The Work : New York State Dance Therapy Association

The Work

Dance therapy, or dance/movement therapy (DMT), as defined by the American Dance Therapy Association, is “the psychotherapeutic use of movement as a process which furthers the emotional, social, cognitive, and physical integration of the individual.” (www.adta.org)

People seeking psychotherapy often turn to verbal therapists; dance/movement therapists work in both the verbal and nonverbal realms using the body as a primary medium for expression. Experienced DMT’s may work in private practice and are licensed psychotherapists in NY State. Dance/movement therapists are also employed in psychiatric hospitals, mental health clinics, day care centers, developmental centers, correctional facilities, schools and rehabilitation facilities, working with a wide range of people and ages, in individual and group therapy. Dance/movement therapy can also be used in couples and family counseling/therapy.

For more information about Dance/Movement Therapy, please visit our national organization’s website at www.atda.org.
