Ostrolenk speaks with Nancy Eichhorn, PhD, teacher and editor of Somatic Psychotherapy Today. They discuss what is meant by somatic psychotherapy and how practitioners use the movements and functions of the human body to holistically understand how humans experience themselves. Eichhorn details her educational and personal experience that led her to focus on somatic psychotherapy and several key educational opportunities for others to study this practice. Ostrolenk and Eichhorn also discuss the importance of touch and how U.S. culture unfortunately rejects the practice of human touch. Eichhorn further discusses their magazine and its objective of facilitating discourse on topics within this field.
