Body perspective in various working fields

I was asked to translate the summary of my books on various concepts and working fields in bioenergetics nto English. Here you will find the list of summaries. The books are writtenin German. But perhaps if you are interested anf know someone who speaks German it will be of some help to you. The book “bioenergetics in practise” ia already translated into Italien since many years. The book on body language will be published in Chinese in spring 2016 in Peking.

If you have any questions to the publications please let me know. I will try to answer as soon as I can.

Body-Psychotherapy

Body-Psychotherapy is a distinct branch of psychotherapy and has a long history and a theoretical position which is proofed by scientific research. It is theoretically and practically based among others on psychoanalysis, attachment and movement  theory, infant research and neuro-psychology.

Body-Psychotherapy involves an explicit theory of mind-body functioning. The common underline assumption is …………….

Practical work part 1 (Bioenergetic Analysis)

The BA as a body psychotherapy therefore works with the physical tension, the breathing, the shaping of the body and personality by the life experience / history, the individual mind and the relationship constellations in childhood and in everyday life today. The BA explicitly and specifically works with the process of respiration, the differentiated (body) perception, the physical (self-) expression. This is supported either by specific exercises / settings or by looking at this process on the level of transference and countertransference. (Lowen 1981, 1984, Koemeda-Lutz 2002)

The “grounding-concept” probably is the best well-known concept of BA. It shows …………

Character structures (Bioenergetic Analysis)

The richness of one`s own history and one`s individual experience and the various patterns of tension and holding back in the body will find their psychological / psychic relevance in the character structure. It corresponds as psychological component of the form and movement of the body and functionally is identical to it. It is very resistant to all influences from outside and to change. The entire pattern of excitement and tension controls the power and the use of one´s own bodily energy, the life energy. You cannot understand (and work with) the energy dynamics of a person without the concept of the character structure. (Schwieger 1998).

Induced (by specific experience) limited mobility and charging of the body causes new emotional ………….

The energy concept part 2 (Bioenergetic Analysis)

These emotions, feelings and physical sensations are the perception of internal movements of the “energetic body associated with its natural rhythms and vibrations. These “inner movements” are referred to as motility of the body. For a baby, this can be easily observed when one follows the constant interplay of movements like waves on a lake. These are caused by internal forces, without being subject to the arbitrary interference. All voluntary movements always have an involuntary component, which can be understood as a basic motility of the organism. The involuntary and voluntary activity are integral components of liveliness and spontaneity of human actions and movements. If it is missing or it is reduced, the body movements are mechanical and lifeless. Expressive movements always include elements of feeling, which always turn into involuntary components. These components …………..

The energy concept part 1 (Bioenergetic Analysis)

The energy concept of BA sees man as a “reservoir of energy” that comes into contact with the environment. This process usually starts and develops in our culture (in all cultures!!) mostly via the relationship to “mother (figure)”. The experience and the embodiment of one`s own personality and the herewith connected individual way of relating to the “mother (figure)”, and later to one`s father, influence the whole life of an adult human. The way how one lives relationships is among others very individually characterized by gratification, conflict resolution, self-presentation and dialogue.

The BA does not only ………………

Brief historical background of the Bioenergetic Analysis (BA)

The psychoanalysts Wilhelm Reich, Otto Fenichel and Sandor Ferenczi had put the body into the focus of their interest in psychotherapy. Since then, a variety of body psychotherapy schools had been developed.

Alexander Lowen, founder of BA/bioenergetics, had met Reich in the 50s of last century in the seminar to discuss the psychoanalytic theory and therapeutic practice and the social importance of the same. The impulse itself by being involved in a therapy together with Wilhelm Reich with the experience of one’s body and the interaction of personality / character structure and …………….

The body tells YOUR story

The Bioenergetic Analysis (Bioenergetics) allows access to the topics / problems of understanding and acting on the level of interaction between the body and the analytical process. This is possible because the body is functionally identical to the person, on all levels. Feelings, thoughts and issues of life of an individual always manifest in the expression of the body. A diagnostic identification of these aspects is precisely possible because of the shape, the structure and motility of the body. It is necessary that one is able to read the language of the body.

These patterns of feeling, …………

The Psoas is:…..the orientation to the core of yourself (1)

If you guessed C, you’re correct. Buried deep within the core ofyour body, the psoas (pronounced “so-az”) affects every facet of your life, from your physical well-being to who you feel yourself to be and how you relate to the world. A bridge linking the trunk to the legs, the psoas is critical for balanced alignment, proper joint rotation, and full muscular range of motion. In yoga, the psoas plays an important role in every asana. In backbends, a released psoas allows the front of the thighs to lengthen and the leg to move independently from the pelvis. In standing poses and forward bends, the thighs can’t fully rotate outward unless the psoas releases. All yoga poses are enhanced by a released rather than shortened psoas. (When you reverse your orientation to gravity in inversions, however, the psoas must be toned as well as released to maintain proper spinal stability.)

Whether you suffer from ……….
