Society for Existential Analysis

Elena Zanger

I would like to report to your Journal's readers that this Society was founded in July 1988. It will provide a forum and become an umbrella organisation for all those interested in the application of the phenomenological approach to the analysis of existence. It is open to psychotherapists, counsellors, psychoanalysts, philosophers, and all others concerned with the advancement of this approach.

Our first full day conference was held at Regent's College on 3 December 1988 and we were delighted at the response we had. Almost 120 people attended and many of those present decided to join in the adventure.

The morning was chaired by Haya Oakley and started with remarks from the Chair of the Society, Emmy van Deurzen-Smith. We then heard two papers addressing the question ‘What is Existential Analysis?’. John Heaton and Emmy van Deurzen-Smith took us through the background of Existential philosophy and its relevance to psychotherapy and counselling.

Emmy van Deurzen-Smith chaired four papers in the afternoon session.
