Person-Centered Psychotherapy Module II


Live Online Video Course

32 Hours

In Module II we will explore the magical moments of psychotherapy; I-Thou, congruence, and confrontation; personal knowledge in psychotherapy; empathy as a way of knowing and dialoguing; and the concept of As-If. We will address assumptions of the Rogerian era and humanistic psychology, as well as the phenomenal field, and self – identify, “No,” and “Q-Sort”. We will work with triads and dyads and group encounters.

Course Objectives

After completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the concepts of Magical Moments applied to psychotherapy.
  • Name the essential conditions for Magical Moments to happen.
  • Discuss the concept of I-Thou as postulated by Martin Buber, relating it to the magical moments of psychotherapy.
