Orit Krug, founder of Orit Krug, Inc. and an award-winning, board-certified Dance/Movement Therapist who helps individuals and couples who have experienced trauma repair their damaged relationships joins eHealth Radio and the Health News and Relationship Channels.
Listen to the interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Orit Krug as they discuss the following:
You deal specifically with people and couples who have trauma. What percentage of people have gone through some type of trauma? And while we know that obvious things like sexual abuse and domestic violence constitute trauma, what are some more subtle types of trauma?
Why does trauma often lead to people sabotaging their relationships? Take me through the process of how trauma translates to the potential destruction of what might have previously been a loving relationship?
Why can Dance/Movement Therapy succeed where traditional talk therapy may not? Can it be effective to do both?
You base your Dance/Movement Therapy practice on neuroscience. What does that mean, and what advantage does that bring to your clients?
I’m assuming that if people don’t want to actually dance, they can engage in movement. What types of movement can typically be used in a session? How simple or complex can these movements be?
How long should a person or couple expect to be in Dance/Movement Therapy before they see results?
TIP: Dance/Movement Therapy can be a very effective adjunct to traditional talk therapy. Instead of just sitting and talking (which can still be very helpful for many), Dance/Movement Therapy uses your body and movement as the primary medium of connecting with yourself, understanding your emotions and patterns, and working together in the therapeutic relationship. When therapy is approached this way, it allows us to bypass the mind’s defenses while promoting mind-body integration that creates change much more quickly and deeply than traditional therapies. However, it’s much more effective to get involved with a Dance/Movement Therapist who understands the neuroscience behind the movements and why they work. A therapist with this depth of knowledge understands the type of treatment and movements that will affect the parts of the brain and nervous system that can truly catalyze the changes that each client is looking for.
