Abstract:
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.

Abstract:
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.

Abstract:

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 ?
