There is a professionally familiar dichotomy between the experience of an actual person to person relationship, on the one hand, and the transpersonal expansion. The latter is often given a special place in the therapeutic repertoire but, in actuality, they are overlapping experiences, Drs. Houston and Polster will each tell how these perspectives enter into their work, with an accompanying discussion.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the components of each where they may normally be indistinguishable.
  2. Discuss important implications for meaningfulness.
