CIRDH - INTERNATIONAL CENTER FOR RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT OF HAPTONOMY, 'Haptopsychotherapy', http://haptonomy.org/va/generalPublic/haptotherapy.html (bezocht 3 december 2014).
Haptopsychotherapy offers those who are being aided the possibility of self-activating the resources linked to their libido vitalis desire and zest for life which is the basic foundation of human existence.
In the course of the first, so-called 'discovery' encounters, the person discovers and recognises the restrictions and limitations which have become established in his affective life in response to the deficiencies and frustrations of his relationships with others. (…) The person discovers that, beyond his inadequate adaptations of apprehension and fear, he learns to set his own particular affective faculties to work. He can live without pretence, without being on the defensive or trying to flee.
Following the discovery stage, the person explores his own affective faculties. Within the experience of security established through the affectivo-confirming relationship, the person no longer fears living out his feelings and emotions.
