“The Journal’s mission is to support, promote and stimulate the exchange of ideas, scholarship and research within the field of body psychotherapy as well as to encourage an interdisciplinary exchange with related fields of clinical theory and practice.”
The International Body Psychotherapy Journal, published twice a year, in the spring and the fall, is a collaborative publication of two sister body psychotherapy organizations:
EABP – European Association for Body Psychotherapy and
USABP – United States Association for Body Psychotherapy
It is peer reviewed by members of both associations, with experts from related fields.
The Journal’s mission is to support, promote and stimulate the exchange of ideas, scholarship and research within the field of body psychotherapy as well as to encourage an interdisciplinary exchange with related fields of clinical theory and practice.
The joint publication evolved from the USABP Journal in response to tremendous growth in the field of body psychotherapy worldwide over the past ten years. As the field continues to expand, the Journal’s aim is to broaden its readers’ horizons by inviting submissions of original theory, qualitative and quantitative research, experiential data, and case studies, as well as comparative and secondary analysis and literature reviews from clinicians and researchers practicing in all healthcare fields across the globe.
