The Present Dilemma of Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy at Risk
AbstractThis paper intends to be a warning for us, psychotherapists, to be carefully attuned to the huge changes presented by the cultural mutation we are going through and to get ready to adjust to the new era. It describes some of the directions where the current cultural forces are leading to, turning the human being into less reflexive and more tuned to the outside, taken by appearance and living poor and superficial relationships – with self and others. Then, it gives some suggestions towards ways to recover a deeper connection with one’s real essence. Yet it focuses on and values Bioenergetics as being a great path to get there and claims that the momentum for bioenergetic therapists is to give more emphasis to help people go towards the inside in compensation for the tremendous strength of the external reality pulling us to the outside. Finally, it brings the description of two body exercises as suggestions to work energetically with the body in order to achieve that new place.
