Calatonia arose out of necessity during WWII, and it was probably the first somatic therapy developed from, and initially for, those suffering from war trauma. After the war, Calatonia became a psychotherapy method. Sándor’s method was ahead of its time in relation to the recent findings from interpersonal neurobiology and social-affective neuroscience as even back in the 1950s, it proposed that patients could experience regulated states in dyadic regulation with the therapist, within a safe, empathic and attuned relationship.
