Bioenergetic Analysis was created by Alexander Lowen, M.D. (New York) in the 1950s. It is based on the work of Wilhelm Reich, a disciple and contemporary of Sigmund Freud.
In this webinar, I will first describe the theoretical and practical Lowenian foundations of Bioenergetic Analysis: the energetic dynamics of human functioning, then its characterological organization in response to unresolved childhood conflicts and traumas.
Then I will present the current evolution of Bioenergetic Analysis, enlightened by contemporary research in neurobiology, by work on trauma, by contributions from related theoretical and therapeutic fields, such as attachment theory.
- Understand the specificity of Bioenergetic Analysis as a mind-body approach.
