The Field of Body Psychotherapy continues to grow. Discovering new ways to bring healing and transformation to clients and society.
Our Award events honor the many positive contributing milestones in our history. And from time to time it is in special order that we take time to honor a few individuals in particular for all that they represent in our industry.
For Outstanding Research Advancing the Profession of Body Psychotherapy and Outstanding Research Advancing the Profession of Body Psychotherapy by a Student the USABP offers two research awards at each biennial conference.
