Body-oriented psychotherapy

CHAIRS: Lev Belogorodskiy (Moscow, Russia), Courtenay Young (Edinburgh, Scotland), Lan Peсjak (Ljubljana, Slovenia)

The common base of the Body-Oriented Psychotherapy methods, which will be represented at the section, is using therapist's contact with the body of the client during therapy session (body-mind therapy). This using is based on inseverable connection of the body and the spiritual-mental area (mind) idea. Herewith we suppose that client's unreacted emotions and traumatic memories are impressed in body as a result of the functioning of physiological defense mechanisms. The work with it's physical display helps to correct client's psychological problems on the basis of a feedback. It helps client to grasp and accept repressed aspects of personality, to integrate them as parts of his (her) deep essence (self).

CHAIRS: Vladimir Zavialov (Novosibirsk, Russia)

Dianalysis is the original system of integrative psychotherapy and counseling, based on phenomenology and dialectics of the symbol by A.F.Losev. In Dianalysis the idea of «ontological personalism» is developed, a look at the man whose existence is personal, absolutely individual and at the same time absolutely public. The personality of a man is considered to be the «carrier of problems», the personality can’t be the “source of problems”. It makes psychotherapy an interesting (problem solving) and noble (strengthening the personality) occupation, as dianalysis is not focused on detecting pathology or revealing hidden «complexes», «mental abnormalities», pathological character traits or «unconscious» motives of self-destruction. The main objective in dianalysis is to help people find inner peace, reconcile contradictions (deep in soul) and find their way to full self-realization.


CHAIRS: Pavel Lushin (Kyiv, Ukraine)

Ecofacilitation (eco-centered facilitation) as an innovative psychotherapeutic modality has several interpretations and relates to the experience of transition characterized by a high level of ambiguity. The modality was designed and introduced by professor Pavel Lushyn in late '90s as a response to the transformation processes within the so called post-Soviet and global space. Ecofacilitation as a process is irreversible, nonlinear and unpredictable. It is based on the ideas of a) the adequacy of the subject to the existing vital context and b) the proficiency\non-deficiency as having to do with a redundant capacity of the subject to grow and develop. The situation of psychological help is characterized by a high level of uncertainty and thus requires of the ecofacilitator the capacity to tolerate ambiguity and to navigate in a dynamic and constantly changing environment. «Psychologist — client» relationships is viewed as a problem-oriented group or social ecosystem, the emergence and functioning of which is driven by the need of a client to help herself. In ecofacilitation it is implied that the client is able to self-diagnose and to generate adequate «psychological immune responses”. By these she demonstrates her basic desire for self-development and self-help. The time of an “ecosession” is determined by a consensus of both the client and the psychologist. A regular ecosession is short-term. Experience of pathology and deficiency is viewed as transitional in the course of personal development.

The Emotion-Image Therapy method is widely used in psychotherapy, practical psychology and counseling.   In the Emotion-Image Therapy these disciplines are joined in one cohesion, and influence of the Emotion-Image Therapy (EIT) can be tracked in different spheres of psychological knowledge. EIT is supposed to assist a person to resolve his/her psychological problems, to find the basics of these problems, and to self-counsel, which would lead not only to self-recovery, but to improvement of general situation. That is why the second name of the therapy is called “Analytically Instrumental Therapy”. There are significant achievements in correction of multiple psychosomatic disorders: asthma, allergy, pains of different etiology, neurodermitis, mioma, oncology, etc. EIT proved its efficiency in working with phobias and panic attacks, anaclisis, with grieves and losses, in masculinity/femininity problems, with birth trauma, discrepancies of life scenario, and many other psychological issues being a stumbling point for traditional methods of psychotherapy. This branch of psychotherapy is constantly developing new methods and is giving the reasons of different unresolved problems.

CHAIRS: Albina Loktionova (Moscow, Russia)

Modern families become smaller, the child is deprived of the protection of the resources of the «big family», (protection and support of healthy o family members, in clear norms, values, enshrined traditions and holidays, which cover a lot). Now we more often find defizit, conflict or even traumatic child communicative and identification partnership, without any compensating. Parents unconsciously replace a child of the desired partner, or is transferred to the child's unconscious affective installation and feelings, which were to own parents. In the institutions of social support of the children often appear in the role of scapegoats, no one could see them for real. As a child psychotherapists, trained in the Russian-Austrian approach , work with modern Russian families to save the protected emotional space of the child , to help him to open the areas of emotional experience, which he had never experienced in his family, so that he has formed new neuron connections and new adjustment of emotional baggage the work of the section will be dedicated to this practical experience.

Activization of integrative processes, finding of professional identity and the general information field for the numerous directions and modalities — the main tendencies and the main way of development of a psychotherapy in the XXI century. It is in the last decade developed more and more philosophical, scientific, methodological and technological arguments for original integration of a professional psychotherapy within uniform scientific and practical discipline with the widest horizons of development. Taking into account features of development of psychotherapy on the former Soviet Union, the integrative psychotherapy is, probably, one of the most interesting and perspective options of development of a profession.

Mediation: past, present and future

CHAIRS: Rodolfo de Bernart (Florence, Italy), Nina Lavrova (Saint-Petersburg, Russia), Olga Ruban (Novosibirsk, Russia)

The previous stage of mediation’s formation is characterized by accumulation of rich arsenal of the methods promoting the sanction and prevention of conflicts in social, business and family relations.

