Case Conceptualization, Consultation, and Discussion from an Existential-Humanistic Perspective

Facilitated by EHI Board Members Bob Edelstein, LMFT & Dave Fischer, PsyD

Saturday March 18th, 10:00 PM – 12:00 PM, Pacific Standard Time

Virtual: EHNW will provide Zoom webinar details after registration

Fee: $20 Professionals | $15 Students | Free for EHNW Affiliates

EHNW invite you to join them in an open conversation. At this salon some therapy cases will be reviewed, including client’s presenting issues and potential therapeutic responses, from within an Existential-Humanistic framework. The discussion will be facilitated by EHNW board members, including Bob Edelstein and Dave Fischer. Please feel free to bring a current case for which you would like some consultation, or listen to others, ask questions, and contribute your comments. Due to time considerations, not every case will likely be discussed.

EHNW hopes in hosting these salons to create a space for practitioners and members of the EH community to gather, socialize, and explore meaningful topics. The conversation will be salon-style where participants share what is present for them as the conversation emerges.
