    This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) seeks applications proposing Health Services research or Observational studies focused on the use of non-pharmacological approaches to symptom management for pain and associated problems (e.g., post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), substance use disorder (SUD), depression, anxiety, and sleep disturbances) among U.S. military personnel and Veterans. Research related to personnel and Veterans of all branches of the military (e.g., Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard, U.S. Military Reserves, National Guard) is of interest.

    The National Dance Education Organization (NDEO) has released the following document:

    Evidence: A Report on the Impact of Dance in the K-12 Setting.

    Dance/movement therapy is referenced specifically in relationship to at-risk youth and neuroscience.

    Seeking Dance/Movement Therapists with R-DMT or BC-DMT credentials with OCD-related experience for thesis research 

    *only 30 minute time commitment (phone/skype interview)!

    My name is Karissa Martens and I am a graduate student in the Dance/Movement Therapy and Counseling MA program at Columbia College Chicago. 

    For my graduate thesis research, I am exploring the research question: How is a positive psychology based Dance/Movement Therapy (DMT) approach a viable treatment method for Excoriation (Skin Picking) Disorder (SPD)? SPD is a new disorder listed in the Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders section of the recently published DSM-5 (published May 2013). The diagnostic criteria listed for this disorder are: recurrent skin picking resulting in skin lesions, repeated attempts to decrease or stop picking, skin picking causes clinically significant distress or impairment in important areas of functioning, and is not due to physiological effects of a substance, medical condition, or symptoms of a mental disorder.

    As a new disorder, much research is needed to uncover successful therapeutic modalities! The purpose of my thesis research is to gather responses from professionals in the fields of both DMT and SPD, like you, to start the dialogue of how DMT could be a successful treatment method for SPD. The study will be used as a launching pad for further research to possibly investigate the effects of DMT on individuals with SPD. I invite you to participate in my study if you have come across individuals with SPD, or if this study is of interest to you. Please email me if you are interested at

    Dear Practitioners in the Dance/Movement Therapy Community,

    I am a Graduate student at Pratt institute looking for research participants. My thesis focuses on how choreography can be used as a tool in Dance/Movement Therapy. I’m seeking professionals in the field who have practiced the use of choreography extensively in their DMT practice, and who are willing to be interviewed about their process of merging the two.  Ideally participants should be practicing for about 10 years.  Participants will assist in expanding the body of knowledge within the DMT community.  Please respond with interest by October 23rd at email address with heading Choreography Thesis or call tel# 516-316-0449. Thank you for your attention.

    I am looking for a dance/music therapist who might be interested in participating in a research project at the Bronx VA which involves people with Parkinson's disease. At this stage I am applying for funding, and if funded, this would take place probably late 2014-2015. At present I am just looking for letters of collaboration.

    Hello everyone!


    I work at an inpatient psychiatric hospital that serves children, adolescents, and adults. We have a new superintendent and may be going through some changes. Does anyone have any recommendations for literature around creative arts therapy as part of the treatment milieu and a treatment mall format vs. unit based programming? Thank you for your help!

    Hi Laurel,

    I suggest that you contact Nalini Prakash or Sheila Stone at St. Elizabeths Hospital in Washington, DC. They have used the treatment mall approach for several years.
