Seattle, WA


In early to mid 1930’s psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich introduced the idea that character structure and emotional defenses are not just psychic in nature but rather involved the whole organism – one’s whole being.  In doing so he planted the seeds that evolved into today’s developing somatic psychotherapies, with contemporary Reichian therapy being its most direct offshoot. In this workshop, through lecture/discussion, clinical demonstration and case presentation, we will explore the field of somatic psychotherapy as a whole and the theory and technique of contemporary Reichian therapy in particular, and address the process via which somatic psychotherapies help access emotions and promote character change.
