definition of the TMR, which can support the teaching, learning, practice, supervision, and research of this critical component of dance/movement therapy.
