Author/s: Verity Danbold
Edition: 2017 Vol. 14 Nos. 1-2
Combining academic research with experience in the field, Moods, Moves and Mudras will examine the implementation of models of dance movement therapy drawn from experiences in the UK and from using the Sampoornata model pioneered by Kolkata Sanved in India. It will reflect on efficacy, challenges and opportunities for future learning through the author’s work with five participant groups in short-term group therapy. The paper will frame understanding through an exploration of the interface between theory and practice, the process of mapping participant growth, the implementation and communication of session theme and the impact of therapeutic relationships.
