World Congress fo Existential Therapy 2015 Update.
We are just over one year away from the historic first World Congress for Existential Therapy. We hope that you will be able to print and circulate this newsletter to your colleagues and students.
Do not miss this pivotal moment in the history of Existential Psychotherapy: leading thinkers and practitioners from around the world will be visiting London to debate, teach and learn from each other’s perspectives. This is a truly global event, the beginning of a new international dialogue between local innovators, united by a determination to put an understanding of Being at the heart of their therapeutic work. The congress will host 3 days of inspiring key note speakers, debates, workshops and seminars allowing you to meet and debate experienced theorists and pioneers. Join the discussion and participate in Existential Therapy’s future.
Four days of events have been organised to encourage dialogue and the forging of new global partnerships.
