Organization-Based Training

Our faculty are passionate about community. What better way to learn about Gestalt Therapy Theory than to have folks who teach it and practice it all day, every day, come to your place of work or learning?

Whether it’s a private therapy practice, a law firm, or a community based organization, our faculty can come to you to present multiple aspects of Gestalt Therapy Theory, and how it can be applied to create a greater sense of connection, leadership, community and self knowledge. By offering experiential learning opportunities, our trainers can help your employees have a greater sense of presence, awareness about what they bring to their jobs — such as where they might want to expand and show up differently at work — and what is needed to enhance communication and a sense of trust.  

We have presented introductory lectures and demonstrations about Gestalt Therapy Theory to various educational institutions and service organizations, such as
