Online Training in Existential Analysis 

The CEAL is excited to announce that we now offer an online program fully accredited by the International Society of Logotherapy and Existential Analysis, Vienna. All programs are under the direct guidance of and taught by Alfried Längle and and other faculty from the CEAL. 

Certificate Program in Existential Analysis

The online certificate program is a great way to get the same in-depth experiential education but from anywhere in the world. Since the program is in a cohort format, community and encounter are essential aspects of the experience. In EA, we believe that the development of the person happens through a dual-dialogical process (the inner dialogue with within ourselves and the other dialogue with the world around us). Therefore, it is important that the group meets face to face and in-person 1x per year for a 5-day seminar. The remainder of the classes will be held every other month through live, online seminars via Zoom.
