Core Skills in Existential-Humanistic Psychotherapy - An Online Workshop

Friday, January 26 through Sunday, January 28, 2024

Fully Remote Workshop – Online Via Zoom! 

An Existential-Humanistic approach to psychotherapy can be a foundation for all therapists seeking to do deep and life-changing work with their clients. The E-H approach is based on core ways of being and working with clients that help facilitate greater awareness, greater sense of choice, increased agency and adaptiveness and a deeper connection to self and others – all in the service of healing and growing. There are core capacities and skills an E-H therapist uses to help clients effectively explore and work through their existential predicaments so they can more fully access what deeply matters to them. In this 16-hour online training, leading instructors in the E-H field will provide theoretical explanation and experiential opportunities for the development and/or strengthening of skills and capacities that are not only core to the E-H approach but can also support therapists of many other modalities cultivate a foundation for optimizing their technical skills. Topics covered include:
  • The cultivation of presence as both the ground of therapy and one of its primary objectives
  • The focus on the “living moment” in working with the “here-and-now” experience of clients – staying with what presents itself phenomenologically rather than employing theoretical interventions
  • The differentiation between primary, direct experience and secondary, interpretive experience – and the emphasis on working with phenomenological experience
  • The meaning-making process and the formation of the Self-and-World Construct – helping client and therapist understand identity construction and de-construction
  • How to work with the client’s ways of being in the world and how to utilize the therapist-client relationship to help shift unhelpful ways of being
  • How to identify and work through clients’ inner battles in order to support their longings to emerge, and feel more choice-ful and psychospiritually whole
  • Integrating and embodying your theoretical beliefs and authentic sense of self in your work as a therapist

This training is ideal for those who have not yet had any intensive training in E-H therapy or for those who have and are seeking a refresher or reinforcement of what they’ve learned: this training works in and of itself but can also be a precursor to the longer residential training EHI holds or even a helpful follow-up to the residential training.
