Interested in the EHI Experientials?

Experiential Retreat Details

The four day experiential residentials are the core of EHI's training. They allow participants who are graduate students in psychology or counseling and licensed professionals to come together in a safe environment, get to know one another intimately, and experience how E-H therapy is practiced up close and personally. Each of the two experiential residentials involves a combination of relationship-building, learning of theoretical foundations, and first-hand experiences wherein theory comes to life. At times, this may involve faculty members demonstrating their way of working with clients and inviting commentary; at other times, participants work in dyads with each other, and receive direct feedback from a faculty member as they work. Through these various ways of learning, participants begin to drop into a deeper, more embodied sense of what E-H therapy has to offer. The experiential training also provide participants a way of deeply understanding how work on themselves mirrors their ability to work with clients.

EHI Offers Two Programs Where Eligible Student Engage in the Experiential Retreats

Certificate in the Foundations of Existential-Humanistic Practice: The intention of the certificate program coursework is to provide students with such a foundational core by integrating both theory and practice into each course. By gaining competency in these fundamental principles, the student will have a solid core of practice and have a foundation from which additional modalities such as a cognitive-behavioral approach can be employed. The program is intended as a mentoring experience that emphasizes the development of the trainee as a whole person, appreciating that psychotherapy is an art as much as a science.

EHI Modular Training Program: This individualized training program is for those primarily interested in the experiential trainings that we offer. Once accepted into the program, participants may sign up to attend the two experientials, and may also opt to participate in video consultations with our faculty
