DANCE/MOVEMENT THERAPY & REICHIAN MIND-BODY THERAPY AS COMPLEMENTARY TREATMENT FORMS
A 2 hour monthly process group
Johanna Climenko BC-DMT, LCSW-R, LCAT & Corinna Brown BC-DMT, LCAT

Dance/Movement Therapy and Reichian Character Analytic, mind/body therapy are both treatment forms premised in the unity of psyche, soma and spirit. Each works toward integration, through the continuity of physical, emotional, creative and spiritual energy. With their common conceptual base, these forms of therapy approach change from opposite ends of the treatment spectrum. In dance/movement therapy, (DMT) we work with the aesthetic elements of dance/movement in a creative process of unfoldment. In Reichian therapy, (RT) there is a more linear analytic approach to working with character as it manifests in the body, and psychological attitudes. In combination, they create a potent dual-modality that works with change efficiently and in great depth. In this experiential group, we will actively explore how these two forms complement and augment one another in our own process.
This group is intended for dance/movement therapy professionals and students, and those in other mental health fields, as well as those working with comparable realms of creative process. It will be an experiential introduction to this combined modality. Participants who have been in psychotherapy, and would like to deepen their connection to non-verbal and body level process are also welcome.
Johanna Climenko is a pioneer in DMT since 1968, has worked clinically with the range of populations served by DMT, and taught and consulted extensively, in and out of academic settings, in the U.S. and the Netherlands. She trained with both Marian Chace and Irmgard Bartenieff, and other first generation DMT and Laban Movement Analysis (LMA) pioneers. Since 1986, having trained with Dr. Bernard Rosenblum, she has added Reichian Character Analytic Therapy to her private practice work, developing the combined modality of DMT and RT. Currently her focus is on the complementarity of DMT, LMA, and RT in private practice and in training and consulting other mental health professionals and students in individual and organizational contexts for self-care, assessment, and replenishment.
Corinna Brown is a dancer, choreographer, and mind/body psychotherapist in NYC. She has been a DMT for over 17 years, and Visiting Assistant Professor of DMT at Pratt Institute since 2005. She has served the National ADTA Board as Government Affairs Chairperson, and the NYSADTA as President. She holds certificates in Reichian Character Analytic, mind/body psychotherapy, from her post graduate studies with Dr. Bernard Rosenblum, and one in alcohol and substance abuse counseling from LIU. She has written extensively, and was most recently published in Shawn Mcniff’s book on arts based research, as well as in the Journal of Applied Arts & Health. She has been combining DMT and RT in her private practice under the supervision of Johanna Climenko since 2000.
