The benefits of dance/movement therapy (DMT) as a psychotherapeutic intervention are well-established. The American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA), founded in 1966, is a professional organization dedicated to the profession of dance/movement therapy. Dance/movement therapy uses movement to "further the emotional, cognitive, physical and social integration of the individual."  Through movement, DMT can help individuals with a wide range of psychological disorders achieve greater self-expression.
