The three Day Contemporary Gestalt Therapy Training Workshop (9:30am - 5::00pm Oct 5,6,7,2018) will begin with brief theory lectures - encouraging questions, comments and comparisons with different psychotherapy models within Gestalt Therapy as well as outside of Gestalt Therapy (contemporary psychoanalytic, person centered, integrative, CBT, existential, systemic, post modern, evidenced based, etc.). This will be followed by hands on live clinical work with volunteer participants having the opportunities to work on their own personal issues with either Bob or Rita, or, to be therapist themselves with live supervision with one or both of the Resnicks.
This is an opportunity to see world renowned Gestalt Therapy trainers work live followed by comments, questions, discussion and comparisons. Theory, methodology and technique will all be addressed. An exquisitely process-oriented therapy, Gestalt Therapy maintains the flexibility to integrate new ideas and perspectives from many sources thereby encouraging continual perceptual reorganization while maintaining its updated evolving vitality. The workshop will be both experiential and didactic training.The Resnicks are particularly skillful in distilling and presenting complicated theory in plain English in an integrative manner.
