Call for papers:
First International Conference of the European Association of Phenomenology and Psychopathology (EAPP)
Heidelberg, 22nd-24th September 2022
Topic: “The Emotions: Phenomenology, Psychopathology, and Psychotherapy”
Theories of emotions and their regulation are still dominated by cognitive approaches, whereas the bodily experience of emotions was treated as an add-on without particular relevance. In the last decade, however, concepts of embodiment have gained increasing importance not only for cognitive science, but also for emotion research. The bodily resonance of emotions already emphasized by William James has been found to underlie processes of interaffectivity and empathy, thus challenging the concepts of Theory of Mind or mentalizing still prevailing in social psychology. These insights are of particular importance for psychotherapy, where subliminal processes of non-verbal interaction, synchronization and bodily countertransference crucially influence the therapeutic process and outcome.
