Sat, Jul 8 - Sat, Mar 10 2018Applied Existential Psychotherapy (AEP): Module I Individual Therapy, Robyn Chauvin, BPI - 303 494 0393
AEP is an experiential therapy that interlaces the insights of contemporary existential and psychoanalytic/psychodynamic approaches with techniques inspired by Gestalt therapy and other experiential approaches. Many psychoanalytic approaches ignore the body, while many experiential approaches fail to take into account defenses, transference and countertransference issues. AEP takes into account the full spectrum of human experience - body, meaning, emotion, the impact of the past, and the choices that need to be made to create a different future. Module I offers intensive experiential training in AEP individual therapy. Learn More. Sign Up.
