Embodiment: Because You’re Worth It

8th May 2015 @ 6:45 am - 9:30 pm

Presented by Michael Soth

In an age of narcissism epidemic, as demonstrated by celebrities all over the media, the body is used as a fashion accessory, as an advertisement for Self rather than an incarnation of the Self.
As Winnicott observed, for us to develop a sense of the “psyche indwelling in the soma”, we need a relational space where we do not feel pressure to adjust our gesture to Mummy’s expectation, whether that Mummy is personal, social, cultural or ‘therapeutic’

The longings for – and the therapeutic agendas towards – ‘embodiment’ create dilemmas for therapists of all kinds – psychological and complementary. How can we do justice to the valid intuitions of embodiment without exacerbating its postmodern contortions, confusions and misappropriations?

michaelsoth-167Michael Soth is an integral-relational Body Psychotherapist, trainer and supervisor (UKCP), with more than 25 years’ experience of practising and teaching from an integrative perspective. Drawing on concepts, values and ways of working from a broad-spectrum range of psychotherapeutic approaches across both psychoanalytic and humanistic traditions, he is interested in the therapeutic relationship as a body-mind process between two people who are both wounded and whole. His published writing, teaching hand-outs and conference presentations are available at www.integra-cpd.co.uk.
