    Case studies form a significant aspect of formal research methodology, as well as a fascinating insight in why people come into therapy and what happens behind the 'closed door' of tthe therapy room of both psychotherapy and - in this particular instance - Body Psychotherapy.
    After an introduction to the volume by the EABP Science & Research Committee (SRC); an introduction to Body Psychotherapy; and an introduction to Body Psychotherapy Case Studies by Courtenay Young; then there is an historic case study from Stanley Keleman - a well-known and very respected American Body Psychotherapist - followed by three case studies on the theme of Embodiment, that were presented at the 2016 EABP Congress' Scientific Symposium, from Sladjana Djordjevic, Christina Bader-Johansson and Courtenay Young.  These were followed by two more Case Studies from members of the EABP-SRC, Herbert Grassman and Zoe Schillat and then three short case studies from a German Body Psychotherapist, Bernhard Schlage.
     There are then six more case studies: one from an Israeli Body Psychotherapist, Galit Serebrenick-Hai, followed by two case studies froma UK Body Psychotherapist, Russell Rose.  There is a case study from Jacqueline Carleton, past-editor of the International Body Psychotherapy Journal; a fascinating case study about a client with Dissociative Identity Disorder from Laura Hope Steckler, with some pictures and inputs from the client.  Finally, we have a detailed account of the first session - a case study - from Ulrich Sollman with transcultural comments from Wentian Li.

    This edited volume contains a number of previously published articles all "About Relational Body Psychotherapy".  This is a generic aspect of Body Psychotherapy focussing on the relationship between client and therapist and what is happening in each of the bodies, and how this affects the other.
    After an introduction from the Editor, the volume contains substantive articles by Nancy Eichorn, Robert Hilton, Nick Totton & Alison Priestman, Michael Soth, Angela King, Julianne Appel-Opper and a series of 4 articles by Asaf Rolef Ben Shahar.
    There are then further articles on different articles on different aspects of Relational Body Psychotherapy from Julianne Appel-Opper, Angela King, and a case-history with a highly dissociative client by Asaf Rolef Ben Shahar and Kate Wood.
    The Nick Totton & Alison Priestman article is a new (written especially for this volume), and the other articles have all been revised, edited and updated. Link here.

    This book, edited by Courtenay Young, contains a number of previously published articles about the Science of Body Psychotherapy.
    After an Introduction, there is an article by Roz Carroll, an eminent Body Psychotherapist with an active interest in Neuroscience.  Christine Caldwell and Rae Johnson follow with a 'Body Psychotherapy Research 101' article.
    Then comes a series of four full-length articles on the Science of Body Psychotherapy by Courtenay Young.  These take the reader on an extended journey, in depth and in detail, and with frank reservations about some of the mistakes made on the way, up to where we are now, and possibly what to look out for in the future.  Another article on the differentiation between Art, Craft and Science in Psychotherapy and Body Psychotherapy follows.
    This is followed by a research article from Christa Ventling, showing how efficacy research can be done.   She was awarded the USABP Prize for Outstanding Research in Body Psychotherapy.
    Finally, there is a seminal article on The State of the Art in Research by Frank Röhricht, a psychiatrist and academic with a number of research papers to his name, who is also a Body Psychotherapist.
    Altogether these give an excellent perspective on the Science of Body Psychotherapy: link here.

    This edited book contains a number of previously published articles that go to form 'The Historical Basis of Body Psychotherapy'. 
    There are short extracts of longer articles from Barbara Goodrich-Dunn & Elliot Gould, Ulfried Geuter, Nick Totton and a synopsis of a longer seminar article by David Boadella.  Full articles on the history of Body Psychotherapy are published from Bernd Eiden, David Boadella (on the work of Pierre Janet); and then a series of seven full-length articles on the history and development of Body Psychotherapy by Courtenay Young.  There is another historical essay - a currently unpublished article on the relationship between Wilhelm Reich and Else Lindenberg - also by Courtenay Young. And a concluding article, summarising the present political situation with respect to psychotherapy (and Body Psychotherapy), especially with reference to Europe: link here.

    Trauma Healing in the Yoga Zone:
    A guide for mental health professionals, yoga therapists and teachers


    by Joann LUTZ, MSW, LICSW, C-IAYT

    In this book, Joann Lutz presents her original model of ‘Nervous-System Informed, Trauma-Sensitive Yoga’ (NITYA). The model, which is a synthesis of polyvagal theory, classic yoga, somatic psychotherapy, and neuroscience research, is organized around the eight stages of classic yoga practice.

