EVOLVING SELF IN RELATION: GESTALT THERAPY IN 2017
GTIP Co-Founding Directors Mary Lou Schack, Ph.D.; David Henrich, LCSW and the faculty of the Gestalt Therapy Institute of Philadelphia invite you to join them for an Introductory workshop on the theory and practice of Gestalt Therapy.

Saturday and Sunday, April 22 and 23, 2017

Gestalt Therapy is a relational and experiential psychotherapy that promotes growth in the client by expanding the client's awareness, nurturing the client's innate creativity, developing the client's resilience, and supporting the client's authentic wants and needs. It is a humanistic approach that supports the client in his or her own cultural identity while recognizing consequences, conflicts, and possibilities of being authentic in the broader culture.

Gestalt Therapy encourages first person dialogue between client and therapist that is focused on the client's clarity of experience and the person's ability to be in the "here and now" with confidence and openness. These experiences often include mind/body connections, novel experiences, and a growing sense of self while filling in our personal stories we all have within us, all of which are included in the recent neuroscience recommendations to help clients change.

THE WORKSHOP INCLUDES THE OPPORTUNITY FOR PARTICIPANTS TO:
    Witness and discuss Gestalt Therapy sessions with workshop leaders and volunteers.
    Observe the Gestalt Therapy theory in practice and discuss the interventions that enable change to happen.
    View different styles used by Gestalt therapists while observing a client experiencing their own growth, and discuss and adapt those styles to your own professional work.
    Learn how to integrate your affective, sensory, cognitive, interpersonal, and behavioral awareness into powerful and effective therapeutic interactions with your clients.
    Obtain a taste of what occurs in our Three-Year Training Program.

The next class begins in September 2015.

RELATIONAL LIVING BODY PSYCHOTHERAPY   
Julianne Appel-Opper, http://www.thelivingbody.de

EMBODIED APPROACHES TO PSYCHOTHERAPY AND SUPERVISION - a confer module online available since 2016 at http://www.conferonline.org. The package of presentations includes contributions by Julianne Appel-Opper, Shoshi Asheri, Bill Cornell, Morit Heitzler, Dr. Pat Ogden, Dr. Susie Orbach, Dr. Asaf Rolef Ben-Shahar, Dr. Yorai Sella, Jon Sletvold, Michael Soth, Dr. Kathrin Stauffer and Nick Totton with work by Dr. Ruella Frank following in 2017. This is what Confer says about Julianne's films: She BRINGS FIELD THEORY TO LIFE AS PART OF HER APPROACH TO EMBODIED SUPERVISION.

NEXT BERLIN-SERIES IN ENGLISH 2017-2018
Developing Embodied Interventions and Experiments within the Co-created Embodied Field: the next series of 4 weekend workshops in Berlin will be on 20-11 Oct 2017; 19-21 Jan 2018; 20-22 April 2018; 15-17 June 2018. For a detailed flier and to book your place, please email julianne.ao@web.de or visit her website http://www.thelivingbody.de.

The way both client and therapist look, sit, move, and breathe sends messages in both directions. Within a cocreated embodied field two living bodies communicate with each other as rhythms and melodies of moving and being moved. Julianne has developed a new way of understanding of and working within this body-to-body-communication in a relational and field oriented way. Her approach is well situated within research fields of neuroscience, attachment, and developmental psychology. Using her experience of many years of clinical practice and teaching, she offers a safe and respectful space for exercises, experiential process, live supervision, small group work together with theory input and a critical discussion and reflection of different approaches to body process in psychotherapy and relevant interdisciplinary research findings in this field. Participation of this program includes a handout and a discount on the Confer Module Embodied Approaches to Psychotherapy, to which she participated in 2016.

NEW BOOK ABOUT THE INTEGRATION OF GESTALT AND HYPNOTIC AGE REGRESSION

Announcing the publication of Randal Churchill's updated and expanded Second Edition of his definitive classic, REGRESSION HYPNOTHERAPY: Transcripts of Transformation. This 480-page hardbound training text for professionals emphasizes the integration of Gestalt and age regression. In this fascinating, well-organized and responsible training guide, the author documents the powerful potential of this work, which includes 15 major steps frequently invaluable during Gestalt regression.

Of the 23 chapters, 13 focus on transcripts of regression sessions with commentary, plus follow-up interviews. After the hypnotic portion of the sessions is initiated, comprehensive strategies include checking for subconscious direction via ideomotor methods, use of the affect bridge to regress to initial sensitizing event(s), various Gestalt methods, uncovering of misconceptions, and reeducation of the subconscious Ormond McGill, The Dean of American Hypnotists, wrote, "This ultimate teaching text will be used by hypnotherapists for decades to come."

