Body, Movement and Dance in Psychotherapy is the only international peer-reviewed journal focusing on the role of the body in its relationship with the mind in psychotherapy. It combines two close but distinctly different fields in inter and intra - disciplinary dialogue, namely dance movement psychotherapy and body psychotherapy.

It publishes high quality research, theory and evidence-based clinical practice that follow the development of a wide range of methodologies, as well as new theoretical insights into the field of dance movement psychotherapy and body psychotherapy.
