A one-day seminar facilitated by
Professor Ernesto Spinelli


Saturday 1 March 2014


FULL PROGRAMME
09.30   Registration and Coffee
10.00   

An overview of existential theory focusing on uncertainty
Uncertainty is a key component of existential thought and practice. It is seen as an inevitable outcome of the foundational principle of relatedness. This part of the seminar will introduce these key ideas and consider them within the context of an existential approach to therapy.
11.15   Coffee
11.45   

Working with existential polarities
Existential therapy places a great deal of emphasis on the exploration and clarification of the client's worldview. The existential worldview is considered from the standpoint of various relational polarities, or existential tensions. This part of the seminar will explore the ideas associated with existential polarities and consider their role and value within a therapeutic framework.
13.00   Lunch (please note that lunch is not included at this event)
14.15   

Working with uncertainty within the immediacy of the therapeutic encounter
Existential therapy emphasises the immediacy of the interactions and relations between therapist and client. In doing so, it urges the therapist to be willing to embrace the many uncertain possibilities and challenges that will arise within any therapeutic encounter. In effect, it asks therapists to consider their expertise within the framework of uncertainty. This part of the seminar will explore how therapists can become more open to the possibilities of uncertainty within their practice.
