"Weaving Sensorimotor Psychotherapy theory and practice into psychodynamic or cognitive-behavioral models of therapy, including EMDR and exposure treatments, helps unify the body and mind in the treatment of trauma. Moreover, this work can be effectively used as an adjunct to already existing psychotherapeutic modalities." — Daniel J. Siegel, MD, author of The Developing Mind: How Relationships and the Brain Interact to Shape Who We Are
"Since re-living trauma often occurs in the form of physical sensations... learning how to manage and uncouple physical sensations from trauma-based emotions has emerged as one of the essential aspects of the effective treatment of PTSD. Pat Ogden is the undisputed master of teaching clinicians how to work with physical sensation to help people beyond their trauma. For me, her work has opened up a whole new dimension of effective therapy." — Bessel A. van der Kolk, MD, author of Traumatic Stress: The Effects of Overwhelming Experience on Mind, Body and Society and The Body Keeps the Score
"Sensorimotor Psychotherapy is a conceptually elegant, powerfully effective body therapy that involves a broad repertoire of somatic interventions specifically designed to help clients tap into the wisdom of their bodies." — Martha Stark, MD, author of Working with Resistance and Modes of Therapeutic Action
"Pat Ogden and her colleagues are one of the most creative and prominent sources of neurobiologically, psychodynamically, and developmentally informed clinical models in the expanding world of somatically focused psychotherapy." — Allan Shore, PhD, author of Affect Regulations and the Origin of Self
