I was recently asked to briefly define more clearly what existential therapy entails.
Existential therapy suggests that as human beings we are alone in the world and that we create our own meanings. In addition, we must assume responsibility for the choices we make and their outcomes. Existential therapy helps individuals to create meaning, develop responsible decision making, and reduce anxiety and depression in regards to feelings of alienation. Existential therapy looks for the benevolent capacity within human beings but is also realistic in that we are often not genuine and make faulty decisions.
