INTERNATIONAL BODY PSYCHOTHERAPY JOURNAL
Published by the European and United States Associations for Body Psychotherapy and Somatic Psychology
The Art and Science of Somatic Praxis
Published twice a year, the International Body Psychotherapy Journal (IBPJ) is the voice of somatic psychology and body psychotherapy around the world.
The Journal is the collaborative publication of two sister organizations:
The combined USABP and EABP membership spans over twenty-nine countries, reaching beyond the United States and Europe to Canada, South America, the Middle East, Asia, and Australia.
We see the Journal as a focal point for our field—an important tool for cross-pollination, bringing together colleagues from around the world, and creating a foundation from which the vital contributions of somatic and body-inclusive therapies can take their place on the world stage.
The Journal supports the growing scientific recognition of somatic psychology and body psychotherapy. We cover the spectrum of academic developments, evolving clinical practices, and interdisciplinary viewpoints within the field of somatic psychology and body psychotherapy. We promote, and stimulate the exchange of ideas, scholarship, and research, and encourage an interdisciplinary exchange with related fields of clinical theory and practice.

We will be thrilled to hear from you!
The IBPJ Editorial Team feels that now, more than ever, our field must bring forward body-centered methodologies that foster diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging.
Validated by neuroscience, the field of somatic psychology continues to gain recognition. As we evolve and our influence expands, we invite submissions of original theory, qualitative and quantitative research, experiential data, and case studies, as well as comparative and secondary analysis from clinicians and researchers who practice in somatic and body-inclusive fields.
Support, stimulate, and promote the growth of
somatic ideas, scholarship and research.
