    Jacelyn Biondo, PhD, a new post-doctoral researcher in the Creative Arts Therapies department and CNHP alumna, published Stillness in Dance/Movement Therapy: Potentiating Creativity on the Edge and in the Void in the American Journal of Dance Therapy.

    Abstract: Creativity, at times, flows freely amongst individuals. However, at other times, creativity waivers on the edge of meaning and nothingness. This manuscript explores Eastern and Western philosophies associated with void, the thin line between dialectical phenomena, and a space which opens up for creativity. These theories of creativity will be observed through a dance/movement therapy (DMT) paradigm examining the concept of stillness within movement and particularly within a DMT session. A brief review of the following phenomena will be considered: the fertile void, the dialectical edge, and potential space. Consideration will be given to the notion of stillness as a tool for creativity in DMT and supported by case vignettes.
