Course Description

Gestalt Therapy Essentials

Study 365

Gestalt Therapy takes the focus off the therapist and puts it back on the client.

Gestalt Therapy was first introduced in the early 20th century and the 1960s and 70s saw widespread popularity in this form of therapy. It is existential and experiential psychotherapy that focuses on the experience of the client, their social context, their environment and relationships with an attempt to better understand how all these factors play a role in the present moment.

The Gestalt Therapy is what can be done in the present rather than focus on what could have been or what might be. It is an awareness practice also referred to as being mindful. The client becomes aware of what it is they are doing, take personal responsibility for their thoughts and actions and understand the triggers that set them off, which they in turn can shift or change.

The Gestalt Therapy Essentials course is comprehensive and fascinating for learners who enjoy discovering and exploring the human mind. The course helps learners focus on direct experience versus secondary interpretation. It is human psychotherapy where if the situation calls for it, the therapist and client can create a dialogical relationship where there is a safe space for the client to be present, engage in the dialogic process and surrender rather than control.
