Abstract

The text deals with the anthropological analogies of psychotherapy and movement therapy, especially in view of cooperation between therapists of both directions. Points in common are: coordination of psychic and somatic processes, the unity of perception and movement, the significance of imagination, the connection of the imaginary with the real consciousness as well as promotion of partial functions with central integration and of activity with relaxation. Important analogies further concern the experience of space, time and the formation of identity. Finally the two therapeutic approaches are connected with the different functional centres of both brain hemispheres.
