They track the clients associations, fantasies, and signs of psychic conflict, distress, and defenses.

Yet while the majority of therapists are trained to notice the appearance and even the movements of the clients body, thoughtful engagement with the clients embodied experience has remained peripheral to traditional therapeutic interventions. Trauma and the Body is a detailed review of research in neuroscience, trauma, dissociation, and attachment theory that points to the need for an integrative mind-body approach to trauma. The premise of this book is that, by adding body-oriented interventions to their repertoire, traditionally trained therapists can increase the depth and efficacy of their clinical work.

Sensorimotor psychotherapy is an approach that builds on traditional psychotherapeutic understanding but includes the body as central in the therapeutic field of awareness, using observational skills, theories, and interventions not usually practiced in psychodynamic psychotherapy.

By synthesizing bottom-up and top down interventions, the authors combine the best of both worlds to help chronically traumatized clients find resolution and meaning in their lives and develop a new, somatically integrated sense of self.Topics addressed include: Cognitive, emotional, andsensorimotor dimensions of information processing •modulating arousal • dyadic regulation and the body• the orienting response • defensive subsystems • adaptationand action systems • treatment principles •skills for working with the body in present time • developingsomatic resources for stabilization • processing
