There are numerous references to the body in Jung's work although Jungians have yet to include a systemized approach for the inclusion of somatic-centered processes in analysis. Recent findings in somatic explorations have opened important directions in infant research, attachment theory, and in the understanding of trauma.
Exploring this nonverbal communication through a framework of body process interventions can reference the patient's, as well as our, own inner world. Body-centered interventions can be valuable and contribute to analytic work by bringing stored and unarticulated feelings into expression. Bringing awareness to this material often supplies a vitality and intelligence to the analytic experience that can lead to more integrated states of consciousness. Laura will present case material that demonstrates the importance and possibility of including the body in analytic work.
