- Existential–Humanistic Therapy Over Time – Dr. Kirk J. Schneider demonstrates this distinctly American expression of existential therapy. Emphasizing freedom, experiential reflection, and responsibility, this approach draws from Schneider’s existential–integrative framework. The goal of this therapy is to help clients free themselves from self-imposed limitations. The focus of the approach is here-and-now, which involves frequently asking clients to check in with their emotions and bodily sensations. By not only discussing, but experiencing the problems they face in-session, clients come to a deeper understanding of their authentic life goals, versus those imposed by others or by a rigid sense of self.
- Existential Therapy – Dr. Kirk J. Schneider demonstrates his existential–integrative model of therapy.

- The Psychodynamics of Liberation – Underneath the apparent separation of individuals there is a level of unity and interconnectedness. True liberation, suggests Kathleen Speeth, involves attaining an awareness of this level. In Part I of this program, Dr. Speeth enters into an intensive dialogue on the nature and meaning of liberation as viewed in both eastern and western traditions. In Part II, Dr. Speeth focuses on our tendency to sabotage ourselves — to act against our own best interests. She maintains that a distinction can be drawn between inner weaknesses for which we may forgive ourselves and those inner criminal impulses toward which we must remain forever vigilant.

Optimal Theory provides specific strategies to lead us out of this quagmire and on to a more just, sacred, sustainable world.
