● Broad range of backgrounds, methods, and traditions of interventions into thinking brought together for a collaborative professional research ● Intense experimentation with a variety of methods and setups ● Comparative critique of underlying assumptions, orientations, and ethics ● Creative adventure for experienced practitioners
Building upon the 1-year General Track, the Research Track in Counselling is oriented professionally. It is addressed to experienced practitioners who are trained and active in conducting interactive interventions into the thinking of others in a variety of settings (e.g. counselling, coaching, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, consulting, mentoring etc). The central objective of the programme is for such professionals to revise, refine, and enrich the conceptual foundations and methods of their work through collaborative experimentation, exposure, and systematic review in a transdisciplinary intellectual milieu.
This informs the following specific learning and training objectives:
- Objective 1: The participants will critically understand a diverse range of the existing methods and paradigms of interventions into thinking ( i. ) in the common and differentiating features underlying their worldviews and conceptualisations, (i i .) the axiomatic distinctions that ground each paradigm, and ( iii .) the relationships between the philosophical historical and cultural roots of various methods on one hand and the deontological and operational structures enacted by each on the other hand;
- Objective 2: The participants will learn to systematically expose and address the presuppositions that guide the interventions as they are being conducted in their own practice;
- Objective 3: The participants will enrich their practice with a new repertoire of skills and sensibilities for addressing and orienting a variety of cognitive processes and patterns of thinking which diverge from the most frequently assumed normative trajectories;
- Objective 4: The participants will make creative contributions to their respective professional fields by introducing novel interdisciplinary approaches.
