Dance/movement therapy : a healing art by Fran J Levy( Book )

8 editions published between 1988 and 2005 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The concern of this text is the need that many individuals have for nonverbal, primarily physical forms of expression, and how this need has fueled the development of a new psychomotor discipline. The book treats the theory and practice of dance therapy, and examines the entire field from its inception through the present. Dance therapy, the use of dance/movement as a healing tool, is rooted in the idea that the body and mind are inseparable. The book is organized into three units. Unit 1, containing three sections and eight chapters, presents a view of the early development of the field of dance/movement therapy, along with an historical and chronological description of the profession as described in the published and privately circulated literature about six major pioneers in the field (Marian Chace, Blanche Evan, Liljan Espenak, Mary Whitehouse, Trudi Schoop, and Alma Hawkins) and their followers and proteges. Unit 2, "Subsequent Development of Dance Therapy," includes three sections: Laban Movement Analysis and Dance Therapy in the United States, Further Expansion of Dance Therapy Theory and Practice (East and West Coast influences, and psychotherapy), and Dance Therapy with Other Patient Groups. Unit 3 contains two sections which present respectively, results of a survey of registered dance/movement therapists and dance therapy heritage trees--the spread of influence of the major pioneers. Three appendices provide: names of survey respondents, a list of American Dance Therapy Association members, and a copy of the dance therapy questionnaire. A bibliography of approximately 800 references completes the volume. (LL)
Black women in sport by Tina Sloan Green( Book )

3 editions published between 1981 and 1984 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An overview of the achievements of black women in sports is presented in this collection of essays, biographical sketches, and philosophical investigations. The work is divided into five chapters, the first of which focuses on prejudice (racial and sexual), absence of black women as subjects in the research base, work/home/family pressures, black sports competency as "natural," and other myths and realities of the involvement of women in black sports. Chapter 2 presents biographical sketches of 17 outstanding black sportswomen, detailing athletic achievements, honors and awards, career and educational experiences, affiliations, and personal statements. Chapter 3 presents solutions to the issues of sport participation disparities between blacks and whites, the problem of prejudice, the need for consciousness raising among blacks, and the necessity for whites to be aware of and resolve their racial prejudice. Chapter 4 presents a cross-cultural study of Nigerian women in sport, an attempt to seek the African roots of black sportswomen. Chapter 5 presents two philosophically based arguments; the first, an examination of characteristics of master/slave relationships and the need to abolish such relationships. The second speculates about the positive and negative aspects of the future of black women in sports. (Mjb)

Intramurals and club sports : a handbook by Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, Reston, Va American Alliance for Health( Book )

2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nature of intramural programming has changed over the years; competitive leagues do not dominate the schedule of events as they once did. Strategically placed throughout the year are at least four other programming options, which include self-paced programs, challenge activities, social events, and club sports. This handbook provides the intramural director with information that will assist in developing the first time program or improving the long standing one. It contains activities and administrative procedures that can be adapted to insure a successful program. The four sections of the handbook deal with program philosophies, organization and administration, sports tournaments and special events, and sports clubs. (Jd)
