In this survey the Core Science Foundation explored the pro’s and the cons of online therapy in relation to Core Energetics (CE); a body orientated psychotherapeutic approach with specific concepts like Mask, Lower Self and Higher Self. The Corona pandemic and the social (physical) distancing that comes with it, has majorly impacted Core practitioners in their approach, which normally contains elements of physical closeness or physical contact.
Core practitioners were asked to fill out a short questionnaire, that surveyed their findings and experiences with giving online sessions, and they were asked to formulate recommendations based on their experiences. According to the outcome of this survey, Core practitioners manage to move along with the societal measures. They are very willing to keep supporting their clients in this time where all of us must cope with fear, loneliness and the big “not-knowing”. Core practitioners intend to support their clients in accepting feelings, releasing them, helping them staying connected with reality and taking health(y) responsibility.
To support each other to adjust to the changing circumstances in the world, we want to ask you questions about how you deal with online therapy and how this effects your work. We close this survey 20 april 2020. Please take some minutes to fill in this survey in Survey Money. Copy this url in your webbrowser:

Thank you, on behalf of the board.

‘I need a little bit of happiness, yeah.’
The Happiness Fantasy, first published in 2018 by Polity Press (ISBN 9781509523818; the title in Dutch is: Ons geluksideaal) is written by Carl Cederström. He is an associate professor of organization studies at Stockholm Business School. In his research he focusses on Lacanian psychoanalysis, philosophy, politics and work. The author is co-writer of The Wellness Syndrome and Desperately Seeking Self-Improvement. Books also about the contemporary obsession with health and happiness.
With a critical and sometimes tongue in cheek tone Carl Cederström takes the reader from the young Wilhelm Reich to the Trumpusconi’s of this time to lecture about the fantasy of happiness. A warming up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1lhN0_DYsY
What happens when a question sparks a search? When a curious mind latches onto a quest to find answers that make sense, not just at a cognitive level but also with a bodily resonance, so it feels right? Well, if you’re Stephen W. Porges, you end up trying to understand how our physiology is related to our mental and behavioral states and then, with data in hand, you propose the Polyvagal Theory (1994), which links the evolution of the vertebrate autonomic nervous system to the emergence of social behavior.
An intriguing book about the wife behind one of the founders of psychotherapy, Carl Jung, and the early years of psychoanalysis: Emma Jung-Rauschenbach. The author, Catrine Clay (a director and producer of documentaries at the BBC) puts it bluntly: ‘The world would not have the Carl Jung it knew, without Emma Jung steady in the background.’