Randal Churchill has also authored a Gestalt-based companion volume, CATHARSIS IN REGRESSION HYPNOTHERAPY, which explores especially strong examples of abreaction during regression. When utilizing hypnotic regression to help heal the effects of trauma, including with methods such as the affect bridge and Gestalt, abreaction is not a goal but naturally a common development and can be part of the opportunity for powerful therapy.

Robert Hall, psychiatrist and Gestalt therapist who wrote the Introduction to the Fritz Perls autobiography, In and Out the Garbage Pail, states: "Catharsis in Regression Hypnotherapy is a treasure, and a resource for the entire field of depth psychotherapy, an offering whose gifts are never-ending. In this book, Randal Churchill's skills as a brilliant therapist are enriched by his skillful integration of Gestalt Therapy with hypnotherapy, his huge capacity for insight, and his maturity as a master teacher of his work."

In this increasingly complex and sometime chaotic world, interpersonal relationships have never been more important or more complicated! Relating effectively with others can advance your professional career and enrich your personal life. In this fast-paced, multitasking world, the ability to relate authentically is easily compromised. It is often easier to withdraw into isolation and lose sight of our need to contribute to the creation of stimulating and supportive relationships and communities. Relating well is based upon using our capacities to be self-aware, curious and open to another's experience and viewpoint, as well as having the skills to communicate effectively in order to influence with integrity.

EXPERIMENTING WITH EXPERIMENTS: A COACH APPROACH

TIMES: Monday, 9:00am-6:00pm
       Tuesday, 9:00am-6:00pm
CONTINUING EDUCATION (CE): 14 Core Competency CCEs

What's possible? As a coach, you can open up space for novel experiences that enable your clients to view themselves in the world differently. As you work with them in the here and now, you co-create creative experiences that support deep personal learning and highlight integrated and sustainable shifts in their experience and behavior.  Gestalt Experimenting is creative. With an experimental mind set, our bias is toward doing and generating new data, rather than rehashing a concretized narrative or talking about life experience abstractly. This allows the client to lead from their experience and enables the coachee and coach to spontaneously co-create a powerful experience in the moment to engage the client in active self-exploration.

This workshop offers a deep dive into the exploration of coaching at the point of contact; the point where growth occurs. Using the contact model developed by the presenter and tested for the last thirty years, the workshop will create a frame of reference for contact that coaches can use to increase the quality and level of contact with their client. The model explores the impact of presence and vulnerability on contact. Understanding these two dimensions and their inter-relationship deepens the coach's understanding and skill in making impactful contact with the client and enabling the client to expand his/her capacity to make impactful contact with self and others.

ETHICAL EXPERIENCE AND OUR ATTITUDES TOWARD THE OTHER
FACULTY: Jennifer McWeeny, PhD, Daniel E. Jones, PhD
DATE: Saturday, April 1, 2017
TIME: 9:00am-5:00pm
CONTINUING EDUCATION (CE): 6 Ethics Contact hours

We will turn to phenomenology to address the questions: What is the ethical experience? When does the ethical experience occur? What can be said of the person who has this experience? One of Gestalt therapy's central concepts is contact with the 'other'. We will explore together how the ethical experience shapes the Gestalt practitioner's attitudes toward the other.

Through lecture, discussion, reflection, and experiments we will develop an understanding of attitudes toward the other informed by an ethical sensibility which can shape the practitioner's quality of contact.   Conversations may engage the works of thinkers such as Levinas, Buber and de Beauvoir.

CONTINUING EDUCATION (CE): 12.25 Contact hours

When children come into our offices we have the privilege of being with them as they are in their unique place and time in development. Most often, issues in the family or in their own lives cause the child to be alone with his or her lived experience of what it's like to be in this context.  In this workshop we will explore ways to work with children by supporting them to fully express what they hold in their bodies, keep as secrets, or act out in play with friends or in the family.

CONTINUING EDUCATION (CE): 10.75 Contact hours

When pain comes our way, our natural tendency, and often our automatic reaction is to push it away or to run the other way and move past it as quickly as possible.  We attempt to sweep it under the rug.  When we shift our attitude towards, and our relationship to pain, we create an opportunity for the pain to become a friend and perhaps, a great teacher. As practitioners, we will learn how to work with clients' pain, as well as to embrace our own pain.  We will explore skills and practices we can use and integrate into our daily lives.

The history of empires is marked by conquest. Any peoples encountered were either wiped out or "absorbed" into an empire's homogenizing superculture. Most of the world is now the product of BOTH an original culture AND a superculture. The moment our hybrid histories were born, we faced the requirement of forgetting where we came from. Many chose to assimilate perhaps only partially, but often so absolutely that all those ancestral stories disappeared. And those who resisted to protect/ sustain the rich culture of their peoples became tightly bonded to those who shared their identities, which made it difficult to forge enduring bridges to other cultural groups.

