Friday, 7:00 pm-8:00 pm Keynote: To Live with Inner Consent – An Existential Analytical Approach to a Fulfilling Life
Presented by Dr. Alfried Längle, Vienna
1 CE*

Human beings strive for happiness. We all want to have a good life. But how can we reach this goal? Upon what does it depend to get fulfillment in life? – The good life depends upon much more from ourselves than we often think. In large part, it depends upon really “becoming ourselves.” Only when we can make use of what we are essentially, in the deep inner self, and only if we can thus bring ourselves to the world, "to existence," can we get back a feeling that all our endeavors are worth being lived.

The concept of "inner consent" is key to such existential access, or the life well lived. It embraces our freedom as well as our relationship and feelings, our perception of the world's reality and possible development in the future including the meaning of existence. This feeling of inner consent reflects our basic capacity to deal with the world and ourselves.

Further, it forms a matrix for motivation and practical guidance of life but also for the understanding and treatment of psychopathology. In short, the question of inner consent forms the basis for the structural model of modern Existential Analytical Psychotherapy.

Saturday, 10:00am – 1:00pm Workshop: Expanding Humanistic Practice with Existential Analysis and Logotherapy
Presented by Dr. Alfried Längle, Vienna
2.75 CEs*

This workshop focuses on building a bridge between the given humanistic understanding of treatment and the add-ons by Existential Analysis and Logotherapy. Furthermore, it offers the opportunity to arrive at a closer view of four key existential themes. These four themes derive from a phenomenological understanding of human experience, and form an inescapable life-challenge with which each person must confront. They are: the world, being alive, being a person, and needing meaning.

The workshop will focus on the application of these themes to psychotherapy and their implication for psychopathology. Thus, it opens access to introspective uses of the existential themes and for experiments in everyday living. A demonstration of the approach as well as small group work will be included.

Conference Sponsor:
Pacific Institute


Pacific Institute offers ground-breaking programs in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our beautiful elder residential care community, AgeSong WoodPark, forms the home and core of our work. Eldership Academy Press, the Existential-Humanistic Institute, and the Gero-Wellness Internship Program make up our other programs. Each of these is dedicated to teach and educate health care professionals, carepartners, and laypersons a humanistic, process-oriented model for working with people in need of care and support. We understand that a non-pathologizing, non-judgmental attitude towards people in need of help is as important for care to take place as is skill and expertise.

Conference CoSponsor:
The Society of Humanistic Psychology


The society represents a constellation of "humanistic psychologies" that includes the earlier Rogerian, transpersonal and existential orientations as well as the more recently developing perspectives of phenomenological, hermeneutic, constructivist, feminist and postmodern (social constructionist) psychologies. The society seeks to contribute to psychotherapy, education, theory, research, epistemological diversity, cultural diversity, organization, management, social responsibility and change.
Humanistic psychology aims to be faithful to the full range of human experience. Its foundations include philosophical humanism, existentialism and phenomenology. In the science and profession of psychology, humanistic psychology seeks to develop systematic and rigorous methods of studying human beings, and to heal the fragmentary character of contemporary psychology through an ever more comprehensive and integrative approach.
