“This case study explores an open Dance Movement Therapy group in a public Day Hospital in Athens, with patients facing severe mental health issues, led by two DM therapists. Methodology involves analysis of the notes taken by the therapists after each session, combined with psychodynamic group theories. Specific attention is given to the achievement of cohesion in an open group structure, as well as to the process of making a place for DMT in the “matrix” of the Day Hospital. It is argued that setting clear, though flexible boundaries resulted in resilience for the DMT group and strengthened the therapists’ professional identity in the institution”.
