Dance/movement as active imagination was originated by Jung in 1916. Developed in the 1960s by dance therapy pioneer Mary Whitehouse, it is today both an approach to dance therapy as well as a form of active imagination in analysis. In her delightful book Joan Chodorow provides an introduction to the origins, theory and practice of dance/movement as active imagination.
Beginning with her own story the author shows how dance/ movement is of value to psychotherapy. An historical overview of Jung's basic concepts is given as well as the most recent depth psychological synthesis of affect theory based on the work of Sylvan Tomkins, Louis Stewart, and others. Finally in discussing the use of dance/movement as active imagination in practice, the movement themes that emerge and the non-verbal expressive aspects of the therapaeutic relationship are described.

About the Author:

Joan Chodorow Ph.D. is an analyst member of the C. G. Jung Institute of San Fransisco, in private practice. Her early background uncludes dance studies and performing and teaching experience. Her dance therapy training was with Trudi Schoop and Mary Whitehouse. She is a registered dance therapist and former President of the American Dance Therapy Association.

Review:

"Clearly written, rich with information . . . a beautiful and important work."
-Dr. Nisha Zenoff, 1991
"What a marvelous adventure to read Joan Chodorow's book. I have no words to describe the love and joy that engulfed me as I read it. It is so interesting, tremendous! Joan Chodorow speaks and dances the Jungian thought; the Jungian genius becomes embodied in her work. A wonderful book."
-Trudi Schoop, 1990
"Joan Chodorow has provided an excellent account of the origins and development of dance/movement as a form of active imagination. She affirms the role of the unconscious in its personal, cultural and archetypal forms. She has made a real contribution to the field, both in respect to dance therapy and to analytical psychology. The result is outstanding."
-Dr. Joseph L. Henderson, 1990
""Dance Therapy and Depth Psychology is quickly becoming a major book for the arts therapies community. . . . Chodorow proves that the therapeutic relationship is the vital container for powerful experiences of emotional joy and pain encountered in therapy as self-exploration."
-"Times Higher Education Supplement, March 1991
"For anyone working with imagination, creative expression, dreams, sand play, dance or the body--as psychotherapist, teacher or practitioner--there is much to learn from Joan Chodorow's new book. . . . Just as the ballet has its cast of stars, Chodorow has combined the works of several outstanding theorists to create an integrated and moving masterpiece. Just as one can go to an opera, concert or ballet several times and discover something new each time, this book is worth re-reading."
-Dr. Phyllis Vosbeck
