Because we believe that movement and body patterns are indicative of a person’s personality and mood states, dance/movement therapists utilize movement observation and psychological framework to guide the therapeutic process. Dance/movement therapists use a spectrum of movement interventions in their practice, from simple breath work to full-bodied dance movements.
