  • Creating Spaces for Discoveries in Movement Observation and Beyond

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In this commentary, dance/movement therapy (DMT) educators, practitioners, and students discuss the current issues, lived experiences, and ongoing debates surrounding movement observation frameworks and their impact on DMT education and client populations. The commentary claims that expanded perspectives are needed on how to begin the process of observing the body through different identities, experientials, and theoretical perspectives. The discussion is framed by insights gained from the larger DMT community, and the DMT program at Lesley University. This emerging conversation explores new frameworks, applications to clients, and dialogues between movement observation systems with voices from recent graduates and higher education professionals. The goal of this paper is an ongoing collaborative effort that reflects on culture, community, movement preferences, and life experiences.

  • The Reality of Vulnerable Research: Honoring Humanness Amid a Pandemic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This article describes the journey of a health equity research study that changed course due to challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and the precarity of the population of focus. Although the mixed methods intervention and dance/movement therapy protocol did not transpire as intended, we gained much relevant insight from the 12-month process. We here highlight the original six-week protocol, recruitment efforts and important clinical observations during the recruitment phase, as well as a detailed synopsis in form of a case study of the one participant who completed the study. We also take a critical look at the limitations of clinical human research and raise the question when to pivot from or abort a project, keeping in mind what ultimately matters, the respect, value, and care of an individual. We close with implications for engaging in research with vulnerable communities.

  • Mortality, Mortuaries, and Movement - Implications of Dance/Movement
           Therapy and Death: A Literature Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Dance/movement therapy (DMT) is a somatic-based psychotherapy approach that can supplement existing therapy techniques or stand on its own as effective psychological treatment. As a growing field, DMT continues to expand its application to different populations. This literature review analyzed the implications of DMT application for individuals who are dying. While the application of DMT with diverse populations has been studied, the literature regarding the application of DMT with dying individuals is slim. Medical, spiritual, and emotional treatment during death have received considerable attention in academic literature, however, the application of many body-based psychological treatment interventions has not been studied as thoroughly. Literature concerning the cultural attitudes towards death in Western and non-Western cultures, mental illness and death, and the literature that has been published thus far concerning DMT and death were analyzed as a framework to better understand the potential application of DMT with dying individuals. While research still needs to be conducted in order to best apply DMT in the treatment of dying individuals, the research points to strong potential for the creation of further evidence-based care.

  • The 2022 International Panel: Adapting and Transforming: The Immigrant
           Experience of Dance/Movement Therapists

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The 27th ADTA International Panel explored the journeys of dance/movement therapists who have experienced both the realities and challenges of the immigrant experience: learning a new language, leaving a familiar culture, uprooting families, leaving friends, and becoming a member of a new community. Nine panelists offered a verbal description of their unique stories which were accompanied by videos demonstrating their personal dance/movement expressions. By listening and observing, we had the valuable opportunity to see the resilience of adaptation and acclimation that is inherent in dance/movement therapists from around the world. The following are abridged and edited versions of the panel presentations which have been modified to provide an overview of the panel. The complete transcript, with references and links to accompanying videos, can be found by accessing the 2022 ADTA Conference Proceedings via the American Dance Therapy Association and via the following YouTube link: https://youtu.be/fAN_81CMTk8'si=UVfq8kTXr_4YEUjP.

  • COVID-19 and Neuroinflammation: A Vital Role for Dance/Movement Therapy in
           Long-Term Health Outcomes

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract There is mounting evidence that COVID-19 infection is related to neuroinflammation, which has been associated with the development of neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Diseases. Holistic, mind–body tools and techniques commonly used in dance/movement therapy directly support neural mechanisms that may help prevent or slow this process. This article reviews recent biological research on the development and progress of COVID-19 and outlines an emerging connection between infection and the onset or progression of neurodegenerative illness, while indicating a role for dance/movement therapy in pandemic response and recovery.

