The Boulder Psychotherapy Institute (BPI) has been training therapists and graduate students in Applied Existential Psychotherapy (AEP) since 1989. AEP interlaces the insights of contemporary existential and psychodynamic approaches with techniques inspired by Gestalt and other experiential therapies. Jungian and expressive arts orientations may be included in some workshops.
Workshops are open to mental health professionals and graduate students. Some distinguished guest workshops are open to the general public. Workshops may be taken individually or as part of our comprehensive Advanced Certificate in Applied Existential Psychotherapy (AEP). We also offer practice, process and supervision/ consultation groups for qualified professionals.See All Our Workshops
