Are you curious about how others perceive you? 
Do you wonder how you as an individual can have an impact in a group?  

The Group Intervention Training Program at the Gestalt Institute of Cleveland offers the facilitators in training the opportunity to expand their skills by working with groups, under faculty supervision.  Faculty members are present throughout the process and offer feedback to trainees on their work in live sessions.

We are looking for people who are interested in participating in these groups. Participation will have benefits for their professional development, as well as for their own personal growth.  This is a perfect way to get exposure to Gestalt concepts and interventions through observation.  Watch the developmental phases of group as they unfold in real time to increase your understanding of Gestalt group process.  Participants may listen to the feedback given to the trainees and learn from it, too.  This is an experience rich in opportunities to learn about Gestalt methods, group work and how you show up in a group.

Upon completion of this program participants will be able to:

  • Relate the basic concepts of a Gestalt approach to working with groups;
  • State developmental phases of a group;
  • Name the Levels of System operating in the group;
  • Notice the impact of the leaders’ interventions on individuals and on the group’s process;
  • Describe the Gestalt concept of resistance/persistence as it shows up in individuals, and in the group as a whole; 
  • Identify one intervention the leaders used that supported resistance/persistence at the individual and group levels;
  • Use your observation of the group’s behavior to distinguish between the levels of system as the work of the group progresses; and
  • Recall leaders’ interventions used at each level of system.
