Arts in palliative care federal grant opportunity!
The link below from UCLArts and Healing provides multiple resources to aid you in the application process with The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
Curious about the intersection of dance/movement therapy and palliative care?
Here are two ADTA Talks that speak to the subject:
DMT and Palliative Medicine with Susan Orkand:
DMT and Pediatric Medicine with Dr. Lori Baudino
New ADTA Talk released: Dr. Suzi Tortora on Embodied Parenting!
The ADTA Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/adtaorg is now “the” location to go to for videos on dance/movement therapy. The ADTA Talks are successfully reaching their target audience: mental health consumers, their families and the general public. In just over four months, the channel has earned 17,698 views. Christina Devereaux’s video – the first one released in connection with World Autism Awareness Day – has been viewed 4,201 times! Following the model of TED talks, these short talks are meant to introduce the idea of DMT to those unfamiliar with the field, pique their curiosity and inspire them to want to learn more about the profession. The topics were chosen based on research into what topics are of greatest interest to the general public, based on social media numbers and traditional media reports. The length of the talks were intentionally limited due to the well-established marketing research that reveals the attention spans and free time of most viewers is very limited. As a whole, the ADTA Talks are meant to be a basic, introductory volume revealing a fraction of our work and the videos will be further promoted as time goes on in coordination with awareness days and months.
You may not know that, after Google, YouTube is the second most used search engine. People now type in their topic of interest into the YouTube search box when they want to learn more about a topic. They don’t want to read about a topic, they want to watch a video about that topic. YOU can help ensure that the ADTA Channel videos are the first videos that pop up in their search results when they inquire about “dance therapy” and “dance/movement therapy.” How? Very simply. Just click the “thumbs up” icon under each video – indicating your support for that video. If you have two minutes, also consider typing a comment under each video, using the term “dance/movement therapy” somewhere in your comment. These little actions on your part will help us get to the top of the search engine results very quickly – where we rightfully should be – and will help reduce the impact of videos that incorrectly label themselves as dance therapy.
Share with colleagues, friends, students via email, social media and at inservices. These talks were meant to be conversation starters - to appeal to consumers and allied professionals who know nothing/little about DMT. Open the door with these videos then walk through that door with your own services.

I'm delighted to let you know about a newly published book I co-edited, titled EMBODIED LIVES: Reflections on the Influence of Suprapto Suryodarmo and Amerta Movement.
In this intimate collection 30 movement practitioners from around the world describe the impact of the non-stylized Amerta Movement practice, showing how it inspired remarkable insights and changes.
Their stories will be of enormous value to dance movement therapists and to all who are interested in cultivating an embodied approach to life and work.
The authors explore themes and ideas as diverse as:
Movement and… psychotherapy ~ babies ~ Buddhism ~ film ~ the law ~ archeology ~ joy ~ music ~ autism ~ performance ~ presence ~ hoping ~ etc.
The book is available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Embodied-Lives-Reflections-Influence-Suryodarmo/dp/1909470325
or from http://www.contactquarterly.com/contact-editions/book/embodied-lives
and will also be available at the conference.
“Suprapto’s work with movement is radically inventive and his dancing a
revelation.” Anna Halprin
