Transpersonal Counselling for Curious Therapists

Pseudo-spirituality and pop-psychology are on the rise, and it’s impacting your clients. Are you prepared?

When it comes to exploring our spiritual landscape, traditional approaches in psychology and mental health fall short.

Many therapists feel nervous and ill-equipped when clients want to explore their religious beliefs, faith traditions, and spiritual paths.

Transpersonal Psychology was established over half a century ago, and was a response to the growing need for a deeper, more informed conversation about the evolution of human consciousness.

Most mental health professionals have woken up to the inter-connectivity of the mind and body, and many are starting to wonder about that third element of the human condition: the Spirit.

Without appropriate training in Transpersonal modalities and interventions, talking about this third thing with our clients can feel like we are fumbling in the dark, looking for an ever-moving light switch.

In this workshop, we will take an introductory look at the philosophy and approach of Transpersonal Psychology, including some of the risks and benefits, and provide tangible tools you can incorporate into your current practice. In the spirit of self-reflection, we will also explore our own biases and assumptions about human consciousness as therapists educated in the West. We will explore a simple model that will help us serve clients from a variety of spiritual and religious traditions, and gain confidence in navigating spiritual and existential conversations.

This LIVE 3-hour Continuing Education workshop is designed for new and seasoned therapists. The workshop will be recorded, and lifetime access to the recording and bonus materials are included in the registration fee.
