Contents:
Part 1 Existentialism -- Inception to Present Day; 1 What is existentialism?; 2 Historical background, philosophical foundations; 3 The basis of an existential approach to therapy; 4 Existential therapy here and now; Part 2 Theoretical Assumptions; 5 Existence and essence and the concept of self; 6 Being-in-the-world; 7 Being-in-the-world-with-others; 8 The universals of human existence; 9 The ontic and the ontological.
Summary: Less of an orientation and more a way of understanding the challenges of being human, existential therapy draws on rich and diverse philosophical traditions and ways of viewing the world. Traditionally it has been seen as difficult to summarise and comprehend and the air of mystery surrounding existential ideas has been exacerbated by the dense language often used by philosophers and practitioners. Existential Therapy: 100 Key Points and Techniques provides a comprehensive and accessible guide to a fascinating and exciting body of knowledge, and the therapeutic approach it informs. Divided in.