    The book is important for three reasons:  Mainstream psychotherapy has, until recently, ignored the body – a major element in the healing of trauma and other emotional and mental dysregulations. It has also omitted the wisdom to be found in the world’s great spiritual traditions, perpetuating an artificial separation between religion/spirituality and science. The field is also currently being enriched by empirical data from the field of neuropsychology that describes brain function. The mental health field is ready to embrace a holistic model, and this book can play a significant role in that transformation. 

    The book includes scripts of the major practices, for ease in introducing them into the therapy session, and an assessment form, to guide the practitioner in treatment planning. Joann offers professional trainings, based on the book, which help practitioners integrate this material into their work.

    Here are some reviews: 

    Stephen Porges: In Trauma Healing in the Yoga Zone, Joann Lutz transforms yoga practices into a neurobiological-based therapeutic strategy that facilitates and optimizes health through enhanced autonomic regulation. This model, which she labels as Nervous System-Informed Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (NITYA), is the product of an insightful consilience of ancient traditions with contemporary neuroscience. Embracing the model will lead to deeper understanding of the wisdom embedded in yoga and the powerful neurophysiological impact it may have on rehabilitating mental and physical health.

    Shirley Telles: In Trauma Healing in the Yoga Zone, Joann Lutz combines ancient wisdom from yoga with a scientifically informed therapeutic approach for safe and effective trauma resolution. Compulsory reading for anyone interested in healing trauma through neuroscience, blended with compassion! 

    Shirley Telles MBBS PhD, Director, Patanjali Research Foundation, Haridwar, India


    Joann has been studying and teaching yoga for more than 40 years, and is Certified in EMDR, psychosynthesis, and Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy. She has been training mental health professionals internationally for 10 years, and offers a certification program in this approach. She has presented at the last two USABP conferences, and lists her trainings on the USABP website. Her website is www.yogainpsychotherapy.com.

    by Pat Ogden (Author, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute), Janina Fisher (Author)

    A book for clinicians and clients to use together that explains key concepts of body psychotherapy.

    The body’s intelligence is largely an untapped resource in psychotherapy, yet the story told by the “somatic narrative”-- gesture, posture, prosody, facial expressions, eye gaze, and movement -- is arguably more significant than the story told by the words. The language of the body communicates implicit meanings and reveals the legacy of trauma and of early or forgotten dynamics with attachment figures. To omit the body as a target of therapeutic action is an unfortunate oversight that deprives clients of a vital avenue of self-knowledge and change.

    Written for therapists and clients to explore together in therapy, this book is a practical guide to the language of the body. It begins with a section that orients therapists and clients to the volume and how to use it, followed by an overview of the role of the brain and the use of mindfulness. The last three sections are organized according to a phase approach to therapy, focusing first on developing personal resources, particularly somatic ones; second on utilizing a bottom-up, somatic approach to memory; and third on exploring the impact of attachment on procedural learning, emotional biases, and cognitive distortions. Each chapter is accompanied by a guide to help therapists apply the chapter’s teachings in clinical practice and by worksheets to help clients integrate the material on a personal level.

    The concepts, interventions, and worksheets introduced in this book are designed as an adjunct to, and in support of, other methods of treatment rather than as a stand-alone treatment or manualized approach. By drawing on the therapeutic relationship and adjusting interventions to the particular needs of each client, thoughtful attention to what is being spoken beneath the words through the body can heighten the intimacy of the therapist/client journey and help change take place more easily in the hidden recesses of the self.

    Worksheets are included in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy: Interventions for Trauma and Attachment and accompany many of the chapters. These same worksheets are available to you as a member and subscriber to the USABP.  A gift from Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute.

    Reviews

    Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is a landmark book in the history of body psychotherapy and effectively provides the bridge between traditional psychotherapy and body-oriented therapies. In this discipline-changing volume, Pat Ogden brilliantly decodes the crucial role that the body plays in regulating physiological, behavioral, and mental states.
    – Stephen Porges, PhD

    Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is a must-read for psychoanalysts interested in nonverbal communication, dissociation, and trauma. This sophisticated book provides a remarkable integration of theory and clinical practice, informed by research in trauma, attachment, infancy, and neurobiology, as well as by psychoanalysis.
    – Beatrice Beebe, PhD


    Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP) actively incorporates awareness of the body into clinical practice, targeting the habits of physical action, autonomic dysregulation, and posture. By addressing the physical, as well as the psychological effects of adverse experience on mind and body, SP supports a deep and unified approach to healing. Go beyond theories and gain practical ways to open a new dimension for effective therapy...in person or online!

