Originally from a professional dance training (1976-79) Caroline has developed her research and practice with particular reference to inclusive community and disability as a marker of difference within the context of the dynamics of the human relationship with otherness.  The principles of psychodynamic DMP, eco-psychology and New-Materialism underpin her approach.  After publishing widely in these areas, she is currently engaged in a PhD by publication.

For the past two decades, Caroline has been an active member of the Association for Dance Movement Psychotherapy (ADMP UK) and during that time, she has served as editor for e-motion the quarterly journal and as a member of the Professional Development Committee, the UKCP working group and the Education and Training Committee. This has supported her in ensuring that the MA DMP training is closely aligned to developments in the professional field.
