Dance Movement Therapy Intervention on Anxiety Symptoms in Palliative and Hospice Carers in Nursing Department
Richard Yunxi Zuo & Lanye Wang
This article demonstrates the effect of using Dance Movement Therapy (DMT) to alleviate stress symptoms in Palliative and Hospice carers. Twenty-five carers participated in the study, and ten of them underwent DMT. Researchers recorded the changes in these participants’ movement patterns during three therapy sessions and analyzed the results using Laban’s effort-shape system. By comparing the movement patterns before and after the therapy, the study shows a significant improvement in stress levels among palliative and hospice carers. However, further studies are needed to strengthen the evidence base.
