About Integral Somatic Psychology

Integral Somatic Psychology™ (ISP™) is a master professional training developed to improve diverse outcomes and shorten treatment times in all therapy modalities. Based on Western and Eastern psychologies, ISP offers ways to improve outcomes in all therapy modalities including all body-oriented therapies such as Somatic Experiencing® (SE™), through building a greater capacity for a larger range of emotions including the always-present and often-overlooked sensorimotor emotions and using the larger container of body, energy, and consciousness.

Developed by Raja Selvam, PhD, a licensed clinical psychologist (CA PSY30233), ISP has as its scientific basis findings from state-of-the-art research in affect theory, cognitive psychology, the physiology of emotions, the neuroscience of embodied cognition, emotion, and behavior, Somatic Experiencing (SE), Bodynamic Somatic Developmental Psychology, energy psychology, and quantum physics. ISP is currently taught in over a dozen countries in North America, Europe, and Asia.

Ruth Shidlo, graduate of the ISP Training
Having been interested in affect theory for many years, I found Raja’s approach spot on in terms of redirecting attention to affect (rather than sensation) and connecting it to the whole body. This helped me understand why I was sometimes frustrated with SE™. On a personal level I found the “hands-on” experience very valuable and meaningful, both as a patient and as a therapist.
