The United States Association for Body Psychotherapy (USABP) describes Body Psychotherapy in the following way:

"Body-oriented or body-centered psychotherapy is an expansive, emerging, multi-faceted field that affirms the inseparability of mind, body, and spirit. It draws from somatic psychology which sees the mind revealed not only in relational styles, dreams, and cognitions, but in neurophysiology, posture, gestures, movement, bodily tensions and more. It explores the therapeutic possibilities of somatic roads to the unconscious and healing while honoring the wisdom of general psychology and psychotherapy through expanding and contributing to it."

For more information about Body Psychotherapy and related modalities of Somatic Counseling, you may visit the website for the USABP (www.usabp.org), as well as explore the resources of the European Association of Body Psychotherapy (www.eabp.org) and the publications of both organizations for current research and topics in Body Psychotherapy today.
