    The Dance Movement Therapy community is robust, diverse, and lives in the net that our intellect and reflections weave. Consequently, this community holds us now, during the current coronavirus pandemic’s emotional rollercoaster, and will support us as we go forward. In an effort to evaluate and understand how clients’ needs have been affected, how telehealth has worked, and what we have learned, the Co-Editors invite articles from our professional community that provide case studies and new knowledge gathered in treatment during the coronavirus pandemic.
