Module I:

This module focuses on skills in assessing and facilitating groups and small systems. In keeping with Gestalt principles, a key focus is the development of the practitioner's self-awareness parallel with group awareness. Building ground that enables sustainable progress in the group while developing individuals in the group is woven into the facilitator's skills. The design of creative and developmentally appropriate interventions is an essential part of the training.

We will work with Levels of System in the group and how to direct your intervention to the best level for results. Various group contexts will be covered: Clinical, Personal Development, Training, and Task groups. Assessing the Phases of Group Development across types of groups will be informed by both a systems view and a field perspective. You will be able to see more dynamics in a group and have more skills and choices about your responses as facilitator.

Upon completion of Module I, participants will be able to:

  • Apply knowledge and increase capacity to work with Gestalt concepts, principles as an intervener with groups;
  • Identify your strengths as an intervener;
  • Expand your capacity to "see" at multiple levels of system;
  • Create interventions for all levels of system;
  • Skillfully assess choice of level of system in which to intervene;
  • Identify and track impact from interventions;
  • Identify and support resistance/persistence in individuals, groups and social systems;
  • Expand capacity to raise awareness and work with experiment at all levels of system;
  • Apply field theory and systems theory principles in working effectively with groups;
  • Expand knowledge of developmental phases of groups;
  • Apply knowledge of phases of group development in choice of intervention; and
  • Increase ability to choose among possible interventions in order to support more effective connection and development.

Module II:

Open to those with Gestalt training and a group training or facilitation experience...can be Module I, a past Group Training or other relevant facilitation experience.

Would you like to make more of an impact by enhancing how you meet and engage in groups, track systems, assure that interventions you make land and stick? Would you like to deepen your presence to be able to "stand in the eye of the storm" and really make a difference? This training program is a "deep dive" immersion into the advanced application of core principles of Gestalt, focusing on how to maximize use of self in supporting transformation in individuals, groups, organizations and social systems in which we live and thrive. We will be "rolling up our sleeves" and getting into the work of refining "our particular mastery" with dramatically deeper connections to heart, mind and soul.

This advanced, highly experiential offering from GIC has been born out of your passionate desires and demands to refine "your own secret sauce" – that is, how you do your work. You will take away a clearer sense of your own "superpowers and kryptonite,” as well as experiences in identifying and expanding your own unique strengths and in transforming and developing your own specific growing edges as a facilitator and intervener. The design of the program will be generative and collaborative. Participants will have opportunities to facilitate groups of varying size and focus. Together we will explore and expand multiple perspectives of the field in any moment and learn how these perspectives can inform choice. The topics in these sessions will be core Gestalt Theory and Practice content that you are all familiar with, as well as your own personal "stretch" topics. The real treat will be the numerous opportunities you will have to get feedback and "try again and again" intervening. The "guiding principle" we are applying is simple: take risks, fail early and often to excel, and "Practice, Practice, Practice". Come, Join Us!

Upon completion of this workshop participants will be able to:

  • Expand knowledge and capacity to work with Gestalt concepts, and principles as an intervener with groups;
  • Identify your reliable strengths as an intervener;
  • Expand your capacity to creatively work from your reliable strengths as an intervener;
  • Increase awareness of and strengthen your presence as an intervener in groups;
  • Identify and developmentally challenge your "growing edges" as an intervener;
  • Identify and support resistance/persistence in individuals, groups and social systems;
  • Expand capacity to work potently and developmentally with resistance/persistence in individuals, groups and social systems;
  • Apply field theory and systems theory principles in working effectively with groups;
  • Expand knowledge of development of groups;
  • Expand awareness of impact of embodiment on work with groups;
  • Increase capacity to use embodiment in the service of deeper learning and development;
  • Increase capacity to access and integrate multiple perspectives;
  • Identify shifts in perspective and notice how choices emerge from this process; 
  • Apply knowledge of phases of group development in choice of intervention; and
  • Increase ability to choose among possible interventions in order to support more effective connection and development.

Module III:

Previous group intervention training is required.

Would you really like to make the most of your group facilitation skills by being able to walk into a room full of strangers with confidence and make a difference with your presence as an instrument in supporting transformation in the individual participants and the group as a whole?

This advanced, capstone experiential offering is being presented at the request of previous participants who desire to go one step further to demonstrate mastery in use of self as an integrated heart, mind and soul.   Here is your opportunity to bring forth and further hone your unique style.  You will manage the process of building ground with “random participants,” explore and hold multiple perspectives in the field, and make impactful interventions.

You will also have the opportunity to get “real-time” feedback from a knowledgeable facilitator coach.  A one-hour debriefing is offered at the end of your facilitation experience to assist you in identifying examples of strengths that were consistently demonstrated as well as recognizing additional growing edges.

Upon completion of this workshop participants will be able to:

  • Review Gestalt concepts and principles, as they apply to work with groups;
  • Discuss the methods for working with resistance/persistence at the individual and group levels;
  • Recognize the developmental phases of group process;
  • Apply principles of embodiment within the group for deeper learning;
  • Develop interventions that emerge from areas of strength;
  • Practice creating interventions to integrate multiple perspectives; and
  • Demonstrate the ability to choose among possible interventions in order to support more effective connection and development of individuals and the group, as a whole.
