Body Psychology

Also known as somatic psychology, body psychology examines the link between the physical body and thoughts, emotions and memory. Modalities that incorporate body psychology often explore the link between physical tension and negative emotions, self-discovery through movement and using the senses to achieve wellness.

Continuing education courses focusing on body psychology cover a wide range of topics from mindfulness yoga to the psychological impact of massage. One of the more prominent modalities is Somatic Experiencing (SE), a therapeutic mindfulness technique designed to help victims of trauma see the link between sensations and the lingering impact of their experiences. Because body psychology courses teach new methods of assessment and thinking, most courses will be moderate to lengthy in time commitments.
