A Message from the Executive Committee of the American Dance Therapy Association

The American Dance Therapy Association denounces and opposes all acts of intolerance that are on the rise in our country and around the world represented in the rhetoric and actions of neo-Nazi, white supremacist and other groups whose messages of hate and fear attempt to divide our diverse communities. These messages promoting racism and discrimination have harmful effects on the mental health of individuals, groups, and society, fueling increases in violence, anxiety, and depression while also leading to disparities in the delivery of mental health services.

Utilizing  our skills, training, and compassion to dissipate these attempts at separation, our profession remains steadfast in the foundational principles of beneficence, veracity, and justice. We seek to improve the lives of our clients and the communities we all live in. Ethical practice includes the understanding that we as Dance/Movement Therapists “…recognize the dignity and worth of all persons…promote social justice with a recognition that a just society contributes to individual, family, and community health (and) …address oppression and disparities in power and privilege, resulting in barriers to wellness at individual, institutional, and societal levels…” (Sections 1.1.b, 6.0, 6,0.a, ADTA Ethical Code and Standards)

Following these guiding principles, the ADTA stands at the ready to serve those affected by harmful, damaging, and divisive effects of hate, fear, racism, anti-semitism, homophobia, and violence.
