Introduction to Functional Analysis - Mas de la Capelle | France

Functional Analysis Body Psychotherapy


Dates: July 10 to 14, 2023

In the Beginning: A New Paradigm Working with Early Disturbance and Trauma

In this five day workshop we will explore the psychosomatic matrix of early disturbance and trauma: how and where they are embodied in the body/mind and how to work safely below disturbance and trauma.

One theme will be the role of connective tissue in the structuring of development and defense. Structure is behavior. Change the structure and self experience and behavior are altered.

A second theme will be using the schizoid process as an example of how connective tissue functioning translates into the creation of somatic and psychic structures and how to work safely with early disturbance and trauma without having to work on them or through them.

There will be theoretical and conceptual presentations, experiential exercises as well as the teaching and practicing of the physical touch technique of Points&Positions used in Functional Analysis.

Atelier de cinq jours - Mas de la Capelle | France

Analyse fonctionnelle Psychothérapie corporelle Un nouveau paradigme pour travailler avec les perturbations et les traumatismes précoces


Du 10 au 14 Julliet, 2023

Mas De La Capelle, Calvisson, France

Dans cet atelier de cinq jours, nous explorerons la matrice psychosomatique des perturbations et traumatismes précoces : comment et où ils s'incarnent dans le corps/esprit et comment travailler en toute sécurité sous les perturbations et les traumatismes.

L'un des thèmes abordés sera le rôle du tissu conjonctif dans la structuration du développement et de la défense. La structure est le comportement. Si l'on change la structure, l'expérience de soi et le comportement sont modifiés.

Un deuxième thème sera l'utilisation du processus schizoïde comme exemple de la façon dont le fonctionnement du tissu conjonctif se traduit par la création de structures somatiques et psychiques et comment travailler en toute sécurité avec les perturbations et les traumatismes précoces sans avoir à travailler sur eux ou à travers eux.

Il y aura des présentations théoriques et conceptuelles, des exercices expérientiels ainsi que l'enseignement et la pratique de la technique de toucher physique des Points&Positions utilisée dans l'Analyse Fonctionnelle.
