The concern of this text is the need that many individuals have for nonverbal, primarily physical forms of expression, and how this need has fueled the development of a new psychomotor discipline. The book treats the theory and practice of dance therapy, and examines the entire field from its inception through the present. Dance therapy, the use of dance/movement as a healing tool, is rooted in the idea that the body and mind are inseparable. The book is organized into three units. Unit 1, containing three sections and eight chapters, presents a view of the early development of the field of dance/movement therapy, along with an historical and chronological description of the profession as described in the published and privately circulated literature about six major pioneers in the field (Marian Chace, Blanche Evan, Liljan Espenak, Mary Whitehouse, Trudi Schoop, and Alma Hawkins) and their followers and proteges. Unit 2, "Subsequent Development of Dance Therapy," includes three sections: Laban Movement Analysis and Dance Therapy in the United States, Further Expansion of Dance Therapy Theory and Practice (East and West Coast influences, and psychotherapy), and Dance Therapy with Other Patient Groups. Unit 3 contains two sections which present respectively, results of a survey of registered dance/movement therapists and dance therapy heritage trees--the spread of influence of the major pioneers. Three appendices provide: names of survey respondents, a list of American Dance Therapy Association members, and a copy of the dance therapy questionnaire. A bibliography of approximately 800 references completes the volume. (LL)

Dance/movement as active imagination was originated by Jung in 1916. Developed in the 1960s by dance therapy pioneer Mary Whitehouse, it is today both an approach to dance therapy as well as a form of active imagination in analysis. In her delightful book Joan Chodorow provides an introduction to the origins, theory and practice of dance/movement as active imagination. Beginning with her own story the author shows how dance/ movement is of value to psychotherapy. An historical overview of Jung's basic concepts is given as well as the most recent depth psychological synthesis of affect theory based on the work of Sylvan Tomkins, Louis Stewart, and others. Finally in discussing the use of dance/movement as active imagination in practice, the movement themes that emerge and the non-verbal expressive aspects of the therapaeutic relationship are described.

This book offers a compelling research alternative for dance/movement (and other creative arts) therapists who recognize how valuable artistic ways of knowing are to the theory and practice of their profession. It encourages participation in a mode of inquiry that invites fully authentic engagement, inspires excitement about discovery, and builds confidence in abilities to contribute to the professional body of research literature. Artistic inquiry is defined as research that: (1) uses artistic methods of gathering, analyzing, and/or presenting data; (2) engages in and acknowledges a creative process; and (3) is motivated and determined by the aesthetic values of the researcher(s). These three defining characteristics are theoretically and practically examined in depth and accompanied by examples of artistic inquiry relevant to dance/movement therapy. Interdisciplinary support for the validity of artistic inquiry is drawn from a rich field of resources, including philosophy, social sciences, education, and the arts. Still/Here, a multimedia dance work by Bill T. Jones, is presented as a work of art that can be viewed as artistic inquiry. Jones' use of dance as the primary expressive medium, drawing from the verbal and nonverbal narratives of people living with terminal illnesses, exemplifies the potential that artistic inquiry has for dance/movement therapy. The book concludes with recommendations for the promotion and evaluation of artistic inquiry projects. Throughout, it upholds a vision of research as a vital, satisfying, and essential part of a dance/movement therapist's career.
