PC&E North America Person-Centered and Experiential Seminar and Encounter Group Friday May 19th to Sunday May 21, 2023
We would like to announce the 4th Annual Person-Centered and Experiential Seminar and Encounter Group Friday May 19th to Sunday May 21, 2023
Location TBD (could be in New York City or in the New York’s Hudson Valley)
Fundamental to the work of the psychologist Carl Rogers, the Person-Centered Approach, and other forms of experiential psychotherapy is the “Encounter Group.” Encounter Groups are a special kind of group experience with no leader, few rules, and no predetermined agenda.
One of the basic ideals of the Encounter Group is that members share the responsibilities and privileges of leadership within the group and each member grows to become an equal facilitator within the group experience.
This 4th annual weekend-long encounter group will be leaderless and is open to mental health professionals, students, academics, and other interested professionals.
Admission is free, but the size of this group is limited so you will need to reserve a spot to participate.
CE credit for psychologists is pending through New York State.
Topics to be covered are: Carl Rogers, Client-Centered Therapy, Person-Centered and Experiential Approaches, Encounter Groups, as well as other forms of Humanistic psychology and psychotherapeutic practice that are considered part of the Person-Centered Approach.
Learning objectives of this seminar are:
- To gain a comprehensive understanding of the history, theory, and practice of: Carl Rogers, Client-Centered Therapy, Person-Centered and Experiential Approaches, as well as other forms of Humanistic psychology and psychotherapeutic practice that are considered part of the Person-Centered Approach.
