A Conversation w/Dr. Irvin Yalom: Reflections on Practicing Existential & Humanistic Psychotherapy

Sep 16, 2015 07:15pm -

Event Description



Humanistic Psychology Lecture Series

William James College is excited to announce a new lecture series that will focus on the current role of Humanistic Psychology in the context of the continually changing dynamics within the field of psychology and mental health practice. While evidence based treatments and behavioral protocols have come to prominence in recent years, humanistic psychology remains at the core of the human transaction and process that is psychotherapy. This lecture series aims to bring esteemed colleagues from around the country whose primary focus is on the humanistic perspective in psychotherapy to help articulate why this perspective remains so vital and necessary in contemporary clinical practice.

A Conversation with Dr. Irvin Yalom:

Reflections on almost 60 years of Practicing Existential and Humanistic Psychotherapy

Wednesday September 16, 2015 | 7:15- 9:00 pm

The first William James College Humanistic Psychology Lecture will be a live video conference with Dr. Irvin Yalom in Palo Alto, California at the Newton Marriott Hotel in Newton, MA.

Dr. Bob Childs will interview Dr. Yalom, in front of an audience of William James College students, faculty, alumni and field education professionals, about his experiences as a clinician in a career that has spanned almost 60 years. The audience will be invited to ask Dr. Yalom questions.

Don’t miss this very special opportunity.
