Biosynthesis is an in-depth Relational Somatic Psychotherapy and Depth Psychology Oriented Psychotherapy which forges a link between somatic or body existence, psychological existence and spiritual essence. This is an experiential training, which offers the therapist and client an opportunity to experience greater relational depth. Development of Observation, Formulation Skills and Therapeutic Presence for the therapist will be greatly enhanced.
Biosynthesis represents a new approach in Somatic Psychotherapy. Founder of Biosynthesis, Dr. David Boadella is one of the pioneers and leading representatives of work with the Body in Psychotherapy. Dr. David Boadella (founder of Biosynthesis Body Psychotherapy) is an International Expert in the field of Human Trauma and Mental Health Recovery. He brought a new paradigm into Body Psychotherapy, ten years before Trauma was recognised by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, emphasizing the importance of contact in the here and now, to provide enough containment for traumatized clients to give boundaries to the over-flooding feelings. This paradigm has been adopted by Peter Levine, Babette Rothschild and Pat Ogden, all of whom have published extensively on Body Psychotherapy and Trauma, including many articles in Energy & Character: the international journal of Biosynthesis.
Many aspects of Biosynthesis theories and Structure Work have close parallels in recent Neuroscience findings about mirror neurons, empathy and self-regulation of the autonomic nervous system. His method has been developed with his wife Silvia Specht Boadella over the last 40 years and currently continues to expand its range of practical applications.
Biosynthesis is a pre-and perinatal psychology, a somatic psychotherapy and a transpersonal psychology that regards the human being in the interaction and integration of his multidimensional aspects: his body, emotions, sexuality, beliefs, desires, intentionality, needs, dreams, histories, family, relationships, spirituality etc.
In Brussels in October 1998, Biosynthesis was the first Body Psychotherapy method to receive scientific recognition from the European Association for Psychotherapy (EAP).
The mission of the Irish Institute of Biosynthesis is to create space and integration for the establishment of this method in the Professional and Therapeutic environment of Psychotherapists in Ireland.
International Senior Trainers in Biosynthesis are invited to facilitate this Specialist Training in Biosynthesis. Each of these Trainers are highly qualified and specialized in their profession.
