EHTP 2047 - Existential Psychotherapies III: James Bugental and the Existential-Humanistic Tradition


This course will be of interest to students who want to explore existential-humanistic psychotherapy as understood by James Bugental, one of psychology’s most respected and talented practitioners. Bugental held that life’s existential contingencies could often overwhelm causing a loss of centeredness, agency, and self-directedness. By focusing in the here-and-now, Bugental intended to promote inner presence, agency, and responsibility assumption in a client. Bugental’s experiential approach is both powerful and effective-and is rarely found in traditional therapies. Though open to all students, this course also satisfies the Clinical Interventions III/IV requirement in the Clinical Psychology degree program, with Clinical Interventions I & II as prerequisites. 3 credit(s)
