Place "support bones" like a rib cage into the skeleton to reduce or remove the deformations from the arm and shoulder.

I usually put some rib bones or bones where I want the disortion to not occur. But before you do that..play with the radius area and slip setting on the bones between 0.0 and 1.0. That usually makes a whole world of difference.

If using the studio/animate version ...the new weight tool may be your answer but the above should take care of it.

You can make a support bone as a child of one of the spine bones. You can even detach it from it's parent bone and move it around since it will not be animated.
