Dance/Movement Therapy Outreach for Veterans is the ADTA’s response to November as the Month of the Military Family. Your donation during this #GivingTuesday campaign will expand mental health services to veterans through the development of new dance/movement therapy programs across the country, including the dissemination of educational materials for both veterans and service providers which communicate the value of this treatment for anxiety, PTSD, and depression. The Marian Chace Foundation of the American Dance Therapy Association has approved this project, and all donations to the Marian Chace Foundation for the Outreach to Veterans project are tax deductible. The Marian Chace Foundation is proud to join the ADTA in its support of expanding dance/movement therapy services for our veterans. Please help improve the quality of life for the men and women who suffer silently, and who have so bravely given of themselves for the sake of their country.

Dance/Movement Therapy with Veterans and Military Personnel Informational Sheet
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.
