They believe that their interventions go beyond physical, behavioral, and verbal boundaries and that intervention on any one level affects identity, health, and soul simultaneously. In BEYOND TECHNIQUE: The Hidden Dimensions of Bodywork, twenty-five bodyworkers relate the often troubling experiences they have had with their clients. They share issues that often go undiscussed - the frustration of building a practice, problematic clients, sexuality, abuse, losing clients - all of these issues are candidly presented and examined. The power of touch - coping with illness, injury, death and dying - limit setting as a means of enhancing personal integrity - are but a few of the topics discussed. After each interview Dr. Kisch addresses each topic with the wisdom gleaned from more than twenty years of professional practice. He uses these fascinating interviews to teach the reader the psychology of the bodywork profession and highlights how understanding a difficult situation can often lead to a sense of personal-professional fulfillment and nourishment.
