Series of discussions, dialogues and conversations between Prof Ernesto Spinelli and International existential therapists Online in Zoom “Welcome to this series of discussions, dialogues and conversations between various existential therapists and myself. Existential therapy is a wide ranging arena, with many perspectives and different views that also, fundamentally, share an attitude expressing a way of thinking and being with people. Representatives of the existential approach from different parts of the world have agreed to engage in an open-format discussion with me. Each of them will bring their own particular topic of interest as the focus for the discussion. From these, participants will hopefully see that existential therapy and existential thought in general cover a huge range of topics, view points and perspectives and explores these in a way that it is different, stimulating and enjoyable.” Prof Ernesto Spinelli PROGRAMME 2022 Ten Saturdays from 2pm to 3pm (UK time) Existential Dialogues between Prof Ernesto Spinelli and the following guests: Dr MANU BAZZANO "Therapy and the Daimonic" (22 January) Dr KATERINA ZYMNIS "Diving into the Co-Created World of the Psychotherapeutic Encounter" (19 February) Dr TODD DUBOSE "The Power of Phenomenological Openness" (19 March) MICHAEL MONTGOMERY "Reconciling the Past" (23 April) Dr YAQUI MARTINEZ "Challenges to Existential Therapeutic Practice" (21 May) BÁRBARA GODOY "Brainstorming the Basis of an Existential Laboratory" Learn More...

Sat, Feb 19 2022 - Sat, Apr 23 2022. Somatic-Concentric Sex Therapy Training For Students & Professionals, 7203459144
Sexuality is a complex and highly socialized aspect of being a fully social, vibrant, and creative human being. Those who are at home in their body and their sexuality tend to be more confident and expressive about their desires and boundaries. They are also more likely to see body changes or sexual issues as opportunities for deeper learning and personal growth, instead of devastating self-confidence or their relationships. Where do we begin to build such personal awareness and confidence? Our clients are bombarded by so many sex- and body-negative messages from cultural, familiar, and religious sources that it is hard to know where to begin! This online course offers an integrated, socially-just, and trauma-informed method to support your client's sexual and intimate lives. With the foundation of Sex Therapy with Somatic Psychotherapy and Dance/Movement Therapy, this method traverses the many layers of the self. Participants will learn to evaluate the relationship between the somatic self and all the important social arenas that influence how we inhabit and express ourselves. This body-based journey will show you how to integrate the exciting and easeful aspects of sexuality with the unconscious and fractured aspects, allowing for an integrative exploration and discovery of a whole-bodied erotic self. Meet your instructors! Lead instructor: Melissa Walker & Assistant instructor: Anna Mayer Over 3 weekends and 3 zoom consultation groups in between, you will learn how to Learn More...

Coaching in a New Key: An Applied Existential Approach

Sat, Mar 12 2022 - Sat, Oct 22 2022

Betty Cannon and Robyn Chauvin, BPI - 303 494 0393

Have you found during the pandemic that you actually like working online? Then you might want to consider adding existential coaching to your professional repertoire. Unlike therapy, which is limited by state laws, coaching can be done across state lines or actually anywhere in the world. This class will help you retool some of your existing knowledge for coaching. Since existential therapy is already attuned to life issues, this is a transition that is easier to make than the transition from more medical-model approaches. But there are some important differences between coaching and therapy. You will learn to use specific existential coaching interventions with individuals, couples, and groups or organizations. Since the coaching relationship tends to be more egalitarian than the therapy relationship, there will be plenty of room for creativity for both client and therapist. The training is both didactic and experiential. We will talk about principles and techniques, demonstrate them, introduce experiential exercises, and ask you to practice with each other and/or practice clients outside of class. Participants who complete the class will receive a 48-hour Certificate of Study in Applied Existential Coaching.
