Integrative Body Psychotherapy (IBP) was founded by Dr. Jack Lee Rosenberg, further developed with Diana Asay, a Jungian Analyst, and Dr. Marjorie Rand, and presented to the public as a new therapeutic approach in their book, Body, Self and Soul - Sustaining Integration (1985). IBP combines Psychoanalysis, Object Relations Theory, Gestalt therapy, Reichian therapy, Self Psychology, Bioenergetics (Bioenergetic analysis), Transpersonal Psychotherapy, Yoga and Eastern theories and practices into an implementation system for psychotherapy.

There are 14 regional IBP institutes spanning the globe, including the U.S., Canada, Switzerland, Germany, and Belgium. In Switzerland and Canada, IBP is approved by state authorities as the first method of body psychotherapy.

The IBP institutes are members of the U.S. Association for Body Psychotherapy (USABP), and the European Association for Body Psychotherapy (EABP)

Approach

IBP's approach is a holistic one, taking body, self and soul as inseparable aspects of being human. It focuses on the somatic, emotional, social, and spiritual energetic experience, and the way these are expressed in relationships through words and embodiment.

Concepts

The concepts used in the therapy are: Body-awareness, Core or True Self (self psychology), Breath, Grounding, Containment, Boundaries (see Gestalt therapy), Fragmentation and Reframing-composition, Issue of Sexuality, Current Situation, Here and Now, Transference and Counter transference in the therapeutic relationship. The concepts of Secret Themes, Character Style, (other) Agency and Self Agency Daniel Stern (psychologist)|Daniel Stern were developed later with Beverly Morse Ph.D and integrated into IBP. Release of tension and transpersonal aspects round off the concepts. The aim is to create a greater and smoother sense of wholeness both within oneself, with others and existentially with the cosmic powers that be.

=History= Rosenberg first brought his Bodymind|mind-body psychology to dentists in the early 1960s, later he brought body-mind integration to psychotherapists and counsellors.

Jack Rosenberg became a training therapist and board member at the Gestalt Institute of Psychotherapy, San Francisco (1968–1976). As a trainer at the Gestalt Institute in San Francisco for nine years, he first called his work Gestalt Body Psychotherapy (GBT) and only in the 1980s "Integrative Body Psychotherapy" after starting to write "Body, Self and Soul - Sustaining Integration" in 1979.
