Download Die magische Kraft der Berührung: Chancen und Möglichkeiten by Doris Steinbacher PDF

By Doris Steinbacher

In dieser Forschungsarbeit werden die verschiedenen Bedeutungen von Berührung in der Gesprächstherapie untersucht. Einerseits wird das Phänomen der Berührung als eine innere Berührtheit benannt und untersucht, welche unterschiedlichen Parallelen und Begriffe in der Psychotherapietheorie zu finden sind. Andererseits wird Berührung im körperlichen Sinne beleuchtet und in Zusammenhang mit der inneren Berührung gebracht. Das Phänomen der Berührung in ihren unterschiedlichen Ausprägungsformen muss als ein Ganzes gesehen werden, wobei die einzelnen Komponenten von Berührung einzeln auftreten können. In der Psychotherapie ist das Thema der taktilen Berührung ein vieldiskutiertes und heikles, wobei es auch einige Vorurteile ihr gegenüber gibt. In der Psychotherapietheorie wurde auf das Thema der Berührung noch nicht direkt eingegangen. Deshalb wird dieses Neuland theoretisch genauer beleuchtet und folgend von Gesprächen mit Psychotherapeutinnen und Psychotherapeuten aus freier Praxis erforscht. Es wurde mit dieser Studie dazu beigetragen, für den personenzentrierten Ansatz diese spezielle Frage der Bedeutung von Berührung ein Stück weiter zu klären.
