Innovations in the Field: Dance Movement Psychotherapy in Scotland: Vicky Karkou 

Dance Movement Psychotherapy (DMP) has developed out of movement-based therapy where the client-therapist relationship plays a central role. The professional association for DMP defines the field as: ‘the psychotherapeutic use of movement and dance through which a person can engage creatively in a process to further their emotional, cognitive, physical and social integration’ (ADMT UK, 2007).

Through acknowledging and supporting the client’s movements, the DMP practitioner facilitates clients to arrive at new understandings of personal and relational issues and to achieve therapeutic change.
