The theoretical foundation of EA is deeply rooted in existential and phenomenological philosophy. The psychotherapeutic practice of EA is a person-centered, phenomenological approach that is applicable to treat all kinds of personal and psychological struggles.

COURSES & PROGRAMS
ONLINE & HYBRID TRAINING PROGRAMS
The training events offered by the CEAL are dedicated to advancing the theory and practice of Existential Analysis through research and in-depth, experiential training programs.
The full training Certificate and Diploma programs are designed to fit the budget and schedule of working professionals and students. The meetings are held live, online over 1 weekend every other month. Additionally, in order to foster the face to face encounter and strengthen group cohesion, each cohort gathers once per year for a 5 day in-person seminar. The cost of the in-person seminar is already included in the monthly tuition.
COHORT TRAINING PROGRAM
The training programs offered by the CEAL are designed to be in-depth and experiential. The format is both online and in-person and designed to focus first on the personal development of the person of the trainee through an understanding of the concepts that are elaborated in the training and how these themes emerge in our own lives. This approach facilitates a richer, more authentic understanding of each concept and makes it more accessible to the therapist when it is encountered with clients.
