Announcement about the Anthroposophic Psychotherapy course
The current course on Anthroposophic Psychotherapy, Psychiatric Disorders (Children and Adults), and Psychosomatics which began in the autumn of 2014 finished November 2016.
In view of this we have decided that it is prudent to pause and take stock before commencing the second course. It is anticipated that this will begin in 2017 or early 2018 and that it will form the core of a newly developing Centre for Psychological Therapy and Human Development at Emerson College which, in the meantime, will be organising conferences and events with leading counselling and psychotherapy practitioners.
The Centre adopts a holistic approach to psychological problems and human development. It responds to the challenges of materialism, intellectualism, intergenerational trauma and globalization and their impact on both the mental and physical health of human beings and the health of the planet. It emphasises the possibilities of human evolution and growth in this age of transition and aims to contribute to building the seeds for renewal and transformation.
The course is a post-qualifying course and has been specifically designed for people who already have a qualification and clinical experience in psychological therapy (counselling, psychotherapy, clinical psychology, counselling psychology) or psychiatry. UK applicants should also note that, in order to be accepted on the course, it will be necessary to show that you are a BACP accredited counsellor, a UKCP or BCP registered psychotherapist, a BPS chartered clinical psychologist, a BPS chartered counselling psychologist or a BMC registered psychiatrist – or that you are working towards one of these.
The Centre and the course are both inspired by the spiritual scientific research of Rudolf Steiner. The course adopts a holistic approach to counselling and psychotherapy and so is bio-psycho-social-spiritual in orientation. There is a small but growing knowledge base for this work both in the UK and the United States which is introducing this work to the English-speaking world.
