“Bodies of Experience”

Workshop and lecture at the Nordic Psychiatry Conference "Schizofrenidagene" in Stavanger, Norway.

The body is the home of the self; an arena for pleasure and pain, and also for our lived stories and experiences.

How do we experience our bodies? How does the body express our experiences? What relationship does the body have to identity and self-awareness in modern society? And what is the role of the body in newer psychotherapy models and mental health care?
