SHP Conference Cancelled, Hopefully Postponed

Nathaniel Granger, Chair of the Society of Humanistic Psychology’s Conference Committee, has announced that the annual SHP Conference has been cancelled and hopefully only postponed.

Greetings SHP Friends and Family,

It is with saddened hearts that the Society for Humanistic has cancelled/postponed its conference in light of COVID-19. Many of our attendees and presenters fall into the categories outlined by the CDC. Furthermore, we have been notified by others who cannot travel as a result of bands placed on travel. The barrage of phone calls, emails, and inquiries have made it virtually impossible to proceed as planned, and the complications resulting from the coronavirus has made it impossible for us to hold a viable conference at this time. JUST IN: The University of New Orleans (UNO) our host school, has just announced that they have cancelled all classes and switched to online classes. UNO has agreed to grant us full reimbursement and other vendors have been most sensitive. For reimbursement questions, please email Andrew Bland andrewbland@hotmail.com and/or Kevin Keenan at kkeenan@msp.edu. We are all disheartened and thank you all for your understanding and consideration in this unfortunate and unforeseen matter. We do look forward to seeing you at the upcoming SHP conference, time to be determined.


Nathaniel Granger, Jr., PsyD.

Chair, SHP Conference Committee

EHNW Lunch-n-Learn: Fostering Authenticity

Fostering Authenticity: Character Analytic and Somatic Interventions in Contemporary Orgone (Reichian) Therapy
Presented by Daniel Schiff, PhD
All humanistic and existentially based therapies share the understanding that many of the symptoms that clients bring to therapy stem from their inability to live an authentic life.  The fostering of authenticity is therefore one of their primary goals.  Contemporary Orgone (Reichian) Therapy, a humanistic/existential therapeutic approach based upon the integration of Wilhelm Reich’s character analytic and bioenergetic therapy, gestalt therapy, person-centered therapy and self psychology,  approaches this endeavor through addressing the cognitive, emotional, behavioral and somatic defenses that prevent one from making full contact with their authenticity.
