Pesso Boyden System Psychomotor (PBSP) uses the mind-body connection to facilitate healing.
Usually dealing with traumatic memories, practitioners of PBSP focus on uncovering unmet childhood needs and helping individuals understand how these unmet needs affect them as adults in their present lives.
PBSP asserts that people can address unmet childhood needs within the present through movement, body awareness, and physical touch.
Unmet childhood needs can affect people throughout their lives, leading to a person not being their true self. PBSP seeks to help individuals realign themselves with their true selves.
The practitioners help people identify what their unmet needs are. After discovering them, they help individuals recreate the memory and process their emotions.
These sessions are usually in a group setting. Facilitators teach group members to be more sensitive and attuned to the sensations that arise within their bodies as they move. By recognizing and becoming more aware of the mind-body connection, people can experience growth and change.
