Abstract or Description

Creative Bodies in Therapy, Performance and Community champions several diverse and innovative approaches in the professional engagement with the creative body as a catalyst for change in therapy, education, somatics, and performance.

With contributors from the wide-ranging fields of performance and visual arts, psychotherapy, dance and somatics, this book articulates practice-based experiences in a creative language. The readers are invited to move from the process of reading, into the experience of being in and making sense of the world through a moving body. The book meanders purposefully through practice-led embodied approaches in research that generate new knowledge, methodological frameworks that have emerged in response to the needs of different contexts, as well as oferring a window on first-hand experience as practice.

The book will appeal to a wide range of practitioners and trainees in dance movement psychotherapy, arts therapies, counselling and psychotherapy, somatics, community practice and performance.
