Therapy Toronto Psychotherapy Definitions
- Stanley Keleman, a gifted and innovative psychotherapist, is the founder of Formative Psychology, a direct and dynamic methodology working with habitual, reactive patterns of the body.
Formative Psychology differs from Freudian-based therapies in recognizing that the primary drive of the body is growth and that survival drives are secondary.
As Keleman describes it, his somatic emotional education uses individual experience, emotions, states of feeling, action patterns, insights and images to discover how life has been shaped and what is seeking to emerge.
