Bob Edelstein, LMFT, MFT - 90 min WorkshopA core tenet of the existential humanistic philosophy is that presence is a key to guiding therapeutic choices. In this workshop, the presenter will explore six philosophical frames that support the existential humanistic therapist to be more fully present with their clients. This in turn facilitates the clients to be more present with themselves and with the therapist. The six philosophical frames explored are:
- Being versus Doing
- Identifying and exploring existential themes
- Process versus content
- Holding the container
- Everything is everything
- Inclusion, not amputation
