Gestalt is a holistic approach to working with individuals and groups and is firmly rooted in humanistic psychology and process facilitation. It emphasises the idea of working in the ‘here and now’ in groups rather than delving into the past or imagining what the future might be like. Gestalt focuses on learning from understanding how we construct and make sense of the systems, groups and individuals with whom we live and work.
The programme will be organised around a process of gestalt inquiry so you can develop the skills of reflective practice and are able to research your practice. The experience and skills on inquiry will enable you to build you capability to work in highly ambiguous and uncertain environments and increase your professional and personal confidence.
Gestalt group dynamics in action is about developing insight through inquiring about what is happening in ourselves and others, being more aware of how we impact others in groups and how groups influence and affect us as professional practitioners.
