    Call for Volunteer Participants


    Embodied assessment of intergenerational trauma through Dance/Movement Therapy


    My name is Leah Raulerson, and I am a DMT-in-training at Naropa University’s Somatic Counseling program in Boulder, Colorado. I am currently seeking volunteer participants to participate in research on intergenerational trauma and its embodiment.


    The purpose of the study is to explore qualitative differences between the experience of trauma that has been transmitted between generations as opposed to directly experienced trauma. This researcher seeks to discuss countertransferential felt senses within the therapist, and those presented and reported by a client with intergenerational trauma.  


    This invitation is open to clinicians who meet the following criteria: 

    • Participants hold R-DMT or BC-DMT credential
    • Participants have worked with clients living with intergenerational trauma and can speak to their own embodied experience and the reported experience of the client.
    • Participants are willing to participate in a confidential interview of less than one hour.

    If you have further questions, and are interested to participate in this study, please email or call with questions. Informed consent will be emailed upon response to this post.


    Many thanks for your generosity,

    Hello,

     

             My name is Katie Dominguez and I am a graduate student in the Dance/Movement Therapy and Counseling program at Columbia College Chicago. I write to extend a warm invitation to participate in my research study exploring the phenomenon of disenfranchised grief. You are being invited to participate if you are a dance/movement therapist (credentialed as an R-DMT or BC-DMT) who either currently works or has worked with individuals who have experienced trauma and/or grief, and are likely to have experienced this phenomenon.

           The purpose of this study is to gather clinical accounts and narratives from dance/movement therapists, like you, who work with or have worked with clients experiencing disenfranchised grief. The study further intends to identify how a client’s lived experience of disenfranchised grief presents itself within the therapeutic relationship, along with addressing the role of the body and impacts on nonverbal communication during the experience of disenfranchised grief.

     

             In order to participate in this study, you must have an R-DMT or BC-DMT credential. Secondly, you must self-identify as having worked or currently working with clients experiencing disenfranchised grief. Disenfranchised grief is operationally defined for this study:

    “Disenfranchised grief is grief that persons experience when they incur a loss that is not or cannot be openly acknowledged, publicly mourned, or socially supported” (Doka, 1989, p. 4).

    There are four areas in which a person can experience disenfranchisement of grief and they are as follows:

     

    1.     Relationships –relationships that are not deemed appropriate or legitimate by society or relationships outside of the immediate family.

    (E.g. friends, homosexual relationships, neighbor, ex-spouse, etc. )

    2.     Loss –death related losses that are not socially defined as significant, a loss that does not involve a death, and non-human death/loss.

    (E.g. abortion, peri/still/neonatal deaths, animal/pet, religious conversions, career, foreclosure, adolescent romantic relationship, Alzheimer’s disease, infertility, etc.)

    3.     Grievers –the person is not seen as capable of grief, or is not recognized as having a need to grieve.

    (E.g. children, those with intellectual/developmental disabilities, the elderly, etc.)

    4.     Circumstances of the Death –stigmatized death may inhibit those grieving from receiving social support

    (E.g. suicide, autoerotic deaths, drunk driver deaths, homicide, etc.)

    5.     Ways Individuals Grieve –certain ways of expressing grief are not socially acceptable

    (E.g. length of grieving, excessive or very little expressions of emotion, etc.)              

     

    *The experience of loss and grief in any circumstance, whether listed above or not, does not necessarily mean disenfranchisement has occurred. It is the act of being denied the social support, acknowledgment of feelings, or the right to openly express these feelings (mourn), is when disenfranchisement of grief occurs.

     

             If you self-identify as having identified disenfranchised grief in your current or past clients, and remain interested in participating in this study, please refer to the attached informed consent form for further details. Please feel free to contact me via phone or email with further questions about the study or the informed consent form. Thank you for your consideration and for the meaningful work you do.

     

    With appreciation,

    Hello,


    I am reviewing a book that references the use of reconsolidation therapy to treat PTSD and substance abuse. I am interested in finding any references to this approach by dance/movement therapists or anyone who I might speak to about their work.


    Thank-you.


    Sincerely,
