PBSP America Connect is the official website of the United States Pesso Boyden System Psychomotor (USPBSP), a non-profit membership organization of Psychomotor teachers, practitioners and learners who have benefited from the work of Albert Pesso and Diane Boyden-Pesso, who developed PBSP after spending years observing how human emotions were expressed in body action and in speech. They wanted to understand not only how emotional feelings become outward behaviors, but also to learn how to manage and control the impact that emotional expression had on others. That is, those involved in the interaction. From those beginnings, a large body of techniques, theories of human interaction and a process of emotional re-education evolved. PBSP is now a unified theory that has at its foundation a vision of what it means to be human – biologically, psychologically, sociologically, philosophically, and spiritually.
Since 1973, thousands of therapists around the world have received training in PBSP. Currently, there are 17 PBSP certification training programs taking place in 10 countries. In Holland, one of the first European countries to recognize the value of PBSP, there are 80 PBSP client groups and the number of clients in treatment with PBSP now exceeds that of clients in psychoanalytic treatment.
