1 year experiential training in contemporary Gestalt therapy
This I year program provides trainees with an introduction to the key concepts of Gestalt therapy: Contact/Awareness, Phenomenology, Field Theory & Dialogue. Experiential in nature, it offers trainees an opportunity to explore themselves through the lens of Gestalt therapy, with a focus on the development of self-awareness in relationship with others and the environment.
This course is suitable for anyone who wants to engage with gestalt therapy for personal development reasons, or for practitioners who want to incorporate gestalt therapy into their practice without the skills-practicum requirements of the TRIA post-graduate training.
Emphasis is placed on group learning and exploration of group dynamics within the training cohort, providing an opportunity to understand basic group facilitation skills.
Attention is also paid to Gestalt links with Ecotherapy. The Gestalt approach requires that the personal development of the trainee is central for the development of competent practice, and harnesses the value of our instinctual need to live in close harmonious relationship with the natural world for mutual wellbeing.
The training for 2021 takes place over 7 weekends in the following format:
2 x 3 day weekend intensive
3 x 2 day weekends
2 x 3 day residential intensive
The fee for the 1 year course is $6995, Early bird $6500
