NASW/CT Approved CEC Program

The Five Energetic Body Types:  What They Reveal About Your Clients

Approved for six credit hours

Energetic Body Types (EBTs) are Alexander Lowen's bio-energetic character structures, updated to include the psycho-spiritual patterns of each one.  The five types are:  Creator, Lover, Supporter, Achiever and Challenger.  Each reflects a way of holding energy in the body that defends against emotional pain.  Adopted in childhood, these (unconscious) defensive patterns prevent our clients from enjoying balanced relationships and moving through life with flow, ease and grace.

For each body type, you'll discover:

  • How they engage in life
  • Their main issues
  • Their hidden agendas
  • How they feel
  • How they make others feel
  • How they speak
  • Their human challenge
  • Their spiritual life task
  • Early imprinting
  • The energy centers most affected
  • Their shadow emotions
  • How their overall energy feels
  • What physical and emotional difficulties each body type is prone to
  • Their gifts and talents
  • Short and long-term healing practices 

You'll identify the primary (and possibly secondary) body type of a challenging client (or yourself) using assessment questions for each EBT.  This unlocks a wealth of information about the client that informs the therapeutic process.  With practice, the therapist begins to see how each body type is active, in varying degrees, within each client.

Each of us embodies characteristics of each body type.  An interesting aspect of the work is that clients' issues frequently reflect our own.  This makes us uniquely equipped to assist clients in becoming aware of unconscious programs that may be undermining their well being.  Additionally, we can guide them toward their inherent gifts and talents.


Participants will develop basic skill in the following areas with respect to each body type:

1.  Identifying the physical characteristics 
2.  Identifying the psycho/spiritual issues
3.  Recommending specific healing practices
4.  Identifying primary EBTs
5.  Understanding the energy dynamics at play

The material is presented via PowerPoint, lecture supplemented with anecdotes.  Assessment worksheets help identify the body types and provide a basis for discussion throughout the day.  We conclude with a relaxing guided meditation to integrate learning.
