Dance Movement Therapy in Switzerland: The challenges of working with dance and movement therapy & DMT and refined body image (RBI) in the treatment of whiplash-injured people


Edition: 2004 Vol. 3 No. 1

Keywords
Kestenberg Movement Profile, Dance therapy rehabilitation, Body reference, Counter reference, Refined Body Image, Swiss dance therapy

A paired paper from two practitioners in Switzerland. The first discusses research ideas in dance movement therapy (DMT) exploring the Kestenberg Movement Profile (KMP) within a large control group that grew from smaller projects that analysed homogeneity of efficacy within KMP data. The results were significant in a range of treatment situations. The second discussed DMT rehabilitation in chronic pain management, in particular the development of Refined Body Image (RBI). The RBI tool for body reference and counter-reference was applied to whiplash populations and the treatment with RBI illustrated in patient observations. This paired paper provides both exploration of empirical research and its practical applications in Switzerland. (pp 16-19)
