EP00 Invited Address 8a - Where You Feel the Body From the Inside, There Is A Door - Eugene Gendlin, Ph.D.
The edge where almost all therapy and thought get stuck is a physical bodily place hardly anyone knows to go into.
EP00 Invited Address 8b - Bioenergetic Analysis: A Body-Mind Therapy - Alexander Lowen, M.D.
Since the person is his body, it is possible to read the history of the individual from the pattern of chronic muscular tension in his body. These chronic tensions limit the individual's ability to respond in a healthy way to the stresses of life. Bioenergetics provides a technique for reducing these tensions.
EP00 Invited Address 9a - Facilitating Brain Growth with Ericksonian Psychotherapy? - Ernest Rossi, Ph.D.
Current research on neurogenesis (growth of new brain cells) indicates that novelty, environmental enrichment and physical exercise can facilitate new growth in the adult human brain. How can we optimize our Ericksonian approaches to support the psychobiological growth process?
EP00 Invited Address 9b - Interaction: Bridging the Human and Non-Human Worlds - James Hillman, Ph.D.
Besides the patient's past history and present intrapsychic complaints, besides his/her interpersonal relations, the patient lives in an aesthetic, spiritual, cultural, economic and environmental world of intimate things, physical places and invisible atmospheres. To focus mainly upon personal subjectivity to the neglect of the non-human factors falsifies the patient's daily actuality and endangers therapy with artificiality. Therapy must therefore bridge into the world.
