Jag använder mig mestadels av Sensorimotor Psychotherapy-metoden som är baserat på biopsykoneuro-vetenskap, traumatologi och utvecklingspsykologi.
Här är information om denna metod på engelska:
”Traditional psychotherapy addresses the cognitive and emotional elements of trauma but lacks techniques that work directly with the physiological elements, despite the fact that trauma profoundly affects the body and that so many symptoms of traumatized individuals are somatically driven, including affect intolerance, autonomic reactivity, vegetative depressive symptoms, impulsivity, and anxiety. All of these clinical issues are inaccessible or difficult to treat in a talking therapy context without a way to include the bodily symptoms in treatment.
Sensorimotor Psychotherapy builds upon traditional psychotherapeutic techniques and principles, but approaches the body as central in the therapeutic field of awareness, and includes observational skills, theories, and interventions not usually practiced in psychodynamic psychotherapy.
Theoretical principles and treatment approaches from both the mental health and body psychotherapy traditions are integrated in this approach. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy draws from body-oriented psychotherapy methodology pioneered by Ron Kurtz (Kurtz, 1990), as a foundation for therapeutic skills and incorporates theory and technique from psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, neuroscience, and the theories of attachment and dissociation
Sensorimotor Psychotherapy identifies two general kinds of interrelated psychological issues: developmental and traumatic. Developmental issues result from disturbed early attachment relationships that lead to limiting beliefs about oneself and the world. Post-traumatic stress disorder results from overwhelming experience that remains unintegrated. Early attachment disturbances can lead to a wide variety of adult relational problems, especially when combined with unresolved trauma.”