    The Mind-Body Stress Reset
    By Rebekkah LaDyne MS, SEP, and Author

    If you are like almost all the therapists I know, including myself, you are finding that your clients need more support now than nearly any time previously.  Most of my colleagues are in high demand, seeing their own personal maximum of clients, and feeling the pressures of client’s increased stress levels compounded by their own increased stress levels.  We could use some help! Our clients could use some additional help too.  And as we commonly only see our clients for one or possibly two hours each week, having some tools to offer them between sessions can be deeply helpful for client and practitioner alike.  

     

    I wrote The Mind-Body Stress Reset well before the pandemic began, but uncannily the first copies hit the shelves—and websites—the month many State’s shutdowns began.  I believe that any book is a labor of love, and I undertook this labor so our current and prospective clients would have an easy-to-read manual for building a toolkit to use between sessions, or after treatment concluded.  The Mind-Body Stress Reset, Somatic Practices to Reduce Overwhelm and Increase Well-Being, is full of self-help skills backed by solid scientific research, and it’s written in a way that keeps it lighthearted and even playful—even extreme stress can be aided by some humor.  I wrote it because I needed such a manual during my own period of crisis.  The book was born out of my very real experiences of very real anxiety and extreme stress, and the tools within it are still my go-tos today.

     

    I believed that others who found themselves suddenly struggling more than they ever had before (as I had) would find my book helpful, comforting even.   I knew it was needed, but I couldn’t have known how needed these self-help skills were going to be when all of our worlds shifted.  And here we are, living inside that shift.  If you could use some help supporting your clients during this extraordinary time, I hope you’ll consider reading The Mind-Body Stress Reset yourself and teaching some of the skills within it in your own voice, or recommending your clients read it themselves and incorporate its tools into their week when they are not able to be with you.  Either approach could significantly lessen their stress, and by extension, yours.

     

    I hope you are finding some ease during these challenging times, and most importantly, receiving support yourself.  I sincerely believe that we have to fill our own vessel if we want to help others fill theirs.

     

    **The Mind-Body Stress Reset, Somatic Practices to Reduce Overwhelm and Increase Well-Being is out in paperback now, and the audiobook is due to be released in April 2021.

    The Neurobiology of Health, Healing, and Human Connection
    by Michael Changaris, Psy.D.
    ISBN 9780940795068

    Touch is the basis of our sensory world. Touch is our first way of relating with ourselves, others, and our environment. Providing physical and emotional communication at a level far deeper then words, touch is a vital aspect of experiencing meaning, purpose, and joy throughout our lives.

    Touch has an important role in our capacity for self-regulation, impacting how effectively children learn to socialize, pay attention, and even engage in classroom activities. How do we experience healthy, supportive contact with others, recognize and avoid unhealthy contact?

    The author provides outstanding documentation of research clearly indicating how vital touch is to human health and healing. Shared experiences, illustrative charts, tables for clinical interventions, and practical homework exercises offer compassionate guidance for implementing healthy, supportive touch into many personal and professional situations. This book is a vital addition to our understanding of health and what it means to be human.This book belongs in the library of every practitioner, teacher, social worker, couple, parent, prospective parent, and family – anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of the profound effects of touch on health and well-being.

    Michael Changaris, Psy.D. is the founder of the International Institute of Touch Training and Research (ITTR). As a clinical psychologist he specializes in the biological basis of behavior stress physiology, psychobiology of neurodegenerative disorders and the neurobiology of post-traumatic stress.

    Transformation through Love, Sex and Neurobiology

    by Stella Resnick, PhD

    This book presents an integrative, growth-oriented approach to therapy with couples that demonstrates the dynamic interplay between partners’ emotional issues and their sexual difficulties. It offers a model for relational and sexual enhancement that focuses as much on partners’ present, nonverbal body-to-body communications as on their words. 

    Dr. Stella Resnick draws on research from interpersonal neurobiology, sexology, positive psychology, and Gestalt therapy, and shares a rich assortment of therapy vignettes to demonstrate the transformative power of pleasure.

    The therapeutic process is explored in four related spectrums: the Problem-Transformation Spectrum, the Attachment-Sexuality Spectrum, the Pain-Pleasure Spectrum, and the Cognitive-Somatic-Experiential-Behavioral-Spectrum. Chapters show how a focus on body-to-body intimacy can heal emotional wounds from the past and encourage greater presence, empathy, authenticity, playfulness, and sexual pleasure between intimate partners. A series of process-oriented exercises and a Family Closeness Profile for therapists to use in their practice is included.

     
    Body-to-Body Intimacy will enable couples therapists and sex therapists to expand their practices and enrich their clients’ sexual and relational dynamics.

    This book also contains valuable information that will be appreciated by anyone interested in a greater understanding of a growth-oriented therapeutic process for couples and the quality of life that can be achieved together through a deeply loving and sexually fulfilling intimate love relationship.