At the present stage mediation approves the created methods and ads new, aspiring to meet changing of social situation. Uncertainty of the theoretical positions underlying practical methods, discrepancy of the approaches used by representatives of different schools, arrogant attempts to impose the opinions contrary to the established positions, undoubtedly, create obstacles to development mediation.

We should recognize that mediation is in a state of becoming, and the prospect of its development is caused by understanding of the principles determining the communications of the disputable sides and the decision-making in a problem situation. In such situation representatives of the disputable sides, lacking authentic data, manipulate the accessible information. They are compelled to overcome the false information provoking the erroneous decision. Therefore the development of new effective mediation’s technologies promoting success of negotiations, must be founded on achievements of the theory in studying the nature of the information and in research of the brain mechanisms providing acceptance of responsible vital decisions.

Psychoorganic analysis
Theoretical and practical aspects of psycho-organic method of analysis. PAST. PRESENT. FUTURE.

CHAIRS: Oxana Ascheulova (Moscow, Russia)

Psychoorganic analysis emerged in the second half of the twentieth century as eclectic direction. This is a psychodynamic direction, based on is the knowledge that the study of unconscious conflict leads to the release of energy, and as a result, the release of one or another symptom. This is a long-term method (the work lasts from six months to 3.4 years). The leading psychotherapeutic principle: processing of the conflict, which is the cause block in significant areas of the patient's life. This processing allows him to survive the energy of recovery and activity, which they may be used for resolution of the life problems. Analytical practice has shown that the unconscious has the property Two types of energy. When customers come in contact with past situations, sometimes they face the difficulty expressing feelings restrained before: sadness, anger, joy, and etc. (those that they did not have the ability or the right to express those situations). Manifested in this vital energy is called residual energy. With the help of specially designed tools in this area created an opportunity for the client to meet any of your feelings and express them.

Another type of energy is a consequent energy. Consequent energy poses potential to personality: wants, needs, not yet implemented possible. Identifying consequent energy — the fundamental orientation of the POA. Therefore, the analysis is not only what happened in the past, but also that may be in the future, that is in its infancy. Emphasis given area and work with the needs — basic physiological needs for love, care, self-realization, aesthetic needs, etc.

However, opposing efforts undertaken at the level of public and private psychotherapy structures cover only a small percentage of the population in need of assistance and are not efficient enough. In this connection there was the need to provide psychological care to the population involving television, radio and Internet communications. This line of therapy is an important instrument for the prevention and treatment of social epidemics.

Religion-oriented psychotherapy

CHAIRS: Adrian Rhodes (England), Sergey Belorusov (Moscow, Russia)

For most of humanity’s existence, the mystery of what it is to be a person, was largely conceptualised in terms of religion and spirituality. Indeed, religious texts and teachings carry profound insights about what lies deep in the heart and minds of human beings. And for most of that time, the meaning of an individual’s existence could only be understood against humanity as a whole — a humanity which is part of a living and developing story of existence, behind which was a creator.

With the Age of Enlightenment in the 17th century, came a passion to understand humanity — and human beings — as themselves, through reason and science, rather than against a background of tradition, religion and revelation. We are infinitely richer for this movement. But the fervour of reason has too often led to the rejection and deep distrust of faith, religion and spirituality.

In this section of the Congress, we explore how psychotherapy and religion & spirituality, can work together, to plumb the depths of what it means to be human, about what humanity’s purposes might be.

Resourse psychotherapy

Resource psychotherapy is a new psychotherapeutic model created in the space of integration of clinical psychology, family therapy, perinatal psychology. Perinatal psychology is the first chapter of this model, which formed the basis for understanding the deep mechanisms of unconscious links between the child and the parents, beginning from the prenatal period. The next level of resource psychotherapy describes the family system as a living system, and therefore the classical methods of handling it are significantly transformed. It is important that this model was developed being based on fundamental researches of Russian scientists such as Pavlov, Sechenov, Ukhtomskiy. Field of application of resource therapy is very broad: the resources of personality, family resources, resources of any organizational system. Experts who are trained on this model apply it in medicine, counseling, organizational and administrative work. At the workshop there will be presented the basic principles of resource-based approach of professor Kovalenko and the main distinctive characteristics and methodological tools that form the basis of the resource psychotherapy. The author will show the types of work under this approach: resource art therapy, voice therapy, resource placement. The basic differences between resource placement and Helenger’s systematic placement will also be shown.

The archetype theater, or archetypical analyser, is a polymodal methodology, used for short-term system psychotherapy and business consulting. It is also used in couching, self-couching and trainings. The methodology is based on three principles:

— An idea of Jacob Levi Moreno that personality is a set of roles. In order to solve a problem, one should have a capability to play the right role in given circumstances.

— An idea of Carl Gustav Jung that there are as many archetypes as typical working collisions. The main value here is effective socialization. According to this idea, there are the following archetypical roles: Prince/Princess, Warrior (male/female), King/Queen, Magician or Sage (male/female), Fool (male/female).

— Clinical psychotherapy that deals with inborn peculiarities of the body and character, which define behavioral patterns of the personality.

The archetype theater deals with functional phycho-diagnostics, conflict resolution, creation of to-be positive model by rebuilding the order in the system of archetypical (or bio-psycho-socio-spiritual) roles of a person on the edge of personal and collective psychical functioning. Coaching is being done in so-call “Houses of archetypes”. The main goal of the methodology is to successfully socialize talented people with high emotional sensitiveness.
