Global Gestalt Community

The Gestalt community spans the globe! Below are some of the many opportunities to connect with international Gestalt practitioners, training centers, and conferences.

There are a number of Resources available from the Resources Tab including a list of Gestalt therapists, useful links to the the global Gestalt Therapy community, and various publications.

There are many Gestalt training centers in the US and worldwide, a biannual conference with AAGT, as well as EAGT.

  • Listserv 
  • Interest Groups — AAGT offers its members a variety of interest groups, allowing for connection, support, communication, and resource sharing. These groups communicate via listservs and meet face to face via Zoom. Interest groups include: Child and Adolescent, Gender, Sexuality, Diversity and LGBTQIA+, Research, Trainee & Newly Qualified, White- Identified, and People of Color.

New Gestalt Voices — The idea for New Gestalt Voices came out of a meeting of Gestalt therapy trainees and recent graduates in the UK during summer 2016 with the desire of how they can support each other as trainees, and how they draw support from the profession to unlock the potential of the next generation of Gestaltists.
