Contemporary Body Psychotherapy: The Chiron Approach looks at the ground-breaking work of the London based Chiron Centre for Body Psychotherapy, a training centre recognised worldwide by professionals in the field. The book brings together Chiron trainers and therapists, describing how their integrative approach has enabled cutting-edge thinking.

Divided into two parts, the book deals with topics including:

the roots and the development of the Chiron approachself-regulation - an evolving concept at the heart of body psychotherapythe evolution of an embodied, integral and relational approach to psychotherapymoving towards an integrative model of trauma therapy

At a time when the psychotherapeutic profession has turned its interest towards the body and its intrinsic psychological dimension, Contemporary Body Psychotherapy: The Chiron Approach offers a timely and valuable contribution to the literature. It will provide essential reading for those practicing or involved with body psychotherapy, offering a new synthesis with the psychoanalytic tradition, as well as appealing to a wider audience of mental health professionals and academics with an interest in the area.

"Essential reading for anyone seriously interested in body psychotherapy." - Nick Totton, body psychotherapy trainer and author

"I found Contemporary Body Psychotherapy a rewarding book to read, reminding me, as it did, of my own origins as a body psychotherapist and suggesting some directions I could have followed, but didn't, in my subsequent career. It will also be useful to anyone interested in body psychotherapy and will be interesting to anyone involved in psychotherapy training and development." - Geoff Lamb, Self and Society, 36(4), Jan-Feb, 2009

"Overall, this book is a delightful resource for Gestalt therapists, supervisors and trainers. It is a fine celebration of the work of Chiron over twenty years and brings together disparate voices into a coherent and meaningful whole. Linda Hartley deserves credit for achieving this through her succinct and evocative summaries of each section...This book invites the reader into energetic engagement with the theory and practice of body psychotherapy, and it is impossible not to be touched by each of the authors in some way." - Belinda Harris, British Gestalt Journal, Vol. 18, No. 2, December 2009
