USABP Pioneer Award
Since its inception in 1998, the USABP has made it a priority to honor the people who have made somatic psychology, body psychotherapy, and body/mind practices what they are today: acknowledging our history is extremely important in our identity as an organization. Consistent with the conference theme of 2012 (Pioneers of the Past-The Wave of the Future), we want to be more inclusive in honoring the pioneers who laid the foundations for the past and future construction of our body of knowledge and skill.
