Abstract

"When worlds collide - The process of embodied experience" by Rod Aungier


As humans, we have undergone constant evolution in body, mind and culture. As therapists, we broadly accept psychoanalytic, behavioural and humanistic/existential paradigms as the three forces operating currently within a psychotherapeutic approach. Nestling within the hu-manistic/existential approach is the idea of embodiment and embodied approaches. I present a short overview of the (process-oriented) embodied approach and the principles it has adopt-ed since it emerged on the scene. An extract from an embodied session is used to illustrate the approach and highlight the elements involved in the interaction. In particular, the idea of field theory is discussed as an important element within the embodied context.
