- Formative Psychology
- Founded by Stanley Keleman as a method to teach individuals to participate in their own growth process.
The most advanced form of body psychology, it emphasizes the use of voluntary effort to organize and disorganize patterns of behaviour. Through this process we learn how to use ourselves more effectively and to grow into our deepest and most authentic potential self.
Stanley Keleman has been practicing and developing somatic therapy for over thirty-five years and is a pioneer in the study of the body and its connection to the sexual, emotional, psychological and imaginative aspects of human experience.
Through his writings and practice, he has developed a methodology and conceptual framework for the life of the body.
