Pat Ogden, psychotherapist and founder of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, said that a person suffering from depression often lives from a fight, flight or collapsed survival state of body-mind. The person's brain is forced to be in a primitive survival mode that is anxious and hyper vigilant a lot of the time, as they search for signs of safety in the environment. Being in this heightened state of alertness can result in a person feeling chronically tired and depressed as the nervous system and adrenal glands become depleted. The volume of dopamine and serotonin neurotransmitters and endorphins in the brain is reduced, causing depression. Working from a body mind orientation we help the person deeply feel their body instead of living mostly in their mind. Analysis is often created from a very young belief system that is no longer relevant to the now adult person. Healing occurs as one learns to take in new information through their body and mind (Pat Ogden, NICABN 2012).

The founder of the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute Pat Ogden describes how there is an optimal range of activation or arousal for a person that is containing and comfortable enough for them to process information. This is called the WOT (www.nicabm.com, Ogden, P. 'Body-Mind-Spirit Integration: Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for Treating Trauma').

Conversely when the level of activation experienced in the body-mind is overwhelming from remembering the trauma, understanding information becomes difficult. Ogden writes in her book that psychiatrist Bessel van der Kolk talks about a bi-phasic response to trauma. A person with trauma and anxiety can alternate their arousal levels from hyperactivity to hypo-arousal (both levels of activations are experienced outside the WOT). Hyper-arousal behaviour includes explosive and aggressive outbursts and a re-enactment of situations similar to the trauma, while hypo-arousal behaviour can involve social isolation. These level of activations are found at contrasting sides of the WOT. Hyper-arousal can heat the body, while hypo-arousal can freeze the body. As such it is important for the therapist to help the client to stay within the edges of the WOT for them to transform and integrate traumatic material. The WOT is an essential therapeutic tool used to create safety for the client and for the therapist to proceed with the correct therapeutic interventions (Ogden, P, & Minton, K.).

Ogden says it clearly "that in the first phase of treatment we are looking at physical actions that will help the person's arousal remain within the window" (www.nicabm, Ogden, P., Body-Mind-Spirit Integration: Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for Treating Trauma).
...
Ogden confirms that when the client and therapist are in this resonant contact, a felt sense of their connection creates an atmosphere where the healing can take place (Ogden, P., Minton, K.). This resonant client-therapist connection provides the corner stone for a successful therapeutic outcome. Sometimes when a client feels safe, and the therapy progresses easily the client can feel for the first time in a long while that they are not going crazy. Ogden agrees that as therapists when we accept and validate our client's conscious and unconscious experiences, their unconscious does not have to hide away or defend itself (Ogden, P., Minton, K.).
...
Ogden and Minton write that our "psychological capacities and beliefs are inextricably linked with the structure and movement of the body" (Ogden, P. and Minton, K.).
...
Clients also rediscover the wisdom of their own body (www.nicabm, Ogden, P. Integrating the Body in Trauma Treatment: A Sensorimotor Approach).
...
As Ogden said, the client "understood that her body was a resource rather than a liability" (www.nicabm.com, Ogden, P., Body-Mind-Spirit Integration: Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for Treating Trauma).

In 1981, along with Pat Ogden, Ph.D. and Dyrian Benz-Chartrand, Ph.D., he founded the Hakomi institute, which he led until 1992, when due to a fundamental disagreement about the method, he left to form Ron Kurtz Trainings and the Hakomi Educational Network. Kurtz's work-especially the techniques, mindfulness, and principles he brought to psychotherapy-- are the basis of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.

...
Pat Ogden and her colleagues are one of the most creative and prominent sources of neurobiologically, psychodynamically, and developmentally informed clinical models in the expanding world of somatically-focused psychotherapy. Pat is working closely with not only major figures in traumatology but also in neuropsychoanalysis and affective neuroscience. We first met after a presentation I gave at Bessel van der Kolk's trauma conference in 1999, where she began to apply my ideas about interactive psychobiological regulation of arousal within the therapeutic alliance to the treatment of acute and chronic trauma. The following essay on the incorporation of intersubjective-relational and arousal regulatory principles into sensorimotor psychotherapy is extrapolated from an upcoming book, Trauma and the Body: The Theory and Practice of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (WW Norton). Below Ogden and her associates convincingly argue that insight and words play limited roles in the treatment of trauma, and offer a therapeutic model that effectively integrates both top-down and bottom-up interventions.
...
In light of these advances in knowledge, Ogden's theoretically well-grounded yet highly practical clinical contributions are timely and important.
