Our particular approach to gestalt therapy continues to evolve, with more and more gestalt therapists from around the world contributing their own insights. Our training focuses on contemporary relational perspectives in gestalt therapy. We emphasize training in working with the nuances of emotional process, therapist-patient interaction, enduring relational themes, process of psychotherapy, and the use of experiments in a relational therapy. Relational gestalt therapy theory is taught systematically and is interwoven into the experiential part of the program.
