Event description

Description

Learn about the science and application of this groundbreaking form of psychotherapy.

Can psychotherapy help you uncover a sense of purpose and meaning in life? A deep desire in every human being is the search for a fulfilling life – one worthy of its time, endeavour and pain, a life with value and meaning. Although most therapies offer clients some tools to live a meaningful life, meaning-centred therapies explicitly and systematically help people do this.

A recently published review of 60 clinical trials found meaning-centered therapy (MCT) to be extremely effective in reducing psychological problems and improving quality of life. In this one day workshop, Dr Joel Vos, PhD, will give an introduction into this exciting new field; starting with the work of Viktor Frankl, to the latest scientific research on meaning in life. You’ll learn about the different skills practitioners use to help clients, and also how you can adopt these approaches in your own work and life.

Content

  • The science and theory behind MCT; an introduction to theories of meaning in life and the empirical evidence for meaning-centred practices
  • The therapeutic potential of meaning; why increasing meaning is associated with reduced psychological distress, decreased depression and anxiety, and improved emotional wellbeing
  • Applying meaning centred practices; systematic approaches for increasing meaning in life, work and relationships
  • Practical Exercises; a variety of phenomenological and existential skills exercises designed to help you develop basic meaning-centred practitioner competencies.

The course will contribute six hours of Continuing Professional Development.
