Guillem Feixas
You can find the slides of Guillem Feixas' presentation at the plenary session on "Conteporary Approaches to Case Formulations" (which included also presentations by Dr. Franz Caspar and Rhonda Goldman) held Saturday 8th. of June at the SEPI (Society fo the Exploration of Psychotherapy Integration) International Conference held in Barcelona. This approach of case conceptualization is based in the person's own constructs and words. The symptom can be understood as some sort of "choice" in the context of conflicting alternatives. All this in line with the existential-phenomenological tradition:

Hi everyone. I've only recently joined and am not sure about the group etiquette, so please excuse me if this question is out of place.

I'm a PsyD student who just finished a course in humanistic and existential theories and practice. The previous semester I struggled with the object-relations folks; this semester I ate up the existential stuff and felt a lot of resonance with the humanists as well.

My question is about practice rather than theory. In our class we heard mostly that an existential outlook informs the therapist and thus the therapy, but it doesn't come with much in the way of technique. How does that fit with peoples' impression who are in this group? Are there existential techniques, and if so, where should I begin to study them?

Emmy van Deurzen Have a look at my books: Everyday Mysteries and Existential Counselling and Psychotherapy in Practice. Also co-authored book with Martin Adams: Skills in Existential Counselling and Psychotherapy. Also my website: www.emmyvandeurzen.com, which has a copy of my chapter on existential therapy from Dryden's textbook.

Charles Dupree Many thanks, I'll check them out! Just back from inter-semester break and ready to dig in again, and this is very helpful.

Hi to everyone who has joined the group. I hope you are beginning to get the hang of Mendeley and have noticed that you can build up your own reference library, which you can then use for essays and dissertations. You will see the facility of automatically processing references into the required style as well. NSPC uses Harvard, but sometimes when you submit a paper for publication you will be asked to change it to APA or something else, so it is very handy to get into the habit of recording all your references in your own library. This group is a place for posting good existential references, so you can share them with each other and insert them into your own library from here. Don't forget you can use the group for research discussions as well. I look forward to these!
