EHI's next workshop will be facilitated by Dr Kirk Schneider!


EHI provides a forum, a home, for those mental health professionals, scholars, and students who seek in-depth training in existential-humanistic theory and practice. EHI is for trainees who believe that in optimal psychotherapy, as Rollo May said, it is not this or that symptom, but "the life of the client" that is "at stake" — and that it is precisely this life that must be supported, accompanied and encountered.

This award is given by Division 32 of the APA to an institution, and an individual associated with an institution, that has made an outstanding and lasting contribution to humanistic psychology.




Training & Experiential Retreat Testimonials

"Having the opportunity to attend the EHI experience was such a gift!! Not only do I feel like I learned skills that have helped me in working more effectively with my clients- I feel it has changed me in the way I look at and appreciate more fully myself. Thanks again for the opportunity to be a part of EHI!!"
~ Dalana

"The use of transparency within therapeutic boundaries has influenced the work I am doing with my clients. I am more relaxed in session and I believe there is more connection between us when I find a way to be more revealing yet remain therapeutic."
~ Gloria"
