Book Description
Dance Therapy and Depth Psychology discusses the psychotherapeutic approach to dance movement therapy, a method first proposed by Jung in 1916. Later developed in the 1960s by dance therapy pioneer, Mary Whitehouse, it has become today's most popular form of dance therapy.

In Dance Therapy and Depth Psychology, Joan Chodorow provides a detailed exploration of dance/movement as active imagination. Beginning with her own story, from her early work in dance, performance and teaching, to her growth as a dance therapist, psychotherapist, and Jungian analyst, Chodorow shows, in a more immediate way, how dance/movement is of immense value to the psychological development of patients and to psychotherapy in general.

Editorial Reviews
Rachel Naomi Remen MD, author of Kitchen Table Wisdom: Stories That Heal
Dance As A Healing Art is a powerful tool for anyone who wants to find joy in living with an altered body.

Jean Shinoda Bolen MD, author of Close to the Bone: Life-Threatening Illness and the Search for Meaning
Anna Halprin's Dance As A Healing Art is a remarkable gift of herself to workshop leaders and people with cancer. Dance as authentic movement that can tap into deep emotions and archetypal images was the means Anna herself used to recover from her own recurrence of cancer twenty years ago. For the next two decades, she led workshops for people with cancer that were profound, healing experiences. Now, she has distilled wwat she learned and taught into acccessible chapters. She leads us in dance as a healing art and we can now follow her steps.

A Customer Review
How to Deal With Gravity, August 17, 2000
Reviewer: A 1-year old reader from USA
Gravity is the most influencial force in our lives. Eric Franklin's Dynamic Alignment Through Imagery deals how to move in the gravity field.

I am not a professial dancer. But I am approaching walking the 4.0 minute mile using body images in Franklin's book as a guide for good alignment. This imagery that moves your body parts better keeps your interest. It is fun. Right now I am working on hip motions images.

How much do I like it? I bought five copies to give to my children so they could share good alignment with my grandchildren. So, they all will know how to deal with and make peace with gravity.

Synopsis
Dance movement therapy is the use of creative movement and dance in a therapeutic alliance. It uses the relationship between motion and emotion as a vehicle through which an individual can engage in personal integration towards a clearer definition of self. During the last 10 years, dance movement therapy, along with the other arts therapies, has consolidated as a separate and valid therapy in health, education and the voluntary and social services. "Dance Movement Therapy" offers dance movement therapists and students, as well as allied professionals, an insight into state-of-the-art DMT practice in the UK. The first book to document UK practice, it aims to provide a clear and balanced picture of representative work in the field, from its use with the mentally ill, learning-disabled and emotionally disturbed, through to high-functioning adults. Including both descriptive accounts and those based on research and academic scholarship, they highlight the different methods used within different settings. No one particular model is stressed. This book should be of interest to professionals in training and in practice in dance movement therapy, mental health and education.
