ABOUT PAT OGDEN, PhD

Pat Ogden is a pioneer in somatic psychology and Founder of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute®, an internationally recognized school specializing in somatic–cognitive approaches for the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder and attachment disturbances.

She is co-founder of the Hakomi Institute, a clinician, consultant, international lecturer and trainer, and first author of Trauma and the Body: A Sensorimotor Approach to Psychotherapy.  Her second book, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy: Interventions for Trauma and Attachment (2015) is a practical guide to integrate Sensorimotor Psychotherapy® into the treatment of trauma and attachment issues.

The future of body-oriented therapy requires to me both mindful awareness of the body as well as integrating "top-down" approaches with "bottom-up" approaches.
