In Bonding Psychotherapy in Argentina we put the accent on working with the emotions, the body, movement, and voice. It is developed in a contour of great emotional contention, giving the protagonist role to expression through movement and voice liberation. In the Argentine Association for Bonding Psychotherapy the therapeutic work is organized in the following way:
- Weekly groups
- Individual sessions
- Weekly classes of movement and bodywork
- NIP groups (generally there are 8 to 10 NIP groups a year)
The weekly work on body movement – groups/classes/ individual sessions intensifies and consolidates the access to emotions and the emotional opening reached during the NIP groups. The weekly work also contributes to sustain love and pleasure, reinforcing functional neural webs activated with the cognitive re-structuring which happens during the NIP groups. This activation permits to explore these representations more deeply each time, so as to be slowly transformed, easing the deactivation of the evitation system and activating the proximity system.
With the emotional expression in the movement classes, the rational understanding of the symptom or conflict is completed with emotional understanding. This is the key for attitude transformation and a consistent correlation between body-emotion-thought-behavior.
In the NIP groups we work with a group dispositive in which, during a living together week end workshop, lasting two and a half days, people recognize and express their PRIMARY emotions (fear, pain, anger, love and pleasure). Being able to change dysfunctional schema.
We work on necessary structural abilities to reach emotional health. In this way the behavior which permits the representations of secure attachment and bonding is achieved.