  • Fun, Fitness, and Relaxation: Using Participatory Research to Explore
           Dance/Movement Therapy with Women Navigating the Criminal Justice System
           in Australia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper communicates findings from a doctoral research project which used dance/movement therapy (DMT) to engage two women navigating the criminal justice system in Australia. A feminist-informed participatory research design was applied to learn about each woman’s experience and to explore the possible health promoting benefits of community-based DMT. Women serving time on community correctional orders were invited to attend drop-in DMT workshops which were held in a drug and alcohol recovery centre. Participants were invited to offer feedback which was analyzed using reflexive and interpretative methods of ethnographic data generation. Three themes emerged through the data which were understood to reflect simple notions of fun, fitness, and relaxation in DMT. Although limited to a small number of participants, this study undertook a close reading of each woman’s feedback and considered themes in light of trauma theory. Drawing from the women’s responses, the study articulates the beginnings of an ‘exercisePLUS’ perspective: a theoretical rationale which validates the role of exercise in DMT and discusses its potential therapeutic significance. Neurobiological trauma frameworks are used to articulate the findings, however, the research seeks to challenge assumptions within the medical model, such as the ‘expert’ positioning of the therapist. In doing so, this research aims to contribute toward the further development of community-based perspectives in DMT practice, and, offers a theoretical rationale for the use of DMT within a forensic context.

  • Effectiveness of Dance/Movement Therapy Intervention for Children with
           

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Children with intellectual disability (ID) often have deficits in gross motor skills and static and dynamic balance abilities, poor lower muscle strength, and an increased risk of serious falls. They also face difficulty in continuing physical activity programs due to cognitive impairment and easy loss of motivation. However, dance/movement therapy (DMT) has been found to help children with ID perform static and dynamic movements. This study aimed to assess the effectiveness of DMT group sessions for children with ID as part of an early childhood special education preschool program. The outcome measures involved employing a hand-held dynamometer to assess knee extensor muscles, the one-leg stand test for static balance, and the timed “up and go” test for dynamic balance, and administering the Child Behavior Checklist and Caregiver-Teacher Report Form for children’s adaptive functions and behavioral problems, as reported by parents or relatives and teachers respectively. Twenty-one children with ID aged 36 to 72 months participated in the study. Ten 60-min DMT group sessions were conducted as manualized intervention, once a week. The measurements were done before and after the 10 DMT group session, and then compared. The results showed statistically significant changes in both knee extensor muscles, the standing time for both legs in the one-leg stand test, attention problems and affective problems in the Checklist, and total score, internalizing problems (including emotionally reactive and somatic complaints), externalizing problems (including attention problems and aggressive behavior), affective problems, anxiety problems, and attention deficit/hyperactivity problems in the Report Form. This study found that the DMT group sessions as part of an early childhood special education preschool program for children with ID aged 36 to 72 months helped improve their knee extensor muscles and static balance while reducing maladaptive behaviors, enabling them to enjoy the sessions for the full study period.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper represents the first research study conducted to date on the use of Dance/Movement Therapy (DMT) to treat children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in Mainland China. This study gives detailed clinical examples of how to use DMT in the treatment of this population, and demonstrates the linguistic, nonverbal, and relational changes that took place after 7 months of individual sessions. Data from interviews with caregivers yielded four themes regarding the impact of DMT: (1) Improvement of ability to use language and to communicate, (2) Expansion of nonverbal communication and understanding of bodily language, (3) Emergence of new behaviors: game playing, imagination, and bodily movement, and (4) Appearance of positive emotional expression. In addition, the VB-MAPP assessment was used to evaluate the children’s language levels before and after DMT. Findings indicate that it is necessary, appropriate, and effective to use DMT in the treatment of children with ASD, and that this evidence-based treatment should receive further development in China.

