Keynote 03 – Erving Polster, PhD interviewed by Michael Yapko, PhD – Beyond Psychotherapy: Living and Telling in Community

Living is composed of a supreme flow of experiences. Telling is the selective option to revisit this landscape and to reveal the accessibly hidden markers of a lifetime. Dr. Polster will show how a sharply pointed attention within a group process will light up our lives, a key element in a growing life focus cultural movement. Techniques and precedents for conducting this process will be addressed

  1. Apply therapy principles to the needs of people in their everyday lives.
  2. Create congregations of people to explore their life experiences together.
  3. Incorporate the concept of design and the creation of exercises in guiding the group experience.