    REVIEWS

    “In this groundbreaking volume Stella Resnick applies recent advances in neurobiology and decades of clinical experience to offer an overarching integration of couples therapy and sex therapy.  Using evocative clinical vignettes, she eloquently describes various right brain implicit change mechanisms operating in both close emotional relationships and intimate sexuality. I highly recommend this remarkable feat of clinical scholarship to all mental health workers.”

    —Allan N. Schore, PhD, author of The Science of the Art of Psychotherapy, Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine


    “Dr. Stella Resnick has been a powerful and highly respected thought leader in the fields that address therapeutic approaches to sexual issues for many decades. Her science based work is innovative, but also firmly grounded in the best information scholars and researchers have certified as worthy.  This book will be a must read guide for therapists, researchers and educators who wish to understand and apply the emerging interdisciplinary discoveries of how our minds and bodies can enrich our sexuality. ”

    —Pepper Schwartz, PhD, Past President, the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexualities; Sociology Professor, The University of Washington, Co-author: 50 Great Myths of Human Sexuality


    “Stella Resnick has written an invaluable and insightful book that addresses the important issues of the real relationship and that the mind, brain and body are one. Her well-written approach is positive, and the book highly detailed and well researched. She has a positive and healing vision which successfully integrates couples therapy and sex therapy. Dr. Resnick has brought back the concept of “corrective emotional experience” and effectively weaves the current thinking about attachment theory and interpersonal neurobiology into couples and sex therapy.  I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in relationships."

    —Walter E. Brackelmanns, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Director, Couples and Sex Therapy Training Program, David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA


    “Filled with the integrative wisdom of a seasoned relationships therapist, Stella Resnick’s new book weaves together interpersonal neurobiology, somatic awareness of the mind-body connection, and attachment dynamics within the couple. Dr. Resnick’s emphasis on present-centered experiential processes highlights ways that therapists can access our own body-based wisdom to help couples drop beneath their words to recognize and learn from the deeper meanings in their non-verbal, implicit communications.”

    —Bonnie Goldstein, PhD, Lifespan Psychological Center Director, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute, Teaching Faculty


    “Stella Resnick, author of the classic The Pleasure Zone, has done it again! She has created a compelling case for the need to integrate mind and body, past and present, the individual and the relational in sex and couples therapies. Recommended strongly for novices and the experienced therapist. ”

    —Peggy J. Kleinplatz, PhD. Professor and Director of Sex and Couples Therapy, University of Ottawa; Editor, New Directions in Sex Therapy: Innovations and Alternatives.


    "In this new book, Stella Resnick, a highly regarded expert on human sexuality and relationships, uses a vast range of research to create her own model of dealing with sexual concerns and issues. She integrates the Gestalt approach with those of Maslow, Reich, and even Freud. But what is most interesting is her attention to the right brain, describing the large, often unacknowledged role of the sensory, emotional, and kinesthetic in all relationships. At the end, it is her ability to add her wisdom, compassion, and joy to this endeavor, which makes this book so important for all therapists and practitioners."

    —Joseph Melnick, PhD, Founding editor of Gestalt Review, Co-Chair of the Cape Cod Training Program, Gestalt International Study Center


    "Resnick’s work on couple’s sex therapy is arguably one of the most important contributions to body psychotherapy for couples in recent years.  It leverages the experiential wisdom of her Gestalt orientation that is endowed by contemporary neurobiology.  This book will help foster embodied intimacy through a contemporary relational approach, and invites us all to experience a greater, more playful and creative form of love.” 

    —Christopher Walling PsyD, MBA, President, United States Association for Body Psychotherapy


    "With a laser focus on the body/mind connection, Resnick’s Embodied Relational Sex Therapy model is an integrated system directing therapists to work with the couple as a living, breathing entity, instead of a problem to be solved. Incorporating cutting-edge neuroscience with Resnick’s years of experience and wisdom, this multi-faceted approach situates dyadic regulation where it belongs – between the couple—to create deep empathy and change. This book is a “must read” for the modern couple/sex therapist! " 

    —Alexandra Katehakis, PhD, founder of Center for Healthy Sex, author of Mirror of Intimacy: Daily Meditations on Emotional and Erotic Intelligence


    "Finally, a professional book has arrived that details the primacy of sexual issues to emotional intimacy! Stella Resnick’s latest book, Body-to-Body Intimacy, provides couples and sex therapists with everything they need to know about sex but either have been afraid to ask or not known where to get answers. Just as the body is inseparable from the mind, so too is couples therapy inseparable from sex therapy." 

