The Existential Humanistic Institute is offering existential-humanistic therapy consultation groups for licensed/pre-licensed professionals via Zoom led by EHI Instructors. Consultation focuses on cases that illustrate the existential-humanistic orientation to therapeutic practice. These groups are an opportunity to explore how therapeutic orientations are enhanced by incorporating existential and humanistic perspectives.
EHI’s Consultation Groups
EHI’s Consult Groups are intended to give participants hands-on experiential opportunities to gain a deeper understanding of how to work with clients from an E-H perspective. Each group is facilitated by two EHI instructors who serve as the group leaders. Leaders emphasize effective relational and experiential techniques that enable genuine encounters and real therapeutic change.
In each group participants focus on:
- Cultivating clients’ personal and relational presence
- Tracking and reflecting clients’ process
- Mirroring and resolving clients’ problematic protective patterns.
By role-playing clients we gain depth to our understanding of:
- Their self and world constructs.
- How their protective patterns may trigger the therapist.
- How to work with the therapist’s personal contexts to resolve therapeutic impasses.
Professional and Supportive Group Environment
Participants present cases in a safe and supportive environment. The group leaders assist the group to not only understand the complexities and nuances of the suffering of the client but also the challenges to the therapist to effect change.
