Research & NICE

Written by Abdul on . Posted in Uncategorized

FAQ Journal Catalogue Research Opportunities Call for research participants 2017 Research Opportunities in Dance Movement Psychotherapy February 2017   NICE update Dr Bonnie Meekums writes: As NICE representative (now resigned after six years), I recently gave feedback on a draft of the following publication: NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR HEALTH AND CARE EXCELLENCE Guideline scope Dementia: assessment, management and support for people living with dementia and their carers As a result of this, the scope now includes the following: 3.2 Current practice Current options for managing the cognitive symptoms of dementia include the acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitors (donepezil, rivastigmine and galantamine) and the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist memantine. Antipsychotics licensed for short-term use (for example risperidone) are options in certain circumstances to manage the behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia. In addition, non-pharmacological treatment can help with the symptoms of dementia. These treatments include psychological and cognitive therapies (such as cognitive stimulation therapy), which can be used to improve memory skills in people living with dementia. Alternative therapies such as the therapeutic use of music or dancing, animal-assisted therapy, aromatherapy, massage and multi-sensory stimulation may help with the behavioural symptoms of dementia, and treatment can be tailored to individual needs. I am delighted to see this inclusion, especially since our Cochrane Systematic Review (Karkou & Meekums) is well underway, of DMT for dementia. We recently presented our research at a day conference in Cambridge, organised by ICRA. The depression review (Meekums, Karkou & Nelson) was published earlier this year. There is still much to do, including the establishment in people’s minds of the differences between dance and DMP, before our profession receives the recognition it deserves, but the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step (Lao Tzu). I have dedicated my working life to taking mindful, single steps. It is now time for others to take this forward. Bonnie Meekums, PhD, Fellow ADMP   Dr. Bonnie Meekums, the ADMP representative for NICE, has let us know that there are two new publications: Closing the gap priorities for essential change in mental health and Psychosis and schizophrenia in adults treatment and management Clinical guidelines CG178 Issued: February 2014 Bonnie writes: You might want to go straight to 9.3.5 on page 220.  Of note on page 221: ‘ arts therapies are currently the only interventions (both psychological and pharmacological) to demonstrate consistent efficacy in the reduction of negative symptoms.’ They go on, of course, to recommend the use of arts therapies at all stages of treatment.

The Empty Studio

Authentic Movement: Embodied Empathy

Intensive Retreat Monday 4 Sept - Friday 8 Sept 2017

                        Professor Helen Payne, PhD

UKCP accredited psychotherapist; MBACP; ADMP UK Snr. Reg. movement psychotherapist. Helen is one of the leading international experts in the field of Body/Movement Psychotherapy.  Authentic Movement (AM) will be the method used during this intensive. Pioneered by Mary Starks Whitehouse in California, AM enables a direct connection to the depths of our unconscious, accessing the rich resources of our intuitive wisdom expressed through the embodied word, image, sensation and relationship as well as through natural, rejuvenating movement. Founded on Jung’s concept of the active imagination and the collective unconscious, authentic movement also derives from dance movement therapy, play therapy, groupwork and spiritual practice where symbolic meaning is seen in physical expression. As practised with Helen it has a safe, self-directed, non-judgemental and empathic framework. Participants learn to dwell more easily in their bodies, and to engage creatively with a direct experience of the self beyond words and concepts. It can assist in developing body awareness, body-mind-spirit connections and kinetic meditation where mindfulness is crucial to practice. The roles of witness and mover are explored in dyadic, triadic and group formations with the four phase process. The retreat will provide ritual, witnessing and movement experiences, silence, verbal and symbolic reflective processes, as well as small teaching seminars. Due to the environment we will explore participatory consciousness which can emerge through engaging in authentic movement in relationship with all aspects of the sentient world.  Be inspired in a setting with wildlife up close, beautiful landscapes, places to explore, good food and friendly faces. Studio sessions will be interspersed with reflection time in silence, opportunities to experience nature and artwork periods. Seminars will address questions arising from your explorations in studio time as well as those relevant to your professional practice. Who Can Apply? This intensive is for practitioners qualified in counselling/psychotherapy or the arts therapies with substantial personal therapy. If your background is outside these areas please contact Helen to discuss the suitability of the course for you.  No experience in dance is required. You will need an aspiration to inhabit your body more fully and to re-discover your authentic nature through bridging psyche, soma and spirit. This is suitable for both beginners and those experienced in Authentic Movement. Some applicants participate regularly for on-going training, some for personal development, whilst some are new to the circles. Times: 4.00pm, Monday 4 September 2017 -11.00am Friday 8 September 2017 Equipment: Bring backjack to sit on if required, notebook/journal and art materials.

She has been working as a psychotherapist (UKCP Reg.) since 1990 and as a trainer and researcher for over three decades both in clinical and private practice.

She is trained in Person-Centred Counselling and Group Analysis. This together with experience of practice-based research Laban Dance/Analysis, Buddhist meditation, Analytical Psychology, Process-work, and Shamanism helps her to provide a safe, creative and transformative environment.
