The founder of Bioenergetic Analysis is Alexander Lowen, a student of Wilhelm Reich, who had decisive influence on most body psychotherapeutic methods applied today. Bioenergetic Analysis - The Clinical Journal of the IIBA, published annually by the International Institute for Bioenergetic Analysis (IIBA) in English and Portugese, is an international platform for writers and readers in this field. Its purpose is to further elaborate theoretical concepts and to make links to and enhance communication with other schools of therapy and proponents of academic psychology, medicine and psychosomatics. The journal also publishes reports on empirical research and single case studies. Bioenergetic Analysis has been published since 1985 and is the oldest journal for Bioenergetic Analysis. The present issue includes five original articles by Garry Cockburn, Guy Tonella, Angela Klopstech, Bennett Shapiro and Scott Baum, as well as two book reviews.
