Somatic Intelligence: The Neuroscience of Our Body-Mind Connection
Print this Page
An introduction to somatic psychology, this course presents a theoretical study of
the body-mind continuum. The importance of emotions, movement, perception, and the
nature of illness and healing is illustrated by recent scientific theories and findings.
By studying how our bodies and psyches weave together, we become aware of their interdependence
and can construct more effective therapeutic experiences-both for ourselves and for
others. Students learn the fundamental principles of the somatic psychology field
and explore, in depth, their relationship with advanced developmental psychology theories.
