About the event
This series of 12, monthly 2-hour experiential group practice sessions is designed to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and the practical application of the fundamental skills of Humanistic Therapy. The series is in a cohort design and will have a maximum of 12 participants. The group will meet the 2nd Tuesday of every month, beginning August 9th, 2022 and ending the 12-month series in July 2023.
This series of classes has been developed to address the need that many therapists experience -- how to apply, in a practical manner, the theoretical concepts within existential and humanistic therapy. It is designed to facilitate the acquisition of the fundamental skills of an experiential approach to humanistic therapy utilizing a deliberate practice model. We will dedicate 2 hours per month to experiential, repeated training with a particular counseling skill from a humanistic therapy perspective until it becomes natural and automatic.
Each class will be divided into 3 parts:
1. Theoretical presentation and rationale of why the skill is important and how it is therapeutic (45 minutes)
2. Demonstration with a volunteer by the presenter (15 minutes)
3. Break-out groups of triads for deliberate practice (60 minutes)
Since the workshop series is in a cohort format, the same people will remain in the group throughout the 12 months. The skills start from more beginner skills and increase to more advanced skills as we move through the months. To get the most from this, it is important to be at each class and complete the series. However, you are free stop at any time.
Days/Times: The 2nd Tuesday of the month from 2pm-4pm PST (beginning August 9th, 2022)
Fee: $85 per workshop (paid each month for the duration of the series)
