Gestalt Theory, Therapy, Technique: An Introduction to the Gestalt Approach

This is an introductory workshop for those interested in Gestalt therapy one of the most dynamic and enduring theories in psychotherapy. In this workshop, we experientially explore and discuss the major concepts and interventions of Gestalt Therapy - which emphasizes the primacy of here-and-now experience and the unity of body, mind, and environment. Highlighted areas include the importance of the dialogic therapist/client relationship, awareness, body cues and breathing, polarities and the use of the empty chair, dreamwork and group work. Participants will learn theory and technique through lecture, demonstration, and facilitated experiential exercises to help broaden their way of working with clients.
