Relational Gestalt: Immersion In Complexity

Relational Gestalt: Immersion In Complexity with Janice Roosevelt Gerard

Relational Gestalt Therapy is about the complexity of human experience presented as an online interactive workshop. To learn to be intimate with others is a complex process which requires our presence, our focused attention and awareness of our history, our immediate experience and our surroundings simultaneously. During the course we will review the major underpinnings of classical Gestalt and how Relational Gestalt advances our capacity to integrate and live complex experiences while advancing the theory and practice of Gestalt therapy. We will explore the evocative power of language, of imagery and most importantly, the profundity and complexity of human interaction. We will be given the time and space to ponder, live and understand one of the fundamental tenets of Relational Gestalt, “All experience is co-created.”
