Using Dance Therapy with High School Students: A Strategy for School Counselors
Chibbaro, Julia S.; Holland, Charleta Reshae
Georgia School Counselors Association Journal, v20 n1 Nov 2013
Professional school counselors are challenged to meet the needs of all students and need a variety of interventions enabling them to meet those needs. High school is a time when many adolescents struggle with social, emotional, and physical issues (Gysbers & Henderson, 2006). Ninth through twelfth grades are critical years of any teenager's life, and can also be challenging times for them to openly express their feelings. Dance and movement therapy allows adolescents to express themselves in a behavioral form that is acceptable and active. It is often easier for adolescents to express themselves physically than verbally, especially when communicating conflict and/or emotional turmoil (Gladding, 2006).
