EHNW Lunch and Learn – The Later Stages of Adult Development and their Foundation

Presented by Diane Steinbrecher, LCSW and Shannon Pernetti

What do the later stages of researched Adult development beyond Piaget look like? How can we use researched development in making clinical interventions, assessment, and diagnosis? What does it take to move to the next level of development and how do therapists assist this happening? We'll also be looking at developmental theory as a way of understanding the divisions that are so oppressive in our world today, and how to help shift into a more unified and generative 'good for all' way!

3rd World Congress of Existential Therapy

Royal Olympic Hotel, Athens, Greece Athens

Living in the Here and Now:
Embracing our roots
Creating our future

Heraclitus states that "Everything flows and nothing remains". He reminds us that "nobody bathes twice in the same river", explaining not only that the water in the river flows, but that people also change from one moment to another.

Our existence is always present, initiating and encompassing all of our biological and social history. At the same time, and while existence encompasses the past, it is envisioned and moving towards the future. A future in which human beings do not merely move but create, through their inherent freedom.

The 3rd World Congress of Existential Therapy that will be held in Athens in May 2023 will offer an opportunity to address the here and now while embracing our roots and building a vision towards the future.
