Description: Clients of any age often are existentially alone- sometimes suffering unbearably, although they may be surrounded by others in couples, families, and communities: school, church, work, and more… and with a caring compassionate therapist. Life, community, and global circumstances can intensify the sense of being alone. This training is based on the premise that clinicians usually already hold an expansive repertoire of theoretical wisdom that they may not consciously draw upon in therapy. As such, the trainer will prompt participants to identify and utilize- translate the theoretical wisdom they hold conceptually for practical therapeutic interventions and strategies to meet client needs for self-esteem, identity, connection, relationships, and meaning.
