New book from W.W. Norton:
Hakomi Mindfulness-Centered Somatic Psychotherapy:
A Comprehensive Guide to Theory and Practice
Edited by Halko Weiss, Ph.D., Greg Johanson, Ph.D., and Lorena Monda, L.P.C.C.
This updated book on Hakomi Therapy is co-authored by international Hakomi faculty, including a new, previously unpublished chapter from Hakomi Founder Ron Kurtz.
The book provides an in-depth exploration of all aspects of the Hakomi Method for professionals and graduate students in psychotherapy, counseling, clinical social work, and related fields, including practices that are immediately applicable, and inspiration for further study. It will also be of interest to people interested in the applications of mindfulness, the body-mind interface, healing attachment issues and developmental trauma, and effective pathways for profound individual growth and change.
Included are chapters on Hakomi’s unique use of mindfulness in the therapy session and its integration with somatic and verbal techniques to create a powerful experiential process for the client. Hakomi provides a direct, yet safe access route to the unconscious “blueprints” and implicit memories that guide our lives without our knowledge. Once conscious, these are available for neural re-wiring, memory re-consolidation, and transformation.
