    Relationships are the primary psychological context of human life, as well as the source of much healing that occurs in therapy.  In this webinar with participatory elements, Susan Overhauser, Ph.D., will lead us through a look at various relationships, considering how the four sheaths (physical, etheric, astral, “I”) impact relational partners.  The primary focus will be on understanding the psychotherapeutic relationship.

      Soul-Care for the Therapist

      In its essence, psychotherapy is the art of healing the soul.  As psychotherapists, we care for the soul of the other.  However, compassion fatigue and burnout are prevalent among healthcare practitioners.  How does our profession impact our own soul life, and how do we care for it? This webinar will be led by Zheni Nasi, M.A., R.P. (Qualifying) with direct input from participants.

      To enliven our conversation, we ask that you send by November 18 a question and a soul-care practice you (may) have to admin@anthroposophicpsychology.org.

      The Full Curriculum can be previewed here.

      Creating a Community of Anthroposophic Psychotherapists

      Anthroposophic psychotherapy is a growing international movement gaining ground in North America.  This gathering serves as an opportunity for therapists who work out of anthroposophy to meet one another and share ideas about how we can support each other and the development of anthroposophic psychotherapy.  Participants will have a chance to introduce themselves and their professional work to the group.  A discussion will follow touching on many topics including the needs of practitioners, potential forms of collaboration, avenues for certification, and ways in which the Association for Anthroposophic Psychology can be of service. 

      This no-fee online gathering will not be recorded.

      The Full Curriculum can be previewed here.

      Understanding the Consequences of Rejected Cosmic Sacrifice

      Tonya Stoddard, LCSW, will lead us through a participatory imaginative journey exploring how cosmic evolutionary sequences led certain beings to be held back in their development and the consequences of these sacrifices and rejections for human psychology.  One result is an ever-deepening experience of egoism that has become the foundation for the incarnation of our I and its health and dysregulation.
