Sensorimotor Psychotherapy a body based talking therapy developed by Pat Ogden, PhD is highly effective treatment approach for individuals suffering from PTSD, dissociation, emotional reactivity as well as the relational issues that occur as a result of missing developmental experiences. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy® builds upon traditional psychotherapeutic techniques and principles, but approaches the body as central in the therapeutic field of awareness, and includes observational skills, theories, and interventions not usually practiced in psychodynamic psychotherapy. Theoretical principles and treatment approaches from both the mental health and body psychotherapy traditions are integrated in this approach. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy® also draws from body-oriented psychotherapy methodology pioneered by Ron Kurtz (Kurtz, 1990), as a foundation for therapeutic skills and incorporates theory and technique from psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, neuroscience, and the theories of attachment and dissociation.
