Awards to Your Graduates is Always an Honor and Testament to Your Methods

Our Award events honor the many positive contributing milestones in our history. And from time to time it is in special order that we take time to honor a few individuals in particular.

We are pleased each year to present Award Recipients to honor them and all that they represent in our industry. Join us at our next Award Ceremony.


Since its inception in 1998, the USABP has made it a priority to honor the people who have made somatic psychology, body psychotherapy, and body/mind practices what they are today: acknowledging our history is extremely important in our identity as an organization.
