The Experiential Psychotherapy Project (EPP)

EPP is a community of focusing-oriented relational psychotherapists dedicated to learning, teaching and exploring experiential approaches to therapy. Creative dialogue and the cultivation of the individual uniqueness of each practitioner is at the heart of our project. Our integrative approaches interweave the personal and professional, the didactic and experiential. Our classes, workshops and events are designed to foster intellectual curiosity, clinical skills and supportive collegial connectedness.

Fundamentals Of Focusing-Oriented Relational Psychotherapy
With Charlotte Howorth, Ruth Havazelet and the EPP Faculty

This introductory course explores three interwoven dimensions of the therapist's participation In facilitating therapeutic process: being, thinking and doing. Each four week module takes up one of these dimensions. Our emphasis is on bringing together the embodied introspection of focusing and the vitalizing generativity of therapeutic relating. The integration of the theoretical and the experiential, the professional and the personal is pursued through the co creation of lively group discussion and various contemplative experiences, videos and demonstrations.

New class starting Fall 2015
Fee:  $60 per class
