An Existential-Humanistic approach to psychotherapy can be a foundation for all therapists seeking to do deep and life-changing work with their clients. The E-H approach is based on core ways of being and working with clients that help facilitate greater awareness, greater sense of choice, increased agency and adaptiveness and a deeper connection to self and others all in the service of healing and growing. There are core capacities and skills an E-H therapist uses to help clients effectively explore and work through their existential predicaments so they can more fully access what deeply matters to them. 

In this 15-hour online training, leading instructors in the E-H field will provide theoretical explanation and experiential opportunities for the development and/or strengthening of skills and capacities that are not only core to the E-H approach but can also support therapists of many other modalities cultivate a foundation for optimizing their technical skills.

Topics covered include: 

  • The cultivation of presence as both the ground of therapy and one of its primary objectives 
  • The focus on the "living moment" in working with the "here-and-now" experience of clients staying with what presents itself phenomenologically rather than employing theoretical interventions 
  • The differentiation between primary, direct experience and secondary, interpretive experience - and the emphasis on working with phenomenological experience 
  • The meaning-making process and the formation of the Self-and-World Construct helping client and therapist understand identity construction and de-construction 
  • How to work with the client's ways of being in the world and how to utilize the therapist-client relationship to help shift unhelpful ways of being 
  • How to identify and work through clients' inner battles in order to support their longings to emerge, and feel more choice-ful and psychospiritually whole 
  • Integrating and embodying your theoretical beliefs and authentic sense of self in your work as a therapist 


Who is This Training For?

This training is for licensed/pre-licensed therapeutic professionals and students currently enrolled in Master's or Doctorate programs in related fields. 

Students, psychologists, MFTs, social workers, counselors, psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, and doctors are all encouraged to attend!

This training is ideal for those who have not yet had any intensive training in E-H therapy or for those who have and are seeking a refresher or reinforcement of what they've learned: this training works in and of itself but can also be a precursor to the longer residential training EHI holds or even a helpful follow-up to the residential training. 

*Please Note: 

This is a 2-1/2 day mini-intensive workshop, not the longer course, "E-H Therapy: Principles of Practice," which is an experiential training course offered in our Certificate program and historically held as a residential retreat for 6 days at Westerbeke Ranch. May's training workshop covers core E-H psychotherapy skills and can be a precursor to the longer training course but it is not a substitute for "E-H Therapy: Principles of Practice"  which is a requirement towards earning EHI's Certificate in the Foundations of E-H Therapy Practice.

Our Facilitators

EHI Instruction Team

EHI Faculty, emphasize the key ingredients of the E-H approach, including empathy, acceptance, and genuineness, to model how trainees can create safe, collaborative and life-changing therapeutic encounters. They demonstrate how the therapeutic relationship, in and of itself is a vehicle for healing and change and how therapeutic "presence" cultivates sensitivity and appropriate responsiveness to clients emotions, relational patterns and inner worlds. These two essential principles – working directly with the therapeutic relationship and working experientially in the "here and now" - are the foundational blocks of E-H therapy and EHI training.

I also understand that I can leave this workshop at any time and that I am not required to participate in any exercises the facilitator suggests.
