The Soul of Existential Therapy: Dialogues with Professors Miles Groth and Todd DuBose.
Presentation and Group Discussion – November the 5th, 2020 at 3 pm – 5 pm.
The Soul of Existential Therapy: Dialogues between professors Miles Groth and Todd DuBose (SEA, 2020) considers the state of the mental health profession in general and existential therapy specifically, the situation in the training institutes, and uses these as a background to discuss what existential therapy is in its most uncomplicated form, its soul. It is the second in the SEA’s Dialogues series. It follows on from the first dialogue by Ernesto Spinelli, a leading existential writer, and Giancarlo Buffardi, an Italian psychiatrist. Like its predecessor, Soul of Existential Therapy comprises ten email conversations between both men (20 emails in total), and a response from the editor, Loray Daws.
