Communication Skills Training, Existential-Humanistic, Existential Analysis

Communication Skills Training is a valuable investment in a world where technology has taken the place of verbal, eye-to-eye meetings. Misunderstandings have become common-place and lead to unnecessary breakdown in relationships.

People who feel that they know what they want to say, but don't know how to explain it, can benefit from Communication skills training. Communication skill can often mean the difference between effectively and ineffectively dealing with difficult people.

Communication skills training also help people to develop as people, and to prosper in their careers. Whether you want to be a better team member, or develop as a public speaker or educator, communication skills training will help you increase confidence levels and help you to communicate clearly and efficiently.

Existential-Humanistic psychotherapies emphasize a collaborative approach to the understanding of the client's full experience rather than just the symptom, thoughts or behaviour. Psychological problems are viewed as the result of a restricted ability to make authentic, meaningful, and self-directed choices about how to live. Consequently, interventions are aimed at increasing client self-awareness and self-understanding. The key words for existential-humanistic therapy are acceptance and growth, responsibility and freedom.

Existential Analysis helps clients to address emotional issues by taking responsibility for past decisions that caused emotional reactions to develop. The therapist will guide the client to accept fears, and equips the client with skills and actions to overcome obstacles.

The client will learn how to take control of their life direction and to design the course wisely. By creating a sense of liberation in the client, he or she can let go of negative emotions, and instead allow him or her to embrace a life full of curiosity and wonder. As a result, life becomes a journey of excitement that needs to be embraced and lived to the full.

Through focusing on the client's future choices, the therapist can help the client explore options and understand the implications of past choices or beliefs that brought about current circumstances. That can be used as a springboard for better introspection and keener insight into the self.
