About

The ISBP is the official organization for Bonding Psychotherapy worldwide. As a professional organization, the ISBP is dedicated to the promotion and development of Bonding Psychotherapy, and to its advancement in the areas of practice, theory, research and training.

Bonding Psychotherapy was developed in the 1960s and 70s by the American Psychiatrist and Psychoanalyst Dr. Daniel Casriel (d. 1983).

Bonding is the process of becoming emotionally open and physically close to another person. Exercises with other group members help to experience and fulfill the need for bonding. During these exercises intense emotions often surface that are linked to past painful experiences. With the described method, trust in others is increased and negative attitudes concerning oneself in relation to others become more positive.

These are emotionally corrective experiences. An overview of the research results is given. For our colleagues, there is a slew of articles and research papers about Bonding Psychotherapy (Publications), as well as a description of requirements for training (Training).
