Embodied Online Therapy provides an extensive exploration of trauma, its impacts on the body, and how therapeutic practices can be applied in online settings. The authors delve deep into the interdisciplinary connections of trauma, offering insights into its presence in various life stages and its relation to emotional, physical, and social challenges.

The book systematically unpacks the concept of trauma, its historical evolution, and its connection to the body and mind. A strong emphasis is placed on understanding the trauma-body connection from a cognitive perspective, exploring the roots of traumatic experiences in early relational contexts, and discussing the development of psychopathological conditions.

The authors introduce body-centric therapeutic practices, highlighting the importance of a bottom-up approach. They detail how various methodologies such as Sensorymotor Therapy, Somatic Experiencing®, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) can be adapted for online settings, and they provide a roadmap for practitioners to formulate cases and evaluate, diagnose, and apply therapeutic techniques effectively.

Embodied Online Therapy stands as a resource for therapists, psychologists, and practitioners seeking to understand the intricacies of trauma, embrace body-centered therapeutic practices, and adapt these methodologies to the evolving landscape of online therapy.
