Online Meeting and Get Together 13 January 2023

The Practice of Bonding Psychotherapy - Sharing Group Methods

The Energizing Task Force has scheduled an initial meeting and get together for all members of the International Society to begin sharing the ways that providers in different parts of the world practice Bonding Psychotherapy in their groups. As we all know, we utilize the same theory but each group has its own flavor. There has been an interest in learning how others run their groups. This will be an opportunity to meet each other and to share our experiences.

In the initial meeting, Lorenzo Brocchini, TF of Italy will discuss his way of conducting BP groups. We have set aside a 3 hour time period in order to allow enough time for good discussion and sharing.

Again, the date is 13 January 2023 and the meeting times are:

  • 1100 to 1400 Eastern US
  • 1300 to 1600 Argentina
  • 1600 to 1900 Portugal
  • 1700 to 2000 Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Slovenia

Join us for a good start to the new year!

Bonding Psychotherapy: 50 years of history and a look to the future!

Are you an enthusiastic about mental health, human behaviour and how the way we relate with others influence our mind and actions?

So you need to know more about bonding psychotherapy, one of oldest and and most effective therapies. If you are phsychiatrist, pshycologist, nurse, social worker or other one who works and care about people this training is ideal for you.

As many of you know that the actual physical meeting for the Board that was going to be in Belluno, Italy has been canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. The ExCo met and decided that we would schedule zoom meetings for June 20, 2020 and June 21, 2020. Each day we would meet at 10 AM Eastern standard time in the United States and Argentina. That would be 3 PM in Portugal and 4 PM in Germany. We anticipate that each of these meetings will be three hours long in duration. We are also aware of concerns of some people regarding the use of zoom meetings. We have decided to move forward since our experiences with zoom have been positive and we have a secure account through ISBP.


The ISBP is the official organization for Bonding Psychotherapy worldwide. As a professional organization, the ISBP is dedicated to the promotion and development of Bonding Psychotherapy, and to its advancement in the areas of practice, theory, research and training.

Bonding Psychotherapy was developed in the 1960s and 70s by the American Psychiatrist and Psychoanalyst Dr. Daniel Casriel (d. 1983).

Bonding is the process of becoming emotionally open and physically close to another person. Exercises with other group members help to experience and fulfill the need for bonding. During these exercises intense emotions often surface that are linked to past painful experiences. With the described method, trust in others is increased and negative attitudes concerning oneself in relation to others become more positive.

These are emotionally corrective experiences. An overview of the research results is given. For our colleagues, there is a slew of articles and research papers about Bonding Psychotherapy (Publications), as well as a description of requirements for training (Training).
