Three-Day Contemporary Gestalt Therapy
Training Workshop for Therapists and Mental Health Professionals
Film Screening of Both Couples and Individual Therapy Sessions:
On Thursday evening, October 4, 2018, there will be a film screening and discussion with Rita and Bob Resnick of both actual couples and individual therapy sessions with real people, dealing with real issues, with real therapists and in real time. There is no extra charge for this screening for workshop participants. The screening is open to the public and especially therapists and students. See “Details” for location, times and cost (for non-workshop participants).
Bob and Rita Resnick invite therapists, counsellors and graduate students of all orientations to three days of Contemporary Gestalt Therapy training with theory and special emphasis on relating the live clinical work to the theory – making both more meaningful. 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.
The workshop 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 psychoanalysis, person-centered, integrative, CBT, existential, systemic, postmodern, “evidence-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.
