This paper will discuss the relationship between social justice and dance/movement therapy. This relationship, acknowledged in the most recent edition of the ADTA Code of Ethics and Ethical Standards, will form the basis for a discussion of how the theoretical framework of intersectionality and the concept of interactional justice can be integrated into the work of DMT. Through this integration, with attention to the elements of identity and relationship in therapy, the author demonstrates the application of intersectionality and interactional justice with two different populations.
