    Dance/Movement Therapy Outreach to Veterans

    #GivingTuesday


    On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, the ADTA - with the generous support of the Marian Chace Foundation - is participating in #GivingTuesday: a global day dedicated to giving.


    Last year, more than 27,000 organizations in 68 countries came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday.  Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours, and activities that bring about real change in communities.

    As you reflect on how you would like to participate in this year's #GivingTuesday campaign, we invite you to make the mental health of veterans a priority by supporting the ADTA's inaugural “Dance/Movement Therapy Outreach to Veterans” Campaign. Your donation to the Marian Chace Foundation of the American Dance Therapy Association during this #GivingTuesday campaign will expand mental health services to veterans through the development of new dance/movement therapy programs across the country, including the dissemination of educational materials for both veterans and service providers which communicate the value of this treatment for anxiety, PTSD, and depression.


    The Marian Chace Foundation has approved this project, and all donations to the Marian Chace Foundation for the "Outreach to Veterans" project are tax deductible. Please help improve the quality of life for the men and women who suffer silently, and who have so bravely given of themselves for the sake of their country.

    Get excited about #GivingTuesday! Help spread the word. Share the ADTA’s #GivingTuesday posts on Facebook and Twitter. Share the link to www.adta.org with friends and colleagues so they can consider the “Dance/Movement Therapy Outreach to Veterans” as a potential recipient.

    No donation is too small. Every share matters.

    Learn more about this global campaign at www.givingtuesday.org

    Support the “Dance/Movement Therapy Outreach to Veterans” campaign with a donation at www.adta.org.

    Giving of any kind… taking an action… begins the process of change and moves us to remember that we are part of a much greater universe.  ~ Mbali Creazzo

    Hello all,

    I received a message from Allyson Huggins who is looking for a dance/movement therapist interested in facilitating a DMT session for residents at Geel Community Services, a supportive housing program in the Bronx. This will be for a special event during an annual health fair on September 23rd from 10 am - 2:30 pm.

    This is a great opportunity to expand DMT in the community and hopefully to a new site. If anyone is available and interested, please contact Allyson directly via email at Ahuggins@... or via phone at 718-585-5585 ext. 14 for further details.

    The New Jersey Task Force on Licensure for Drama Therapy and Dance/Movement Therapy would like to announce that the "Drama Therapists and Dance/Movement Therapists  Licensing Act"  has been introduced into the New Jersey State Assembly.

    This bill is known as :  A4582, in the NJ State Assembly.


    The NJ Task Force has been working tirelessly for over a year, to reach this point, and will continue to advocate for the passage of this bill, towards the creation of a NJ State License for Drama Therapists and Dance/Movement Therapists. 

    We will need the support of all our members,  as we move forward in this process.

    We expect that a vote will be taken on our bill in the fall, so the next few months will be an important time for advocacy.

     

    Please stay tuned for updates. We  will keep you informed, as we have new information.

    Thank you, in advance, for your active support!

    Join the ADTA Global Social Media Campaign during Creative Arts Therapies Week!

    March 15 - 21



    In the social media sphere, a community does not need to be large to be heard. The community only need be passionate and active. We are that community! Use your voice this Creative Arts Therapies Week to declare your pride in our profession.

    Each day of  CAT week, the ADTA will be promoting important information via the following platforms:

    The new ADTA Blog: Moving Dance/Movement Therapy Forward!

    The ADTA Official Facebook Page

    The ADTA Twitter Account

    The ADTA Pinterest Boards: 

    ADTA on LinkedIn

    Help fill the virtual airwaves this next week with dance/movement therapy content. Be sure to use the hashtag #CATW2015 on all your posts. Share, share, share!

    Additionally, this year marks the first Creative Arts Therapies Week Participation Contest!

    Our campaign focus this year is to get our ADTA Youtube and blog posts to rise to the tops of the search engines. You can help make this happen in just a few minutes time.

    Both the ADTA blog posts and the ADTA Talks allow you to post a comment. The number of comments and the words in these comments influence the search results.  The PR Committee asks you to write a few lines in response to the posts and videos of your choice. Be sure to use the words "dance/movement therapy" in your comment, somewhere.

    To celebrate ADTA membership, each day of CAT week, a winner will be chosen randomly from those ADTA members who contributed new comments on ADTA blog posts and ADTA Talks videos!  Winners will receive prizes from the ADTA Store.  The GRAND PRIZE WINNER of the week will be the ADTA member who contributes the MOST comments on ADTA blog posts and ADTA Talks videos combined. The grand prize winner will receive a gift certificate for a free ADTA webinar of his or her choice.

    Let us celebrate each other and our profession this week by sharing widely about dance/movement therapy and our fellow creative arts therapies.

    Happy Creative Arts Therapies Week!
