Abstract
Responsible health practitioners are increasingly expected to undertake evidence-based practice. This includes the need for effective assessment of change that occurs in the therapeutic process. Dance movement therapists are often challenged to consider how to measure outcomes of their work. Dance movement therapy training and practice often focusses on activities and processes rather than outcomes for the client. As yet, few tools exist to support assessment and evaluation in DMT.
This workshop assists participants to develop skills in thinking about outcomes for clients, utilising theory, research evidence and practice knowledge. It introduces a Framework for Dance Movement Assessment that supports professionals to think holistically about how their practice contributes. This tool is supported by iPad app MARA (Movement Assessment and Reporting App), created by the presenter to utilise technology to address these issues. The app is introduced and its features, including quantitative assessment, note taking photo, video and voice recording, and drawing are shared.
Workshop activities will include introduction to basic dance movement therapy activities, independent reflection and small group discussion about outcomes that might be expected for clients through these, and experience in assessing outcomes using the tools introduced.
