Apply for Training

Applicants with diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply. A non-refundable fee and three letters of recommendation accompany the application for admission.

Admission to the program is based on recommendations and a review of candidates’ abilities to:

  • Be self reflective;
  • Engage in group experiences;
  • integrate and utilize written and didactic theoretical material; and
  • Articulate why Gestalt Therapy Theory interests them personally and professionally.

Preference is given to applicants who have engaged in some form of personal growth experience.

Once application materials are submitted and reviewed and the application fee is paid, applicants are invited for an interview and then notified of the admission decision.

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2022-2023 training year.  We will begin accepting applications for 2023-2024 in the fall.

Application for admission requires a fee: $75, three letters of recommendation and an interview with Leadership and a Faculty member.
