May 03, 2017 06:30pm -

Event Description

Humanistic Psychology Lecture Series

William James College is excited to announce the fifth lecture in the continuing lecture series that focuses 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.

Haunted by Combat:

A Humanistic Approach to Working with PTSD in Veterans

Wednesday, May 3, 2017 from 6:30- 8:30 pm

at William James College, Newton

In his book Haunted by Combat: Understanding PTSD in War Veterans, Dr. Krippner points out that “The devastating experience of PTSD is partially due to the invisibility of the problem’s roots and the loss of synchronicity with the immediate world. Combatants who come home to PTSD are hobbled by a psychic fragment that is the psychological equivalent of shrapnel, less important as a remnant of the event, which he or she may or may not remember, than it is as a presence in every moment.” This lecture will explore humanistic approaches to working with PTSD in veterans from Dr. Krippner’s vast therapeutic experience including his use of working with dreams and nightmares, as well as personal mythology.

Learning objectives:

Discuss humanistic approaches to working with PTSD

Examine the veterans’ experience and how they carry the traumas of combat

Explore Dr. Krippner’s use of personal mythology in psychotherapy
