"What a moving adventure to read Prof. Helen Payne’s new book! It guides us into dance movement (psycho) therapy as an established, yet evolving, embodied practice. The 14 chapters by both old and new generation dance therapists break new ground in their depth and scope, guided by Marianne Eberhard-Kaechele’s recognition that "a discipline is held together by a shared epistemology, but it must remain flexible, to adapt to changing requirements of patients, health care, society and the individual development of therapists over time".-Marja Cantell, Ph.D., Research Coach, Master of Arts Therapies, Codarts University of the Arts, Rotterdam, the Netherlands."This book covers DMP theory, research and practice with global perspective and is an essential reading for the students, researchers, educators and practitioners in the field of creative arts education and/or therapy/psychotherapy/mental health as well as special and somatic education. Professor Helen Payne with other contributors demonstrates with rich materials in the volume the wisdom and values of our expressive and amazing body/movement which we tend to neglect and separate from our mind. Whatever your background, you will be enlightened by the insightful and cutting edge thinking in each of the chapters."-Tony Y. Zhou, Ph.D., CMA, Founder, Inspirees Institute of Creative Arts Therapy, China.
