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. Link here.
