Description - Body of Awareness by Ruella Frank

This work explores the formation of infant movement experience and its manifest influence upon the later adult. It shows how the organizing principles in early development are functionally equivalent to those of the adult and shows how movement plays a critical role in a developing self-awareness for the infant and in maintaining a healthy self throughout life. In addition, a variety of case studies shows how developmental movement patterns are part of the moment-to-moment process of the adult client and how to bring these patterns to awareness within therapy. The client's emerging patterns of breathing, gesture, posture and gait are understood from a developmental framework and attended to within the perspective of this somatic and developmental approach. The case studies convey how, through a variety of experiments, our movement patterns can be subtly altered to enrich rather than inhibit our current functioning.
