This two-day experiential workshop will focus on a relational model for working with groups and communities.  Using this weekend experience as a learning laboratory, we will experience, first-hand Gestalt principles as they are applied in a group context.  We will engage in creative experiments based on Gestalt concepts such as: resistance to contact, and working with polarities as they function in a group atmosphere.  Participants will have the opportunity practice facilitating “here-and-now” encounters.
 
In this process, participants will have the opportunity to learn more about themselves as they are contact with one another based on honesty, respect, mutuality, vitality and trust.  As we become aware of aspects of ourselves, we build the capacity for intimate, authentic contact with others
 
We look forward to cultivating a shared space for relational exploration, professional development and applying Gestalt principles to create dynamic, transformational group experiences.

This workshop is designed/appropriate for all professionals including: Counselors, social workers, psychologists, physicians, nurses, art and music therapists. Coaches, managers, supervisors and others interested in exploring these topics are welcome. 

Learning Objectives
Participants completing this workshop will be able to:

  • Conceptualize group dynamics through the lens of Gestalt theory and methodology;
  • Experience the therapeutic use of self and presence in a variety of interpersonal contacts, including groups;
  • Engage in creative experiments that support culturally-informed methods of self-definition and inclusion;
  • Practice using data-based feedback in a group context;
  • Recognize Gestalt concepts such as: resistance to contact, self-estrangement, the primacy of subjective experience and polarities, as they function in a group atmosphere; and
  • Practice methods for facilitating a “here-and-now” orientation.  Yalom, (2002) refers to this as “the play dirt of therapy”.
