Abstract

This paper reports quantitative results from a pilot study in primary care (PC) undertaken from 2004-2007. The intervention programme, derived from movement psychotherapy was termed 'Learning groups: the bodymind approach,' and emphasized a verbal and non-verbal integrated model, awareness of the inter-relationship between body and mind and a self-managing framework. Founded on the principle that bodily experience can be an avenue for meaning-making it uses metaphor and symbolism.
