James Bugental

James BugentalBugental’s influence maybe isn’t as well known as that of Rollo May and Viktor Frankl, but it is no less significant. Bugental, himself, was influenced greatly by May. In fact, it was May’s influence that led Bugental to what he calls and existential humanistic approach to therapy. While Bugental contributed some significant writing and theory development to existential thought, more important is the video tapes on which Bugental is featured. These videos provide excellent therapy illustrations of what this approach to therapy looks like.
