American Journal of Dance Therapy Aims and scope Submit manuscript


During the 51st American Dance Therapy Association conference keynote presentation, The Biochemistry of Love, Dr. C. Sue Carter, Executive Director of the Kinsey Institute, discussed the role of oxytocin and vasopressin in social behavior and attachment in humans. Post-conference, Dr. Carter spoke with this author in an audio-recorded interview, summarizing some of her talk and emphasizing how oxytocin and vasopressin interact in ways that help to understand the biological “dance of life.” This unique interdisciplinary collaboration aids the profession of dance/movement therapy in understanding the dance of connection through the biology of love and safety—an essential ingredient for healing and repair. This article is an edited transcription of the original audio.
