Fifteen Years of Bonding Psychotherapy in Argentina
Silvia García – Ramon Vega (Argentina)
We intend to share our experience of how we constructed the NIP group identity in Argentina. In Brasil and then Buenos Aires since the year 1995 …. with Ramon Vega, and in San Louis, a city 800 km distant from Buenos Aires, since 2003.
Since then in these two cities, besides accompanying a significant number of people applying for our intervention, we are training therapists in Bonding Psychotherapy.
In addition to the common variables in any Bonding group in our history there are some facts that we want to share which have allowed to incorporate useful resources to work on the fulfillment of basic needs.
