In Search of a Voice: Working with Homeless Men. Judith Ginzberg. (1991). American Journal of Dance Therapy Spring/Summer 1991, Volume 13, Issue 1, pp 33-48.
From the abstract: “The process of establishing dance/movement therapy in two shelters [in New York City] is described. The initial goals delineated are: establishing trust, reducing tension, enhancing self-esteem, facilitating self-expression and creativity, and promoting group interaction and understanding among the homeless men. The importance of being able to work with large groups of 50 to 200 individuals in order to transform the environment and effect the greatest numbers is posited, and the methods are discussed. Ritual, rhythm, and the use of appropriate music, as well as the occasional use of props are cited as important factors.”
