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.

We are looking for dialogue with Dance Movement Therapists working with people with Parkinson’s in the context of Dance Therapy. This includes information on articles published, in process and or unpublished material.
The dance therapists involved in the Parkinson’s Dance Project are planning to start new dance therapy groups this fall. We welcome knowing about your experience and sharing ours. We are presenting in several contexts at the World Parkinson’s Conference in Montreal (October 1-4, 2013). We would also be interested in having another forum at a specific time during the ADTA October conference this fall.
We look forward to hearing from you,

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

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!
