Reviews and Endorsements

‘Nick Totton’s capacity to move fluidly and daringly between theoretical paradigms and therapeutic modalities, the psychological and the social/political, the spoken and the implicit, is a beautiful illustration of the art and practice of Embodied Relating. This is a seminal book relevant not only to body psychotherapists but also to psychotherapists from all modalities who are interested in an updated, inclusive yet differentiated dialogue with other contemporary thinking and research within and beyond the field of psychotherapy. A generous and thought-provoking offering.’
–– Shoshi Asheri, Psychotherapist, Supervisor and a Teacher of Embodied Intersubjectivity

‘With this book the tradition of body psychotherapy is finally coming of age, in terms of its philosophical underpinnings and the formulation of a non-dualistic paradigm, in a way that is relevant for all psychotherapy. It represents the culmination of Totton’s prolific writing over the decades as well as his therapeutic practice and teaching. If Freud was alive today, instead of the “talking cure”, I believe he would be championing the “relating cure”. This book deserves to be read by every therapy student and practitioner.’
–– Michael Soth, Integral-relational Body Psychotherapist, Supervisor and Trainer
