Three-Day Contemporary Gestalt Therapy Training Workshops For Therapists
With Rita F. Resnick, Ph.D. & Robert W. Resnick, Ph.D. (Dublin) –
October 11-13, 2019,
Avila Retreat Center, Bloomfield Avenue, Donnybrook, Dublin 4
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 a 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 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.
