A model of psychotherapy that is counter to many of the prevailing models being taught today, the practice of contemporary gestalt therapy often results in resolution of symptoms with patients feeling seen, met and known.
Contemporary Gestalt Therapy is grounded in the present moment emergent experience, a co-created relational perspective between therapist, patient and their cultures, and a creative experimental attitude toward the therapeutic process.
We will offer a sampling of how gestalt therapists work and share some concepts and theory along the way. With a focus on present experience, relational awareness, and cultural context and an emphasis on the interdependence of the body and the mind, participants will be introduced to some of the fundamental principles of Gestalt Therapy.
This workshop is for students, trainees, beginner psychotherapists and those who are established in their career.
