This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
- To assess the effects of dance movement therapy (DMT) for depression compared with no treatment (waiting list) or to standard care in both child and adult populations
- To compare DMT with other psychological interventions (e.g. psychodynamic psychotherapy or IPT, counselling or CBT)
- To compare DMT with pharmacological interventions (e.g. anti-depressants, minor tranquillisers or mood stabilisers)
- To compare DMT with other physical interventions (e.g. dance or exercise)
- To compare different forms of DMT (e.g. Laban-based DMT, Chacian DMT or Authentic Movement) (see below for explanations of these)
