13th EABP Congress in Body Psychotherapy
THE BODY IN THE WORLD, THE WORLD IN THE BODY
14 – 17 September 2012, Cambridge, England
Body psychotherapy has traditionally been concerned with what happens in one person and in one body. In this congress, we want to go beyond the individual and explore what happens if we have two bodies together, or a room full of bodies, or a whole world full of bodies. We also want to explore the perennial image of the world – human and natural – as one body. Our central premise is that to truly inhabit our bodies is an invaluable resource with implications for us as individuals, for psychotherapeutic practice, and for the future of the planet. The programme is conceived as a journey from infancy through to the processes that affect bonding between individuals in adulthood, and beyond that to the bonds that can hold groups and societies of individuals together or apart, and finally to the relationship between us human beings and our natural world, the planet Earth.
