Bioenergetic Analysis, the Clinical journal of the IIBA is published annually and is distributed to all members of the international organization. Its purpose is to further elaborate theoretical and scientific concepts and to make links to enhance communication and broaden our connection with other schools of therapy, as well as with academic psychology, medicine, and other psychosomatic schools of thought. The journal publishes reports on empirical research, theoretical papers, and case studies. Some local IIBA societies produce journals in their native languages. This journal has been published in English since 1985, making it the oldest journal for the IIBA.
The present issue contains three original papers by authors from three different countries. A paper examining grounding using new research on the primary triad of mother, father and infant is written by J. Clauer. A research paper explores the affect of Bioenergetic therapy on a client’s perception of God. It is provided by J. Allard. Robert Lewis writes a moving paper exploring the poetry of the body in the psychotherapy dyad. In a creative writing section there are two sets of poetry. Again, the abstracts of the original papers are all translated into six languages.
