Saybrook University and the Existential Humanistic Institute are pleased to announce that Kirk Schneider and Orah Krug will be speaking about their most recent publication, Existential-Humanistic Therapy, on Thursday night at Saybrook’s June Residential Conference.

Existential-Humanistic Therapy provides an in-depth survey of contemporary existential-humanistic (E-H) theory, practice, and research. In particular, this uniquely American version of existential therapy, currently experiencing a renaissance, highlights E-H therapy’s historical development, theoretical underpinnings, and practical applications alongside the very latest in process and outcome research. This is the first text in existential-humanistic therapy to be published by the American Psychological Association, and as such, represents recognition of the E-H approach.  Kirk Schneider and Orah Krug will sign books after their presentation.
