American Dance Therapy Association 52nd Annual Conference
November 2-5, 2017
San Antonio, Texas
Movement as Pathway to Neuro Resilience and Social Connection:
Dance/Movement Therapy at the Forefront
Never has the field of psychotherapy been filled with such hope and promise. From the world of neuroscience we are learning of the astonishing capability of the human brain and nervous system for plasticity and renewal. At the same time, the fields of psychology and other applied sciences are detailing the role of the body, movement and interpersonal connection in healing the deepest psychological wounds. These tracks of inquiry, while previously parallel, are beginning to intersect in a place long familiar to dance/movement therapists: body and movement as pathway to resilience, healing and connectedness.
Thus, this year’s conference theme is a call to dance/movement therapists to make explicit the knowledge we have known implicitly for 60+ years.
The long multicultural history of Texas and the vibrant culture of San Antonio provide a dynamic setting to explore how dance/movement therapy utilizes the basic mechanisms of the body, dance and movement in facilitating resilience and relationship. San Antonio is a community with a rich history reflective of the six flags that have flown over Texas. This history comes to life with the legacy of the Alamo located in downtown San Antonio not far from the famous River Walk with shops, restaurants and entertainment.
