Sample text

The human body is not something that exists on its own, in isolation. As we shall see later, it has an innate, organismic apparatus for forming relationship with others – it needs others for its well-being in very fundamental ways. Conversely, we form relationships through and as our bodies, using structures which have evolved for that precise purpose. ) Psychotherapy as a whole has always, in many of its traditions, focused on the therapeutic relationship as a way of illuminating and affecting the client’s style of relating to self and others.

Brothers puts it succinctly: ‘Emotion cannot be defined with reference to the mind or body of only one animal or person’ (1997: 123). Hence arises the new field of ‘social neuroscience’ (Cacioppo et al. 1996): the study of bodies in relationship, of how our capacity for and style of relating to others is created and mediated through neurological systems – and, at the same time, how our neurology is created and mediated through relationship. This offers support not only for specific approaches to body psychotherapy, but also for its very existence, as a practice of embodied relating.
