Summary Psychiatric disorders can in many cases be linked to major disturbances in physical well-being. Unfortunately, the numerous efficient psychotherapies which involve the body have not yet completely found their way into official psychiatry. In contrast, many alternative treatments, of which some are quite controversial, are being offered by unqualified individuals. For a long time now, western culture has labelled the human body an origin of temptation and sin. Even though there has been a change during the last decades, professionals and artists interested in the body itself are still even today treated with great scepticism. This interesting publication provides a critical overview on research conducted mainly in Paris and Geneva. It aims to review the neurophysiological basis of body perception and schema in health and sickness, as well as widely accepted psychotherapeutic procedures for rehabilitation based on corporality. Psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, psychomotor therapists, psychotherapists and neurologists will find a wealth of information in this book that has until now been unavailable in English scientific literature