    —Terry Marks-Tarlow, PhD, author of Clinical Intuition in Psychotherapy; Awakening Clinical Intuition; Truly Mindful Coloring; and Psyche’s Veil


    "This is an important book. Dr. Resnick brings a wealth of knowledge of individual and couples therapy, neuroscience and developmental theory, and brings all of these to her work with couples experiencing difficulties in their sexual relating. The most important aspect of her work is that she does not separate out couples therapy and sex therapy, seeing them as inextricably linked." 

    —Peter Phillipson, MSc, author of The Emergent Self: An Existential-Gestalt Approach, Gestalt Institute of Manchester, UK


    "This brilliant book by Dr. Stella Resnick is a “must read” for all who are interested in the intersection of sex therapy with couple counseling. Dr. Resnick uses pieces of her personal story and illuminating clinical examples to illustrate her holistic approach to relational healing—an approach which combines the latest findings in the neurobiology of attachment, with positive psychology, sex therapy, and Gestalt therapy. " 

    —Elinor Greenberg, PhD, CGP, Gestalt Therapy Institute of New York trainer, author of Borderline, Narcissistic, and Schizoid Adaptations: The Pursuit of Love, Admiration, and Safety


    "In this well-written, engrossing, and trailblazing book, Dr. Stella Resnick integrates a wealth of data from diverse fields of science into her decades of experience as a therapist to expand upon our understanding of the transformative power of pleasure in achieving sensual intimacy. It is destined to become a classic in the study of sexual and relational dynamics and in the practice of couples and sex therapy across multiple disciplines." 

    —Carol Cassell PhD, Former health scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and author of Put Passion First: Why Sexual Chemistry is the Key to Lasting Love


    "Stella Resnick is a dedicated genius of collaborative exploration. Her new book, Body-to-Body Intimacy, creatively integrates neuroscience, Gestalt psychology, life experience, couples and sex therapy. It instructs those seeking relationship to resist the trigger, ignore the knee jerk, live for moments of presence. Dr. Resnick shows how to ride the wave of right brain to right brain communion. She is a pleasure activist who convinces us pleasure can make us better." 

    —Susan E. Stiritz, MBA, PhD, MSW, President-elect, American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists, (AASECT), Associate Professor of Practice Chair, The Brown School Washington University in St. Louis


    "Stella Resnick has broken new ground with her alchemical integration of the seminal ingredients that will help our clients to repair the damage from their sexual wounds and seize the opportunity for sexual healing and pleasure fulfillment. Professionals of all backgrounds will find this a readable, thought-provoking, evidence-steeped paradigm shift, worthy of acclaim." 

    —Patti Britton, PhD, Co-Author of Designing and Leading a Successful SAR and Co-Founder of SexCoachU.com


    "Stella Resnick presents an integrated, comprehensive, and neurobiologically informed fresh approach to therapy, distilling a brilliant career as a Gestalt couples and sex therapist. Finally, we  can stop separating the emotional, sexual, and relational when we practice therapy – transferring people from one provider to another. This is the book the field has been waiting for. Every therapist needs to read this book!" 

    —Tina Schermer Sellers, PhD, author of Sex, God and the Conservative Church: Erasing Shame from Sexual Intimacy


    "Sexuality is ubiquitous but it’s astounding how little we know about the intertwining of relational intimacy and sexual expression. Shame, insufficient personal exploration, and inadequate training in this vital realm of treatment restrict the therapist in the quest to help others. Dr. Resnick’s personal wisdom journey through the deepest realms of the heart, the spirit, the psyche and human sexuality make this a riveting book." 

    —Susan Warren Warshow, LCSW, Founder, DEFT Institute


    "Stella Resnick’s new book, Body-to-Body Intimacy gives therapists a powerful theoretical, and skills training model; one that will positively enhance working with clients in couples and sex therapy. Her work deserves serious time for consideration, digestion, discussion, and application. This is a remarkably important work and a reflection of a lifetime journey of discovery." 

    —Melvyn S. Kimura Bucholtz, MA., Invited Lecturer on Psychology, Harvard University Medical School; Boston University School of Biobehavioral Medicine


    "Dr. Resnick’s latest book, Body-to-Body Intimacy, delineates her approach to couples and sex therapy. She skillfully utilizes research from interpersonal neurobiology, sexology, positive psychology, and Gestalt therapy, to demonstrate how pleasure and body-to-body intimacy can lead to a closer and more dynamic relationship.  Body-to-Body Intimacy will be a valuable resource for any therapist engaging in couples and sex therapy.  " 

    —Herb Samuels, PhD., Past President, The Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality (SSSS).
