European Psychotherapy 2016/2017: Embodiment in Psychotherapy
Embodiment refers to both the embedding of cognitive processes in brain circuitry and to the origin of these processes in an organism’s sensory-motor experience. Thus, action and perception are no longer interpreted in terms of the classic physical-mental dichotomy, but rather as closely interlinked (Fuchs, 2009). Embodiment research has shown impressively that the line between mind and body is not a one-way street. As a consequence the body has a strong influence on the mind. Can the body and it`s actions be used to help change the minds of our clients? The answer is yes. This special issue of European Psychotherapy is trying to explicate this more differently.
