Handbuch cover small 150Die Integration impliziter und expliziter Verarbeitungsweisen im Psychotherapieprozess, insbesondere die Einbeziehung des Körpers, steht im Zentrum der aktuellen Debatte. Der vorliegende Sammelband enthält dazu eine Auswahl von Beiträgen aus der Bioenergetischen Analyse, die von klassischen Arbeiten der 80er Jahre (nach Lowen) bis hin zu aktuellen Theoriebeiträgen und Fallstudien reichen. Die neueren Artikel knüpfen an die Konzepte der relationalen Psychoanalyse, die Ergebnisse der Emotions-, Säuglings- und Bindungsforschung sowie der Neurobiologie an. Themenschwerpunkte des Buches sind das Selbst in Beziehung zu anderen, Sexualität und Liebe, Trauma, Psychosomatik sowie die konzeptuelle Diskussion des therapeutischen Geschehens. Studien zur Wirksamkeit der Bioenergetischen Analyse und der Körperpsychotherapie im Allgemeinen runden das Spektrum ab.

Dieses Buch richtet sich an körperpsychotherapeutische, analytische und tiefenpsychologische Kolleginnen und Kollegen und kommt dem zunehmenden Interesse nach einer Integration des Körpers in die Psychotherapie entgegen.

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.

I show the very serious researches of Reich in biological and physical issues to find out structure and shape of the energy which controls biological and psychic processes of life and human beings.  You can read about the history of how Reich discovered 'orgon energy'.  Do these concepts have any importance in our discussions of today?

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.

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.

In: Psychotherapeut 45: p.230-236 (2000)

This report is a retrospective investigation of the efficacy of bioenergetic therapies given to adults in a private practice setting and also a study of the stability of the therapeutic result achieved. In the spring of 1997 a total of 16 bioenergetic therapists (6 of them medical doctors and 10 psychologists), all CBTs of the Swiss Society of Bioenergetic Therapists (SGBAT), provided upon request a number of data on 319 patients who had terminated their therapies after a minimum of 20 sessions 6 months to 6 years earlier. The data included among others age, sex, hours of therapy, main character structure according to Lowen and ICD-10 diagnosis. A self-evaluating questionnaire was then constructed, to be answered anonymously, and sent to these 319 patients in late summer 1997; 290 of them could be reached and 149 (49%) answered and returned the questionnaire. It contained questions related to the psychic and physical condition, to interpersonal and psychosomatic problems, and to the effect of body work on physical consciousness, cognitive insights and changes of the quality of life.
