"The Gestalt Training Program should be a prerequisite for living! It enhanced every area of my life. Not only was the program personally enriching for me, but the lessons definitely carried through to my business, career, parenting, and social interactions." - A recent GTP graduate

The Gestalt Training Program (GTP) is designed to foster the growth, development, and transformation of people in a manner unique to the Gestalt Institute of Cleveland in service to individuals' personal and professional development.

GTP strives for diversity and the building of a community of people with different backgrounds, ideologies, cultures, races, religions, and professions. We engage in the important work of expanding our capacity for living a meaningful life and our potential to contribute meaningfully to the world. We support the integration of body, mind, emotion, and spirit in search of a richly satisfying way of life.

Is GTP for me?

Anyone working with individuals, couples, families, or groups in a broad range of professional settings will benefit from the program. Health care and healing professionals, coaches and business leaders, social services workers, teachers, ministers and pastoral counselors, consultants, and graduate students. GTP is particularly ideal for practitioners seeking to enhance their training and individuals seeking to expand their capacity to relate to others in their personal or professional lives.
