If you are a working psychotherapist and you’ve heard about Psychosynthesis, but don’t know much about it, or would like to deepen your understanding of it and how it can enhance your work with clients, then this experiential course is for you.
Psychosynthesis is a fully-fledged psychotherapeutic model that has its roots in psychoanalysis, with a transpersonal dimension, a positivist emphasis, and ways of understanding the personality such as the theory of subpersonalities. There are about 50 psychosynthesis practitioners on the island of Ireland, who trained mostly in three colleges; the now-closed Eckhart House in Dublin and, in London, the Institute of Psychosynthesis and the Psychosynthesis Trust.
However, its approach is also a very useful adjunct to existing models of psychotherapy, and it fits comfortably into the Humanistic and Integrative family.
It will be a 10-hour course spread over four Saturday afternoons in September/October 2016 from 2.30pm – 5pm:
- Saturday 10th September 2016
- Saturday 24th September 2016
- Saturday 1st October 2016
- Saturday 15th October 2016
The course will be experiential, and is designed for only six participants at a time, who are willing to explore and learn in a collaborative way.
The course will be run in bonhomie, 6 Capel Street, Dublin 1, on the top floor. Here is a map. (Sadly this means it is not suitable for those with reduced mobility.)
