The psychotherapeutic encounter is a meeting between embodied psyches, bodies present in the room, speaking with each another, impacting and impacted by one another; bodies who are waiting for us to listen to them and dialogue with them - and speak on their behalf. The field of body psychotherapy has been exploring this embodied dialogue since the 1930s. The book "Touching the Relational Edge" delves into the history of body-psychotherapy, offering theoretical and clinical conceptualisations and insights and is rich with clinical vignettes and applicable exercise, all aimed to provide the reader with a theoretical and experiential understanding of the place of the body in psychotherapy - allowing the reader a dynamic, curious and affective engagement.The book opens a window into the cutting-edge world of relational body-psychotherapy, offering the reader a personal and professional journey into the depth of therapeutic relationship as seen through anatomical and relational eyes.

While the body has received significant attention in psychoanalysis and psychotherapy in the last couple of decades, this still focused primarily on the body of pathology - the body as speaking for (or on behalf of) the mind. Here, leading psychoanalysts and psychotherapists join with experts whose field is the body to examine and celebrate generative, creative, vital, and irreducible aspects of our embodiment.The book is divided into seven themes, each including a chapter by a therapist and another by a specialist pondering various aspects of the body. Fashion journalists speak with a relational psychotherapist about beauty, a chef discusses sensuality with a couple therapist, and a Rabbi and a psychoanalyst speak of divinity and the body. This is a book aimed at igniting our imagination and faith in the possibility of living a full embodied life, and of integrating such practices within therapeutic and psychoanalytic work.

In this book the editors have solicited the unique and unmediated voices of fifteen leading psychotherapists, who share intimate and revealing stories from their clinic of professional incidents that shook the therapeutic bond and left a scar in both parties. The contributors courageously agreed to revisit the cases that still burn inside of them, attempting to conceptualise these and give them words, and to demonstrate the mutual vulnerability inherent within the psychoanalytic and psychotherapeutic endeavour. While failure is recognised as developmentally necessary and a cornerstone in the formation and maintenance of attachment relationships, stories of therapeutic failures are seldom told in our profession. Can we fully recognise our failures without shaming ourselves and others? Can we bear it while attending to our narcissistic wounds and rescue fantasy? This book addresses all of these concerns, while examining what relational theory and practice has to contribute to the understanding of, and working with, therapeutic failure.

This monograph brings together the presentations from the nineteenth John Bowlby Memorial Conference in 2012, organised by The Bowlby Centre. The aim of this was to explore the growing role of the body in relational psychotherapy over the last decade, and to bring us up to date in thinking about the relationship between attachment, the body and trauma. Questions addressed included: How do we anchor the new understandings we are gaining within the framework of attachment? How might the integration of these ideas about the body change what we do in the consulting room? What impact might this have on the therapy relationship? Can we maintain and respect the place of a secure, attuned attachment between therapist and client, and its healing potential, at the centre of our therapeutic work? Pat Ogden’s paper “Wisdom of the Body, Lost and Found” was the conference centrepiece and there are contributions from leading clinicians including Roz Carroll, Mark Linington, and Orit Badouk Epstein. Each in their different ways have brought their clinical experiences to life in their presentations and demonstrated this leading edge work in relation to the themes of the body and touch with clients including those so often regarded as “unsuitable for therapy”, namely those who have a physical or learning disability or those who have survived extreme trauma through the painful means of psychic protection resulting in dissociative states of mind. Other contributors include Phil Mollon on “Attachment and Energy Psychology” and Nick Totton on “Embodiment and the Social Bond”.
