Description : The conscious experience of the bodily self is a cornerstone of human nature, which allows us to delineate the boundaries between the surrounding environment and us. A plethora of clinical and experimental investigations has clearly demonstrated that bodily self-consciousness draws on different neuro-cognitive mechanisms with distinct anatomo-functional underpinnings. Among these, the sense of body ownership (i.e., my body belongs to me), and the sense of agency (i.e., I am the author of my actions) have attracted increasing interest in recent years. The former seems to be strongly rooted in afferent sensory signals, whereas the latter appears to be rooted in efferent motor signals and/or the monitoring of their sensory consequences. Despite the consensus that the interplay between body ownership and the sense of agency contribute to the omnipresent conscious experience of the bodily self, the character and the form of this relationship remain unclear. Though research into the mechanisms underlying ownership (e.g., bodily illusions) or on agency (e.g., intentional binding) is blooming, very few studies have aimed to investigate both these processes at the same time. Therefore, many questions remain unresolved: for example, how do the experiences of ownership and agency influence each other? What are the anatomo-functional substrates of their interplay, and how does damage to these structures affect the experience of either ownership or agency (or both) in clinical populations? What is the specific role of efferent and afferent signals, and how may these be complimented by other inputs like emotional or interoceptive cues? And going beyond the mechanisms and anatomo-functional substrates, are there rational relations between the representations underlying body ownership and agency so that ownership can be a seen as a condition on intentional action and a sense of agency? Elucidating the complex relationship between ownership and agency is a crucial step in our understanding of bodily self-consciousness, and may help us to better understand the variety of neurological/psychiatric disorders affecting the perception of one’s own body and its movements. These insights can contribute to the development of future prosthetic devices or virtual-reality applications, which may in turn allow for new approaches in neuroscience, rehabilitative medicine, and therapeutic interventions.

Description : Praise for the first volume: `It is very valuable to have [this collection of articles] all together in one place...a rich repository of insights and experiences for all the somatic disciplines. It is a wonderful collection of articles.' - Somatics 1999/2000 This second volume on Authentic Movement - a new discipline aiding the creative process in choreography, writing, theatre performance, dance, graphic and expressive arts, as well as spirituality - is an engaging and dynamic collection of scholarly essays, personal stories, practical suggestions and resources. It reflects cutting edge work on creative expression, meditative discipline and psychotherapeutic endeavour. Part I comprises five chapters written by the most prominent Authentic Movement practitioners and teachers and introducing the foundations and principles of Authentic Movement. In Part II, the contributors return to the source of Authentic Movement - the psychotherapeutic setting - and provide an in-depth examination of the personal processes in the therapeutic relationship and the potential of Authentic Movement to facilitate personal growth and change. Part III traces the development of Authentic Movement as a spiritual path and as interface with other spiritual practices. Part IV provides an overview of new developments in Authentic Movement, Part V offers inspiring personal accounts and Part VI provides guidelines drawn from practice as well as tools and resources. These latter chapters sow the seeds for a new understanding and directions for the developments of Authentic Movement. This authoritative text is indispensable for practitioners of Authentic Movement, students and teachers working in the field of dance therapy, art therapists, all creative arts therapists and body psychoanalysts.

Description : Depersonalization is a dissociative disorder, causing alteration in the perception or experience of the self and a detachment from reality. This is a fascinating and clinically relevant phenomenon neglected within psychiatry. Far from being a rare condition, it can be as prevalent as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder and frequently occurs in association with other neuropsychiatric conditions. This book is a review of depersonalization, dealing with the subject from a wide range of perspectives and covering historical, conceptual, clinical, trans-cultural, pharmacological and neurobiological factors. It discusses recent neuroimaging studies providing fresh insights into the condition and opening up new opportunities to manage the symptoms with pharmacologic and psychotherapeutic interventions. It will be relevant to psychiatrists and clinical psychologists, as well as primary care practitioners, neurologists and psychiatric nurses.
