Now, how does this work?
This training has 2 parts: The theory section and the Experiential section (which is optional but HIGHLY recommended to get the best out of the training, I’ll explain why in a bit)
The theory section is divided in 4 Modules. The information is presented in interactive videos, and I’ll be voice behind them! These videos can be watched at your own pace.
Here is the Curriculum:
- What Gestalt Therapy is about
- Basic Concepts
- Goals in Gestalt Therapy
- How to facilitate change with Gestalt Therapy
During this first module, we go through important concepts that need to be internalized in order to make sense of the techniques that we would go over during Modules 3 & 4. You’ll have the chance to learn how this approach is different by understanding the ongoing goals we work on when we implement Gestalt Therapy and how healing is achieved.
- Cycle of Satisfaction of Needs
- Interruptions of the Cycle of satisfaction of Needs and how to address them
- To become aware and neurosis in Gestalt Therapy
- The Therapist and their role in the Gestaltic Encounter
This module starts off with the cycle of satisfaction of needs or like I like to call it “The DSM of Gestalt Therapy” as it will help us conceptualize our client’s presenting problem in order to choose appropriate interventions in order to achieve therapeutic goals. We also learn about the interruptions in this cycle and ways to address these blockages.
- The Empty Chair Technique
- Recovering Projections
- Integrating Polarities
- Dream Analysis
- Art in Gestalt Therapy
This is where the fun starts! During this module, you’ll be able to learn about the most popular Gestalt technique out there: The Empty Chair AND MANY MORE! We would go over important considerations to implement these techniques (as the empty chair for example, is more than just a dialogue) and specific steps when using these interventions.
- The Wounded Child
- Healing our Wounded Child
- Gestalt Therapy in Couples
- Gestalt Techniques for Couples
During this last module, you will learn about how to explore and address deeply wounded aspects of your clients. Aspects that cause constant toxic cycles that provoke emotional suffering and living in a constant state of imbalance. You’ll also have the chance to learn about Gestalt Therapy in couples and some Gestalt Techniques for couples.
