David Brower Conference Center

Berkeley CA

This conference brings together two dynamic clinician-authors at the heart of the contemporary discourse on the place of the body and somatic experience in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. The program will combine conceptual elements with discourse, clinical and supervisory examples, demonstrations of training and supervision techniques, and a good deal of experiential work drawn from the speakers many decades as clinicians and trainers. This diversely formatted program will appeal to psychodynamic and analytic clinicians, those involved in the training and supervision of psychotherapists, and somatic psychotherapists  who want to experience the clinical and training styles of these internationally known body psychotherapy innovators. William Cornell MA is a body psychotherapist, author and international trainer integrating  relational psychoanalysis and somatic psychotherapy paradigms. His most recent book Somatic Experience in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy (2015) is among the latest volumes in the Relational Perspective Book Series. He is the author of Handbook of Body Psychotherapy and Somatic Psychology chapters on “Entering the Erotic Field: Sexuality in Body-Centered Psychotherapy” and “Entering the Relational Field in  Body Psychotherapy”. Bill has been a central figure in the ongoing dialogue between psychodynamic relational perspectives, two-body models of therapy, and the body psychotherapy community. Jon Sletvold,  Psy.D is the author of The Embodied Analyst – From Freud and Reich to Relationality, winner of the 2015 Gradiva Award from the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis.
