Widening the human horizon to go beyond crisis

As the world is gradually plunged into a global existential crisis, not just because of the pandemic, but also in facing potential ecological disaster, a global climate crisis and increasing pressure on international migration, in view of old and new wars, it is vital to understand how our psychotherapy profession can ensure that we tackle the situation in a holistic and considerate manner. In this presentation we shall consider how existential philosophers and therapists are able to make sense of such situations, be they caused by politics, society, personal choice or natural catastrophes. We shall explore the impact of the shattering of our most reliable connections to the world and the loss of meaning that ensues. Then we shall see how we can rise to such limit situations, to shift upwards and find ways to thrive instead of being destroyed by the radical change and global transformation that has become inexorable.
