The Expressive Brain in Dance/Movement Therapy
with Karen Bradley,
Certified Movement Analyst
The benefits of dance/movement therapy (DMT) as a psychotherapeutic intervention are well-established. The American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA), founded in 1966, is a professional organization dedicated to the profession of dance/movement therapy. Dance/movement therapy uses movement to "further the emotional, cognitive, physical and social integration of the individual." Through movement, DMT can help individuals with a wide range of psychological disorders achieve greater self-expression.
"February 22 – February 28 marks National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. The ADTA is proud to once again partner with the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) to help raise awareness about the severity of eating disorders and the importance of early intervention and prevention measures."
