Training Professionals in Theory and Practice of Bioenergetics Analysis
DSBA is a non-profit organization and has been training counselors in the theory and practice of Bioenergetics Analysis since 1981.
Bioenergetic Analysis, often called bioenergetic therapy or simply bioenergetics, is a form of mind/body psychotherapy, founded by Alexander Lowen MD, that examines personality in terms of the body and its energetic processes. Respiration and metabolism energize our bodies. Movement and the production of sound are the ways in which we discharge energy. How much energy we have and how we utilize it determines our capacity to respond to life situations. The more we are able to utilize our energy, the more fully we experience and express our selves. This will bring us a greater sense of well-being, and we will experience the full joy and pleasure of living.Thus, the goal of bioenergetic therapy is to bring about the healthy integration of mind and body so that we can utilize our energy to discover that greater pleasure and joy in living. BIOENERGETIC QUOTE OF THE MONTH “Our bodies tell our stories: where we have been, what we have been encouraged to do and prevented from doing: what we have attended to or ignored in our daily lives: what we have learned directly through felt experience: and what we have acquired by way of education.” Leonard Pitt-psychologist
