In this course you will explore the concepts of body experience and body image as structures of human self-experience. You will learn how these structures, which are inherent to the human being and can be experienced psychologically, provide insight into bodily maturation and, derived from this, into bodily interactions and emotional states. In addition, you will learn the connection of body experience to thoughts, fantasies, and desires.

You will learn how body experience/body image is formed, based upon the structural level of the personality, interaction experienced during one’s lifetime, and through preverbal and verbal experience.

For the body image anamnesis you will be introduced to the system KBL («Körperbild Liste», cf. Arbeitskreis OPD Manual für Therapieplanung und Diagnostik, 2. Auflagen Huber, Bern).
