Salvatore Martini

Salvatore Martini is a psychologist and a Jungian analyst. He is a member of the Italian Association of Analytical Psychology (AIPA) with which he collaborates in the context of its teaching activities and of the International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP) for which he also supervises trainee analysts. Salvatore is a member of the Analytical Consultation Service of the Aipa and is active on the editorial board of the peer-reviewed journal Psicobiettivo.

In addition, he teaches a course on analytical psychology organized by the Analytic Gestalt Institute (IGA).

Salvatore collaborated for 10 years in several mental health services, concentring on therapeutic-rehabilitative “integrated theatre” groups involving psychiatric patients and professional performers. This experience enhanced his understanding of the role of the body as an effective vehicle  for expressing emotions and for unconscious communications, leading him to focus increasingly on the dynamics of embodied countertransference in his therapeutic practice. His paper “Embodying analysis. The body and the therapeutic process” won the Fordham Prize in 2017.

Salvatore lives and works in Rome, where he has a private practice.
