Explorations in Anthroposophic Psychotherapy

Warming the Space: an Exploration of Empathic Resonance

June 4th, 2022, 10:30am-12:00pm ET

We understand empathic resonance as the foundational tool of psychotherapy, but are we aware of the subtle processes which take place?  This experiential webinar led by the faculty of AAP’s Anthroposophic Psychotherapy Certification Program will guide us into mutual exploration of these nuanced processes.

Motion and Emotion

September 24th, 2022, 10:30am-12:00pm ET

Explore the relationship between movement and emotion in this experiential webinar led by Alex Schneider, LMHC.  Somatic work is an important piece in a truly integrative psychotherapy.  Explore how movement and embodiment foster growth and healing, and how somatic work can be integrated into the psychotherapeutic process.  Includes Spacial Dynamics exercises.

The Pedagogical Law in Therapeutic Relationships

October 22nd, 2022, 10:30am-12:30pm ET

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

December 3rd, 2022, 10:30am-12:00pm ET

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 [email protected].

Understanding the Consequences of Rejected Cosmic Sacrifice

February 4th, 2023, 10:30am-12:00pm ET

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.

An additional event will take place in January 2023:

Creating a Community of Anthroposophic Psychotherapists

January 14th, 2023, 10:00am-12:30pm ET

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.

We look forward to meeting with you online!
