In this interview, Ruella Frank describes her educational background, and the writers and theories that have influenced her work. The author’s approach focuses on movement patterns that support every emerging contact sequence. The experience of the field is only possible through experience of the body of others. Through repeated experiences of moving-with others, people develop a postural attitude that influences movement patterns. Kinaesthetic resonance, the relational feel of relationality, arises from sensitization to the rythmic pulsations of moving together. The author explains her interests in traumatic attaching and describes her clinical work in parent-baby therapy sessions, pointing out the clinical importance of facilitating kinaesthetic awareness on the part of the parents.
