2021 Experiential Training Retreat

October 10, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - October 15, 2021 @ 1:00 pm

Gain Hands-On Training in Existential-Humanistic Therapy Practices!

Join the 2021-2022 Existential-Humanistic therapy training cohort through either the Foundations Certificate Program or the Experiential Training Course Retreat Program!

Taking applications and enrolling for 2021.

The hands-on training component for EHI’s programs has been updated. EHI now holds one longer training that combines the former two experiential trainings into one intensive residential retreat!

The next open experiential retreat for participants in both the Certificate and the Experiential Training programs will be held October 10th, 2021 – Oct 15th, 2021.

Students will receive the complete training previously experienced in our two retreats in one intensive retreat! Approximately forty-three training hours are scheduled in this updated Experiential Training. This update makes the training more effective and much less expensive for attendees. To ensure all our students get the best possible experiential training in Existential-Humanistic therapeutic practices the training cohorts are limited to 20 students max.

EHI Programs That Feature the Updated Single Experiential Training

Certificate in the Foundations of Existential-Humanistic Therapy

For students looking for grounding in E-H theory & practice.

The Foundations Certificate Program coursework provides students with an E-H Therapy foundational core by integrating both theory and practice into each course. New to EHI? Join this year long certificate program which is open to licensed professionals who seek to enhance their clinical skills and full or half-time students in a masters or doctoral psychology program.

Experiential Training Course
For those interested only in the EHI Experientials.

Open to licensed mental health professionals and graduate students who would like to participate in EHI’s Experiential Training. Master E-H therapists and noted authors such as Kirk Schneider, PhD and Orah Krug, PhD. create intimate, safe and collaborative training environments which emphasize hands-on learning of relational and experiential techniques. Participants learn how to enter their clients’ self constructed worlds, using their own personal contexts to develop responsiveness to clients while also cultivating the “presence” that enables genuine encounters and real therapeutic change. Designed for attendance and participation at the retreat is the only commitment, no additional course-work required.
