An Introduction to Medical Dance/Movement Therapy: Health Care in Motion

Synopsis

"Presenting dance/movement therapy (DMT) as a viable and valuable psychosocial support service for those with a medical illness, Sharon W. Goodill shows how working creatively with the mind/body connection can encourage and enhance the healing process. This book presents many real-life examples of medical DMT, working with people of different ages with different medical conditions. It provides a firm foundation for exploration and practice, including recommendations for professional preparation, research and program development. Interviews with dance/movement therapists bring fresh perspectives to the field and these, along with the case examples, point to possible future applications. It is recommended reading for students and professionals, complementary therapists, and all those with an interest in the healing potential of working innovatively with the mind and body."
