Event description

Description

What is an encounter/ person-centered group?

The Person Centered Approach with its related encounter movement have been established by Carl Rogers and became wildly popular in the psychotherapeutic field. Rogers, as a therapist, has emphasized the importance of empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard as core conditions for personal acceptance and growth in therapy, giving a new meaning of being a therapist, and how to encounter each other in a deep, real, human level.

The encounter groups are accompanied by experienced facilitators, who are also participants of the group. Throughout the whole process, the group itself creates what happens in the here and now, without special frames or rules.

It is an excellent field to experience ourselves and the others in a deeper emotional level, sharing thoughts, feelings, and common moments together. Most of the participants report about getting rid of their own masks and everyday roles, and encountering the others in a new, different way.

“There is no organised encounter group. There is simply a freedom of expression - of feelings and thoughts - on any personally relevant issue.” (Carl Rogers)

Cross Cultural Challenges

Our event is an international event, therefore we would like to encourage us to have a look at the challenges:

  • What does it mean that we come from different or similar places?

  • (Where) do diversity and unity meet?

  • How do we perceive ourselves / our self concepts in the context of a foreign language and culture?

We believe that the here and now will guide us to feelings, questions, answers and experiences we need to encounter this weekend.

Please be aware that our main language will be English, and official translators will not be present.