  • Latinx Perspectives in Dance/Movement Therapy: Development of the RED DMT
           LATINX Network

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Dance/movement therapy (DMT) in Latin America has a growing number of practitioners, strong training programs, and a steady trajectory of contributions to the field in both research and practice. With the objective of finding spaces of professional solidarity, discussion and support, a group of Latinx practitioners from 13 countries gathered during the pandemic, forming RED DMT LATINX (Latinx DMT Network). This commentary article exposes the process and aims of the network and delineates some of the challenges and opportunities for DMT in Latin America, and for Latinx dance/movement therapists worldwide. The article analyzes issues related to professional visibility, highlights the lack of access to resources in Spanish and Portuguese, and calls for more spaces for peer and organizational support. It presents current evidence regarding efforts of legitimizing DMT within regulatory bodies and higher education, and recent digital initiatives in Latinx dissemination of current practice. Future areas of research include: the cultural recognition of Latin American dance forms and their applications within DMT, and the further inclusion of Latinx discourses in DMT platforms across the world. The article contributes key themes to the wider field of DMT, which will enrich future discussions, collaborations and research on multicultural exchanges and diversity.

  • Dance/Movement Therapy for Individuals with Eating Disorders: A
           Phenomenological Approach

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Individuals with eating disorders (EDs) face many challenges in their recovery. EDs are complex and can be difficult to treat. Mortality rates for individuals with EDs are among the highest of all psychological disorders. As outcomes of traditional treatment approaches vary and relapse rates are high, it is important to explore complementary treatment approaches. Emerging research has shown that fostering mind-body connection can benefit recovery, yet there is a dearth of research on such interventions. Dance/movement therapy (DMT) is designed to foster mind-body connection and is the focus of this study. More specifically, the study explores the experiences of individuals who self-identified as female, engaged in DMT, and the perceived impact of DMT on their recovery. Eleven interviews were conducted and analyzed using a phenomenological approach to identify themes. Three major themes emerged (i.e., ED Treatment, Experience of DMT, and Impact of DMT) along with several subthemes. Participants reported that while engaging in DMT was often challenging, there were various benefits to their participation. Challenges included overcoming a negative body image and being present in their body through DMT. Some participants also highlighted the challenge of not knowing what to expect from their participation in DMT. Participants reported benefits such as improvements in mind-body connection, emotional awareness, and self-esteem. Limitations of the study, directions for future research, and clinical implications are discussed.

  • Moments of Meeting in DMT: Characteristics and Implications from the
           Subjective Experience of Therapists

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Moments of meeting (MoM) are characterized by instances of special intersubjective connection between the therapist and patient which causes a change in the implicit relational knowing (IRK) of both individuals. MoM have been widely described for non-creative arts therapies, but there is little information about their characteristics in dance/movement therapy (DMT). This study seeks to explore and characterize the MoM in DMT from the perception of professional therapists. Nine dance/movement therapists (dmts) were consulted using a multimodal approach that travels between writing and movement (Panhofer, 2011) and data were examined using qualitative content analysis. The results show that the characteristics of MoM can be grouped into three categories: (1) relationship (shared experience, experience of fusion, security and kinesthetic empathy) (2) emotion (emotional intensity and genuine affection) and (3) movement (physical closeness, eye contact, emergency, irruption of the present and release of the flow). These results are contrasted with what was originally proposed by the Boston Group (Lyons-Ruth et al in Infant Ment Health J 19(3):282–289, https://doi.org/10.1002/(sici)1097-0355(199823)19:3<282::aid-imhj3>3.0.co;2-o, 1998) and recently by Duarte et al. (Psychother Res 31:1–14, https://doi.org/10.1080/10503307.2021.1948138, 2021) and Lauffenburger (Am J Dance Ther 42(1):16–32, https://doi.org/10.1007/s10465-020-09321-y, 2020), finding similarities and new elements exclusive to DMT. This work contributes to a deeper understanding and conceptualization of MoM in the specific field of DMT and its clinical practice.
