PY 466 - Basic Intervention: Existential-Humanistic


In this course, students will learn the theory and evidence-based practice of five perspectives within the Existential-Humanistic tradition, namely Existential, Person-Centered, Gestalt (including somatics), Transpersonal Psychology, and Critical Psychology. The application of these perspectives to assessment, case formulation, treatment planning, and therapy process will be explored. Students will have the opportunity to acquire basic skills such as the existential understanding of, and engagement with, lived meaning, agency and authenticity; present-centered awareness; focusing; and hot-seat/empty-chair, psycho-dramatic techniques. Scholarship from diverse sources supporting the relevance and efficacy of these approaches is reviewed. In keeping with foundational principles of this approach, students will be encouraged to explore both the professional and personal relevance of these perspectives. (3 credit hours)
