N.26 - Sensoriality, corporeity, and sexuality in the group

Notes on sensoriality, corporeity and sexuality in the group

Abstract

Sensoriality, body and sexuality within the group process were introduced by Carl Gustav Jung’s theory of the soma-psyche unit. Jung. Also through some examples coming from the author’s own experience with therapeutic groups, we will deal with the role played by the senses and by non-verbal communication within the group dynamics. The body is first inspected about its beauty, to be then represented in the group as sexed body, in its various possibilities: as a possible exchange, as an aspect of the group bond, as the beginning of a possible symbolic transformation and as a display of alterity.
