GETME is forming a cohort of Gestalt Therapy trainees. We’re looking for 6-9 therapists who want to learn this creative and powerful approach to helping.
Gestalt Therapy is a holistic approach that rests on several foundations:
- The Phenomenological Perspective
- The Field Theory Perspective
- The Existential Perspective
- The Dialogic Relationship
In the context of an authentic and committed relationship, with exquisite attention to client awareness, and a warm, open, experimental attitude, the Gestalt Therapist facilitates processes whereby clients free themselves to live more vital and satisfying lives.
Through a combination of lecture, discussion, demonstrations, and large & small group exercises, the Year-1 training will give participants an intellectual and experiential grounding in Gestalt Therapy theory.
Gestalt Therapy Training: Year 1
During this year, we will focus on the basics of the theory, covering such topics such as:
- The Here & Now
- The Contact Boundary
- The Contact Cycle
- Interruptions to the Contact Boundary
- Organismic Self-Regulation
- The Paradoxical Theory of Change
The group will meet twenty Tuesdays, from 9am to 12:15pm. Here are the dates:
- September 7 & 21
- October 5 & 19
- November 2, 16, & 30
- December 14
- January 4 & 18
- February 1 & 15
- March 1, 15 & 29
- April 12 & 26
- May 10 & 24
- June 7
Each meeting will be three hours long, plus one 15-minute break. Thus we’ll meet for a total of 60 hours during the course of the year.
Where: This program will be held live, as long as there are no re-emergent pandemic concerns during the time frame of the training. If necessary, we will complete the program using Zoom. Assuming that doesn’t happen, here’s the address:
95 High Street, Suite 207, Portland, ME, 04101
Cost: $1500 for 20 three-hour meetings.
A Certificate of 60 Contact Hours will be issued upon completion of this program.
Trainer: Tom Kubasik, LCPC
