Alan Fogel is a Professor of Psychology Emeritus at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. He is the recipient of numerous teaching and research awards, a fellow of the American Psychological Association, and has been a Fulbright Fellow. He has been an active contributor to research on social and emotional development in early childhood for the past 35 years.
Because of his interest in how infants develop in a socio-sensory-emotional world, Fogel's clinical practice is not psychotherapy but rather Rosen Method Bodywork (www.rosenjournal.org). This is a treatment modality for adults combining touch and responsive talk with the goal of enhancing client embodied self-awareness. On the basis of his clinical experience, research work, and scholarly investigations, Fogel's new book, Body Sense, builds upon his previous books such as Developing through Relationships and Change Processes in Relationships, to create a scientifically informed view of how our ability (or lack of it) to connect with our own bodies is regulated via our interactions with significant others.
Alan has a private Rosen Bodywork practice, and regularly teaches workshops and trainings in Rosen Method and in Embodied Self-Awareness (www.alanfogelrosenmethod.abmp.com)
