Human beings strive for happiness. We all want to have a good life. But how can we reach this goal? From what does it depend to get fulfillment in life? – Good life depends much more from ourselves than we often think. The basis in that is our becoming really ourselves. Only when we can make use of what we are essentially, in the deep inner self, and only if we can thus bring ourselves to the world, “to existence”, we get back a feeling of all our endeavors being worth to be lived.
As a key to such an existential access figures the concept of inner consent. It encompraises the human’s freedom as well as our relationship and feelings, our perception of the world’s reality and possible development in the future including the meaning of existence. This feeling of inner consent reflects our basic capacity of dealing with the world and ourselves. In it are summarized the fundamental existential motivations.
They not only form a matrix for motivation and practical guidance of life but also for the psychopathological understanding of psychic disorders and provide a background for clinical interventions. They represent the structural model of modern Existential Analytical Psychotherapy.
