The NY Society for Bioenergetic Analysis is offering a four-session professional workshop series introducing psychotherapists to the principles and practices of Modern Bioenergetic Analysis.

Workshop 1: Body Stories
Body stories are a method for exploring and understanding our current relationship with ourselves as embodied people. To start the learning process in Bioenergetic Analysis we invite members of the group to present themselves to the group as they feel themselves and experience themselves in their bodies. This gives us a starting place for experiential learning. Each participant can connect the material of the workshops with her or his personal reality of embodied experience.

Workshop 2: Character Development
Bioenergetic Analysis systematizes the understanding of developmental processes in somatic expression. Practitioners study this as a way of organizing the information available from body posture and movement and its relation to personality structures. The developmental forces that shape somatopsychic organization are studied in a direct experiential way. This workshop will provide an overview and general introduction to the forms that can be observed and related to these developmental forces.

Workshop 3: Principles of Technique
Bioenergetic Analysts use the principles of energy dynamics, development, and character formation to create technical psychotherapeutic interventions. The aim of these interventions depends on the clinical moment. The addition of physical movement, breathing, and touch adds a dimension to the psychotherapeutic process. This workshop will provide a beginning encounter with and understanding of these principles and how they can be used to create meaningful therapeutic moments.

Workshop 4: Somatopsychic Processes in Relationship
Using the principles of Bioenergetic Analysis to understand the psychotherapeutic relationship broadens the dimensions available to the therapist. This workshop will examine the therapeutic process through the lens of this modality. The effects on transference and countertransference processes of using emotionally evocative physical interventions will be explored through demonstration and experiential work.
