In the past the practice of body psychotherapy has been taken less seriously in professional circles than more traditional psychotherapeutic approaches.
Body Psychotherapy redresses the balance, offering insights into a spectrum of approaches within body-oriented psychotherapy. A range of experienced contributors introduce new areas of development and emerging theory and clinical material, covering:
* the history of body psychotherapy
* theoretical perspectives on body psychotherapy, including post-Reichian and development of integrative methodologies
* body psychotherapy in practice, including applications for trauma and regression
* the future for body psychotherapy.
This book shows how body psychotherapy can be healing, reparative and rewarding. It will make essential reading for postgraduates and professionals, whether they are already involved in this field, or wish to learn more about incorporating it into their own practice.
--- from the publisher
'This book should make it possible for those psychotherapists whose training did not involve much (or any) focus on the theory and practice of body psychotherapy to think about adding a bodily perspective to their existing ways of doing things. And, it goes without saying, body psychotherapists will find the book an enormously useful resource - stimulating, comprehensive and responsible.' - Andrew Samuels, University of Essex, UK
