This workbook will provide you with the tools you need to start using your own mind-body connection to enhance the therapeutic relationship. Informed by the field of dance/movement therapy, this workbook is designed for clinicians looking to enhance their practice through nonverbal communication, movement, and body awareness. This workbook is for you if you are:

  • looking for ways to support your client's verbal processing
