Synopsis

Synopsis

The Body in Recovery challenges the separation of verbal and bodywork therapies by integrating Reich's concepts of character armoring and bioenergetic exercises with psychodynamic theory. Addressed to therapists, this culminating work of twenty years of psychotherapy will also fascinate those embarking on the journey of therapy for themselves, and anyone seeking to understand the process of shaping an identity.
Praise

Praise

"The Body in Recovery is immensely readable—it shows tremendous respect for the person."
-David Boadella, author of Reich: The Evolution of His Work

"Conger combines the work of Reich and bioenergetics with the insights of Melanie Klein, Winicott, Kohut, and especially Jung. This is a sensitive, practical book, useful for both patients and therapists."
-J. Marvin Speigelman, Jungian analyst

"The Body in Recovery is a landmark work. It presents a clear description of Reichian and bioenergetic concepts and techniques with psychoanalytic and Jungian theory. Conger's work shows a compassionate respect, even reverence, for the patient and the task of the therapist."
-Myron Sharaf, author of Fury on Earth: A Biography of Wilhelm Reich
