ADTA Talks

Happy New Year all.  At the ADTA conference in Brooklyn, NY this past October I participated in a project called ADTA Talks.  Fifteen dance/movement therapists spoke about the work that they do in a TED Talks style presentation.  I was priviledged to be one of those chosen few DMT’s.  My talk was focused on my experiences practicing DMT with veterans and active duty military as I am among the onlyDMT’s in the world that have the exceptional honor to work with this population.  If you missed ADTA Talks, don’t worry; the inspiring presentations will be available on YouTube soon.  So stay tuned!

The Role of Mirroring

My research on mirror neurons is cited as a reference.  Enjoy.
