Movement : our first langage Introduction to « Developmental Somatic Psychotherapy »

Movement is central to all experience and serves as fundamental supports for contacting. The movement repertoire that develops early in life is a language in itself, that conveys desires, intentions and emotions. Even though our movement patterns have changed over time, the foundation established early in life remain readily observable and available in our every day experience.

Developmental Somatic Psychotherapy is a relational and movement oriented approach to psychotherapy within a contemporary Gestalt therapy framework. It is a comprehensive system of phenomenological analysis that allows practitioners to diagnose and treat their clients using movement experiments.

A long training will set in after this introduction from August 2020 to December 2021.
