Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

A Therapeutic Anatomy: An Historical and Theoretical Review of Body-Psychotherapy

Asaf Rolef Ben-Shahar

Body-psychotherapy is a fascinating field, which began with the work of Wilhelm Reich, a student of Freud, during the first decades of the twentieth century. Body-psychotherapy is a generic name describing a variety of psychotherapeutic methods where somatic processes are a focal point for the clinician's curiosity. The field includes various theoretical and clinical orientations, as well as varied therapeutic tools. This paper reviews the historical and theoretical background of body-psychotherapy and offers some clinical vignettes to demonstrate how the body could be integrated within psychotherapy. The paper further presents contemporary developments in relational body-psychotherapy, where the body ceases being seen an object and becomes a pulsating dialogue between bodies-in-relation, revealing themselves to one another.
