The authors discuss the concept of embodiment, one that has been shaped by cultural messages that have created a construct of a ‘normal’ body. They discuss how somatophobia and othering dynamics have marginalized diverse bodies, and the ramifications of this phenomenon for adolescent group work. They discuss how group leaders may use techniques drawn from dance/movement therapy and drama therapy to help adolescents become comfortable with, and more expressive in, their bodies. They also emphasize the importance of group leaders being aware of their own internalized biases related to body image and othering.
