Course Objectives:

Participants will be able to

  1. determine how a body-mind dissociation contributes to a formless identity
  2. track how the analytic relationship can create a structure for the patient's relationship with his body and activate sensorial perceptions.
  3. determine how one comes to place oneself in one's own body and claim one's own sensations.
