Buddhism and Existential-Humanistic Therapy: The Importance of Interconnection
Lunch & Learn
Presented by Chuck Craytor, LPC
We live in a world of rapid change and an increasing sense of uncertainty. There is a deepening sense of isolation, resulting in more and more people retreating into their small tribe and lesser self. In my talk, we will explore the Buddhist teaching of Dependent Origination and its relationship with the Existential-Humanistic perspective. This talk will include research I conducted in graduate school while working in Moldova and how the EH perspective influences my work, even before I knew what EH was.
