Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1994, Vol 39(1), 99. Reviews the books, An Introduction to Dance Movement Therapy in Psychiatry by Kristina Stanton-Jones (1992); and Dance Movement Therapy: Theory and Practice edited by Helen Payne (1992). The first book traces the development of dance movement therapy (DMT) from its American roots to its current practice worldwide. The second book is a helpful complement to the Stanton-Jones text. This well-organized volume documents DMT practice as it is carried out in the United Kingdom and provides a representation of work in the field that is based on practitioners' descriptions of their work with children and adolescents, the elderly, inpatient and outpatient psychiatric patients, and clients in a family service unit.
