Friday, 6:30pm - 7:00pm Check-in/Registration
Friday, 7pm-8pm Keynote*: To Live With Inner Consent – An Existential Analytical Approach to a Fulfilling Life
Alfried Längle, Vienna

*CEs pending
Human beings strive for happiness. We all want to have a good life. But how can we reach this goal? Upon what does it depend to get fulfillment in life? – The good life depends upon much more from ourselves than we often think. In large part, it depends upon really becoming ourselves. Only when we can make use of what we are essentially, in the deep inner self, and only if we can thus bring ourselves to the world, "to existence," can we get back a feeling that all our endeavors are worth being lived.
The concept of "inner consent" is key to such existential access, or the life well lived. It embraces our freedom as well as our relationship and feelings, our perception of the world's reality and possible development in the future including the meaning of existence. This feeling of inner consent reflects our basic capacity to deal with the world and ourselves.
Further, it forms a matrix for motivation and practical guidance of life but also for the understanding and treatment of psychopathology. In short, the question of inner consent forms the basis for the structural model of modern Existential Analytical Psychotherapy.
Friday, 8pm-9pm Social Hour: Mingle, Nosh and Network

Saturday, December 1st 
9:00AM - 5:30PM

Saturday, 10am - 1pm*: Expanding Humanistic Practice with Existential Analysis and Logotherapy
Alfried Längle, Vienna

*CEs pending
This workshop focuses on building a bridge between the given humanistic understanding of treatment and the add-ons by Existential Analysis and Logotherapy. Furthermore, it offers the opportunity to arrive at a closer view of four key existential themes. These four themes derive from a phenomenological understanding of human experience, and form an inescapable life-challenge with which each person must confront. They are: the world, being alive, being a person, and needing meaning.
The workshop will focus on the application of these themes to psychotherapy and their implication for psychopathology. Thus, it opens access to introspective uses of the existential themes and for experiments in everyday living. A demonstration of the approach as well as small group work will be included.
1pm-2:30pm LUNCH BREAK- On our own
2:30pm-4:30pm EHI Panel with Alfried
4:30pm-5:30pm Q&A / Closure
