Description

Description:

Psychotherapy, an originally private medical procedure, faces two immediate challenges: 1) an asocial pharmaceutical ethos and 2) its own populist success, which now call out for a more inclusive format. The latter represents a growing option for life-long large groups tapping the innermost sensibilities of people and creating the embodiment of belonging.

 

Educational Objectives:

  1. To identify two of the four processes shared by religion and psychotherapy.
  2. To describe how the major mission of psychotherapy can be met by creating Life Focus Communities.
