Gestalt Therapy Training Group Series
Marilyn Lammert, ScD, LCSW-C
Begins: TBD
MD Cat. 1 CEUs

The Gestalt Therapy Training Group Series offers the opportunity to deepen your clinical skills while enriching your personal life. It is aimed at those who would like in-depth training in Gestalt Therapy, while receiving MD Cat. 1 CEUs.

Gestalt therapy, an existentially based humanistic therapy, is burgeoning in most of Europe, Australia, Mexico, and South America. In the United States, much of what Gestalt therapy introduced from the late 1930s and 1940’s as an antidote to behaviorism and psychoanalysis, today has been integrated into many contemporary psychotherapies—e.g., the importance and usefulness of the “real” relationship, not just transference; the organismic/environmental field (ecology); the importance of awareness; and the movement from interpretation to phenomenology.

Gestalt therapy arose from Fritz and Laura Perls’ discrimination and integration of ideas from many traditions, philosophies, narratives, disciplines, and theories beginning in Germany in the 1920s. It began as a revision of the theories of Sigmund Freud’s, but has evolved into a major contributor to mainstream psychotherapy—a humanistic/existential/experiential psychotherapy in which restoration and holism replace dissection and fragmentation, and where phenomenology (personal meaning making) replaces interpretation.
