The movement repertoire that develops in the first year of life is
a language in itself and conveys desires, intentions, and emotions.
This early life in motion serves as the roots of ongoing nonverbal
interaction and later verbal expression - in short, this language
remains a key element in communication throughout life. In their
path-breaking book, gestalt therapist Ruella Frank and
psychoanalyst Frances La Barre give readers the tools to see and
understand the logic of this nonverbal realm. They demonstrate how
observations of fundamental movement interactions between babies
and parents cue us to coconstructed experiences that underlie
psychological development. Numerous clinical vignettes and detailed
case studies show how movement observation opens the door to
understanding problems that develop in infancy and also those that
appear in the continuing nonverbal dimension of adult
communication. Their user-friendly nonverbal lexicon - foundational
movement analysis - enhances perception of emerging interactive
patterns of parents and their babies, couples, and individual
adults within psychotherapy. Clinicians in any setting will find
this book to be a masterful application of infant research and
movement theory that significantly augments clinical acumen and
promotes greater understanding of the nonverbal basis of all
