Intrapsychic Humanism Seminar Series

We will be marking our 20th Anniversary with the launch of
new initiative, a Continuing Education Seminar Series

Intrapsychic Humanism
Core Concepts and Clinical Applications

The Intrapsychic Humanism Society is offering two four-week seminars in the winter and fall of 2022. These seminars will be led by highly experienced clinicians who will combine informal presentation with discussion formats to facilitate learning. Participants will gain an in-depth understanding of Intrapsychic Humanism's central theoretical concepts and will learn to apply that knowledge in clinical contexts. The intensive study of Intrapsychic Humanism will allow participants to gain a working knowledge of this original, comprehensive, and broadly applicable psychology.
