The socializing service, has as its main objective to make possible to the most destituted people from the society have access to psychotherapy in its several applications: children, adolescent and adults
in groups as well as individually.

Nowadays, this kind of service, basically, well-founded in the Bioenergetic Analysis, enlarges itself into a focus upon the prevention and manteinance of the biopsychosocial health.

The work is related to pregnant women, companies, and schools, by means of the use of Bioenergetics exercises that help people to deal in a healthier way with the stresses of today’s world and to keep themselves groundings, centered and alive.

In the groups, we give focus to the integration, and, through Bioenergetics we work with the competitions, fights to get the power and other phenomena that occur during the process of living together, having in mind a fluent working group, coherent and using not much energy.

Today, we have about 10 psychotherapists tending from 60 to 80 people.

This is my first effort to describe the concept of Bioenergetic Analysis with ideas and concepts of modern physics, biology and physiology.  This seems being necessary for Bioenergetic Analysis uses terms of these sciences to describe bodily processes and shows how to modify them.  But how they are used is not corresponding to their scientific definition.  It is not described what is really going on in the body itself.  I focused on the term of 'energy'.  I try to show how this point of view is able to develop further the bioenergetic concept.  With some ideas of energy from subatomatic level perhaps you can explain with physical and bodily categories the meaing of 'relationship', 'intuition', 'nonverbal communication'.   Processes of transference and countertransference will get a 'physical' body.   The unity of body, soul and mind will find a new base by the term of 'energy'.   The energetic processes on the subatomatic level shows structures similar to those of the mental and psychic ones.

Body psychotherapy shows that psychotherapy altogether is involved with the human organism and its processes.  We only know about psychic phenomenas by its expression of the human body either by talking or by the body itself.   Even comunication with the soul is only possible by processing of the body.

Psychotherapeutic processes are always energetic processes for moder physics says that there is nothing in our universe but energy.  Besides you can show that the human processes of life are energetic processes of regulation.  So, mental and psychic phenomenas would be energetic processes too.

68% of the female therapists, members of the Institute for Bioenergetic Analysis in 1977, answered a mail questionnaire concerning the effects of Bioenergetic therapy on themselves and their clients.  Although 87% disagreed with one or more of the theories of Bioenergetic Analysis (and were therefore not "true believers"), between 70-89% reported increased capacity for self assertion, greater energy, improved breathing, increased capacity to experience pleasure, improved physical health and self esteem, improvement in sexual functioning and capacity to love and unification of sexual and tender feelings in relationships, diminished chronic muscle tension and greater ability to cope with depression.

Bioenergetic Analysis as developed by Alexander Lowen can be briefly characterized as a psychotherapeutical method comprising psychoanalytic, body-related energetical, and social systemic aspects.  A post treatment study involving 309 finished outpatient therapies shows that bioenergetic analytical therapy may be applied to a wide range of mental and psychosomatic disorders.  In respect of the effects of the treatment clients gave high change ratings in a standardized change questionnaire (compared with other therapy studies using the same questionnaire.)   The therapists evaluate the results as most positive for some neurotic and for psychosomatic disorders; but also in the case of other mental disorders remarkable improvements are found.  Bioenergetic analysis is however not a short-term therapy.

The consequences of trauma in early childhood are often severe, extending into adulthood where neurotic or even psychotic personality disorders can result. Separation from a parent at birth or thereafter and sexual and/or physical abuse in young children are the traumata most often seen. But the emotional unavailability of the person the child relates to or over-stimulation of a baby can be equally disastrous. Treatment of children at an early age therefore becomes a prime issue in order to prevent more serious damage later on.

Presented here for the first time is an application of bioenergetic interventions modified to suit young children. The collection of contributions by experienced body-oriented psychotherapists, all in private practice, deal with pregnancy, birth and young childhood and provide insight into preventive as well as healing aspects.

HollandeWhat relationships can be established between attachment patterns (attachment theory) and structure of personality (Lowen's characterology)? What differences can be established between Self and Character? How to differentiate intersubjective relationship and analytic relationship in the therapeutic process? Then, what about transference / counter-transference ?
