    The Black American and African Descendants (BAAD) Affinity Group is an affiliate of the ADTA’s Multicultural and Diversity Committee (MDC).  We are proud to announce our very first newsletter issue, called The BAAD Review.  It is now available on the BAAD website, access it for printing or on-line reading athttp://baadaffinitygroup.weebly.com/the-baad-review.html.


    The BAAD Review is a bi-annual publication. It is designed for the clinician or holistic healer who wants to broaden their cultural worldview and increase or include an Afro-centric sensibility regarding health. The BAAD Review encourages its writers and readers to be passionate about deepening their personal interactions and professional clinical competencies with a better understanding of racial, ethnic, and cultural dynamics. Each issue will feature articles about personal development, clinical theories and applications from an Afro-centric perspective, as well as, artistic, socio-political, or spiritual expressions from the African, African-American, and Afro-Latino communities. Article submissions are welcome, particularly thesis and dissertation excerpts that explore the experience of the Black student and/or Black client in therapy; the non-Black person’s exploration of working with Black co-workers, classmates, or clients; and/or encountering artistry or sociopolitical commentary in the Black community.

    Subject: CCC Dance/Movement Therapy Research participants wanted for a focus group on religious multicultural competence- Registered and Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapists only please.


    Hi my name is Jaclyn Abramson, and you are invited to participate in a Columbia College Chicago graduate research study. The purpose of the study is to examine dance/movement therapists who have BC-DMT and R-DMT credentials, to better understand how they develop religious multicultural competence and initiate a dialogue about religious multicultural competence among dance/movement therapists.


    I am looking for participants who believe they have developed religious multicultural competence and are willing to participate in a focus group.  The two-hour focus group will take place in a private reserved room on Columbia College Chicago property in the month of June. Based on the group member’s availability, a date and time will be later notified via email. After the focus group is complete, I will email my findings to the focus group members. I will ask them to interpret what I discovered in order to deepen and clarify my interpretations of the material.


    If you are interested in participating and need information regarding the IRB, please contact me via e-mail: Jaclyn.abramson@loop.colum.edu for further details. If you do not live in the state of Illinois and you are still interested in participating, please note that you are still eligible to participate through the use of technology, such as Skype or on a conference call.

    I look forward to hearing from you,

    Jackie Abramson

    We, the members of BAAD, appreciate such a warm and heartfelt message of gratitude and encouragement from the President of the ADTA!  I, personally, am honored as you helped me to produce my thesis work, which sparked the passion for the BAAD Review!

    Dear Friends & Colleagues,

     

    Do you have any recommendations for good articles on cross cultural healing work/multicultural issues and dynamics in dance/movement and body psychotherapy?

     

    The context is a doctoral course on the embodied psyche that integrates elements from Authentic Movement and other forms of Dance/movement therapy, Somatics and creative arts with Depth Psychology.  Each year I work to update the multicultural/diversity articles and would really appreciate any recommendations you may have. 

     

     If you happen to have a pdf of the article and it would be alright to share it that would be wonderful!   Otherwise, the full reference for it will help me to look for it. 

     

    Thank you in advance for any resources that may come to mind in this essential aspect of our professional training, work and world.

     

    Warmly,

    Tina Stromsted, Ph.D., BC-DMT
