Embodiment in Development and in the Therapeutic Relationship

Therapeutic process is not merely about resolving conflicts or symbolizing mental content but is more centrally about catalysing new capacities for relationship. Change occurs in moving through others and their moving through us. We are always consciously and non-consciously moving through each other’s experiences of self and world in embodied ways involving action, affect and intention. This embodied dance with special partners, who have become highly charged others for us, occurs largely outside of consciousness. The embodied moving through process in psychotherapy drives the long developmental trajectory involved in coming to know one’s own and others’ minds. In this process, capacities develop that will lead to greater and greater relational abilities to engage.

Case Presentation & Illustration

This case presentation will illustrate the processes of how one may be moved by and moving through another. It will provide an account of a 4-times weekly psychotherapy with Sam, a 25-year-old man who was a patient at a long-term inpatient facility for about 16 months. He sought admission after several near-lethal suicide attempts and reported feeling depressed and suicidal since early adolescence.

We will hear an overview of Sam’s history, outlining his development during the therapy, and explore process material from several sessions to illustrate this.
