Abstract

The purpose of this thesis was to create a dance/movement therapy (DMT) in-service model for dance/movement therapists to effectively communicate and increase knowledge about DMT to colleagues on an interdisciplinary team. The Delphi Method was used to organize a panel of professional dance/movement therapists to collaborate and produce a cohesive in-service for other professional dance/movement therapists. Panel members offered their perspectives on the following research questions: What are effective ways to communicate the work of a dance/movement therapist to an interdisciplinary team? Which ways are ineffective in communicating the work of a dance/movement therapist to an interdisciplinary team? How do dance/movement therapists describe their personal style of dance/movement therapy to interdisciplinary colleagues? 79 pages.
