Body Memory in Creative Arts Therapies

Body Memory is a major source of joy or pain in human beings. It is mostly implicit and one of the therapeutic factors of CATs. To access it brings embodied knowledge and wisdom to the therapy process.

The presentation will contain an analysis of body memory from philosophical, psychological, neuroscientific and clinical applied perspectives, case examples, and implications for the work of creative arts therapists.
