Regardless of the model adopted or the approach employed, current research indicates that the one consistently reliable variable impacting upon the beneficial outcome of therapeutic interventions is the relationship itself. This introductory seminar provides participants with the unique opportunity to develop their understanding of and ability to practise some key skills utilised by existential psychotherapy.
Participants will learn through lecture, discussion, and experiential exercises.
Material To Be Covered in the Workshop
