Applications Now Being Accepted for New Certificate Program in Existential-Humanistic Therapy!

The Existential Humanistic Institute (EHI) is pleased to announce a new and unprecedented program leading to a Certificate in the Foundations of Existential-Humanistic Practice.

This certificate program, a combination of distance and residential learning, will provide students with: a foundational competency in E-H therapeutic principles and skills—a competency that researcher Bruce Wampold suggests could be a basis for all effective therapy. Moreover, by offering a mentoring experience, the EHI faculty encourages the development of “the whole person,” appreciating that “psychotherapy is an art as much as a science,” as James Bugental posited.

The faculty, among them, Orah Krug, PhD, Kirk Schneider, PhD, and Nader Shabahangi, PhD are all acknowledged experts in their field—having taught and written widely on the subject of E-H theory and practice. Drs. Schneider and Krug are also faculty members of Saybrook University and are co-authors of the APA text, Existential-Humanistic Therapy (2010).

The unique learning format affords U.S. and international students an opportunity to enroll. EHI is currently accepting applications, which can be found at
