Welcome to the NEW
EABP Virtual Congress Website for 2021
EABP Congresses offer warm-hearted, inspiring, and joyful events where members of our Body Psychotherapy and Somatic Psychology communities can share experiences, knowledge, thoughts, and ideas with other members, and with professionals from allied health professions, beyond EABP.
Given numerous challenges and struggles of the past couple of years for the whole world-wide community, the EABP Congress Planning Committee and the EABP Board offer a virtual space for us to assemble, to share ideas and to re-connect. A virtual gathering of members, and those interested in BP, where we acknowledge and celebrate with each other.
Our Keynote Speakers, our Whole Congress Workshops and our Symposia will pick up on the theme of the Virtual Congress, September 10th – 12th 2021:
Sense and Sensations:
the Experience of Fullness in Body Psychotherapy
On Friday we have an interactive presentation from EABP member Marianne Bentzen.
Followed by a panel discussion with last president and current chair of Think Tank Committee, Lidy Evertsen and current President, Carmen Joanne Ablack.
On Saturday we have a presentation from EABP and Board member Dr Kathrin A. Stauffer.
Followed by a panel with Board member, Fabio Carbonari, and previous General Secretary, Sladjana Djordjevic.
On Sunday afternoon there will be a special Questions and Answers session with Dr Stephen W. Porges. Dr Porges will speak to a series of questions sent in by some of our members. Followed by a panel discussion with Professors Genovino Ferri and introduced by Maurizio Stupiggia.
On behalf of all the membership we wish to thank our previous Congress Planning Committee (CPC) colleagues for their hard work and dedication: Maurizio Stupiggia, Lidy Evertsen, Fabio Carbonari, Genovino Ferri, Carmen Joanne Ablack and Rosanna De Sanctis.
Thanks to each of you for all your work and continued support as we move forward.
Our EABP 17th International (Virtual) Congress 2021 offers an equally exciting range of speakers, workshops and symposia to allow us to re-find ourselves in exchanges and discussions that will help shape our thinking and approaches to our BP work in Society going forward, in a very changed and changing world.
Can we rise to the challenges?
We hope to explore, discover and manage some defining of this as we engage together over the three days of Congress.
