The book starts with a historical overview of the development of dance therapy. It positions dance therapy within the context of body-centered approaches and discusses the factors and forces of therapeutic impact. In the second part the author presents selected concepts of dance, each of which focusses specifically on the body, on movement, and on expression. The components of dance are screened for their usefulness for dance-therapeutic work. The book offers numerous examples and thus connects the analysis to actual therapeutic praxis.
