This outline profiles two programs that use dance/movement therapy to help students with low self-esteem, poor body image, poor self-control, lack of trust in others, difficulty identifying and expressing feelings, and poor interpersonal relating skills. Students referred for dance/movement therapy services are assessed for appropriateness, and are eventually scheduled for weekly sessions. Students are seen either individually, in pairs, or in small groups. This therapy involves a holistic approach of psychotherapy which encourages self-expression through movement. It is primarily a non-verbal therapeutic modality which promotes emotional and physical integration. Included in the outline of this program is an overview; a purpose statement; the implementation period of the program; program characteristics; the targeted population; the services provided; the staff; funding concerns; problems; and evaluation data. The programs were designed to increase social competence and to allow children and adolescents the opportunity to express creatively their inner concerns, anxieties, and emotional conflicts in a safe non-threatening manner.
