AgeSong hosts the Existential Humanistic Institute’s (EHI’s) 6th Annual EHI Conference this Friday and Saturday, November 16 and 17. EHI is a program of Pacific Institute, a non-profit organization. Those who attended the Poetics of Aging Conference last November know that this is a conference not to be missed.

The conference is also a training venue for our yearlong certificate program. Upon successful completion, students in the program are awarded a certificate in the Foundations of Existential-Humanistic Practice. The “certificate track” will offer current and prospective students 12 hours of E-H therapy training, organized around the conference theme and taught by our nationally recognized faculty. To learn more about the certificate program and the 12 hour certificate track curriculum, visit the EHI website.