Gestalt Therapy Institute of Los Angeles
Presents
The 2016-2017 Salon Series

"Gestalt Therapy and Treating Crisis and Trauma"
Led by Nickie Godfrey, LMFT
Sunday, March 5, 2017 3:00-4:30 PM

In this salon, Nickie Godfrey will briefly delineate the various kinds of crisis and traumatic events and define the appropriate kinds of counseling and psychotherapy for each.  Her main focus will be on defining the "developmental or Big T trauma" usually caused by physical and sexual abuse.  Because there is always betrayal and somatic involvement that remain present emotionally and physically for people experiencing this kind of abuse, the holistic and present-entered approach of Gestalt therapy can be especially useful.  Lore Perls' quote that "The resistance is the energy, not the enemy, and that "denial" as a protective factor (a la Beisser's "paradox of change") will be guiding Gestalt concepts.  Lastly, Nickie will also comment on the costs to those providing therapy such as "secondary trauma."

NAOMI  NICKIE' GODFREY, LMFT is a GTILA certified Gestalt therapist, has ALGO level certification in Thought Field Therapy (TFT), and has earned beginning and advanced certification in Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM.)  She's a past president and current board member of GTILA.  Nickie's private practice is in Encino.

Led by Michele Conklin Montrone, LMFT
Sunday, April 30, 2017 3:00-4:30 PM

MICHELE CONKLIN MONTRONE, LMFT is in private practice in Los Angeles, where she works with individuals and couples utilizing a relational Gestalt approach, EMDR and Art Therapy.  She has trained at the Pacific Gestalt Institute, is a board member of GTILA and a group supervisor at the Southern California Counseling Center.

The book begins with an overview of the topic of personality disorders, reframes these disorders as adaptations, and then explains the treatment interventions that work best for each type of adaptation. Later chapters describe how to do specific interventions that deal with commonly encountered treatment issues.  Each type of intervention is explained in detail, ample clinical examples are given, as is how and when to utilize the method in the client's treatment. Both beginning therapists and experienced clinicians alike will find this book a useful resource that will expand their understanding and effectiveness with this often challenging group of clients.
Elinor Greenberg, Ph.D., CGP, is a psychologist and an internationally renowned Gestalt therapy trainer who specializes in teaching the diagnosis and treatment of Borderline, Narcissistic, and Schizoid clients.

SUMMER PROGRAMME FOR GESTALT PSYCHOTHERAPISTS
- A space and time for yourself and an update on new clinical issues -
Siracusa (Italy) - July 26-30, 2017

One of the most important (and forgotten) issues for psychotherapists is to take care of oneself and to give oneself time and space to breathe, concentrate, to be able to accept the support of someone else. This Summer retreat and training will offer you the possibility to work on yourself, while being updated on contemporary Gestalt therapy theory and to reflect on the application of Gestalt therapy principles to today’s clinical problems and - of course - to have good Italian food, swim in the Ionian Sea, and visit many historical (Greek and Roman) sites.  The program is led by Margherita Spagnuolo Lobb, psychologist, psychotherapist and researcher, international trainer, Director of the Istituto di Gestalt HCC Italy (Siracusa, Palermo and Milan). She has founded the Istituto di Gestalt in 1979 and it was the first School of Gestalt therapy training in Italy. She and the trainers at her institute have made a significant contribution to the development of this psychotherapeutic method internationally, in terms of ongoing dialog with the demands of the society in which we live.

The Institute is recognized by the Italian Minister for Universities and by the European Association for Gestalt Therapy (EAGT). It is running Gestalt Therapy courses in Siracusa, Palermo and Milan. For more information visit http://www.gestaltitaly.com

Margherita is also president of the Italian Federation of Gestalt Therapy Schools (FISIG), past-president of the European Association for Gestalt Therapy (EAGT), and of the Italian Federation of all Psychotherapy Methods (FIAP), founder and honorary president of the Italian Association of Gestalt Psychotherapists (SIPG), full member of the New York Institute for Gestalt Therapy (NYIGT). In her clinical work, she has hermeneutical applied Gestalt therapy principles to develop a relational, phenomenological and aesthetic approach. Recently she has been developing the integrative experience of suffering of the between (a new field view on psychopathology) and development. Her book - The Now for Next in Psychotherapy.Gestalt Therapy recounted in Post Modern Society - is available in English, Russian, Spanish, Italian, French, Romanian. By means of clinical cases, the author leads the reader on her path of understanding of the Gestalt approach, which is focused on the desire for contact that animates relational unease and on the process that reveals its "music".  The book is available on http://www.gestalt.it/the-now-for-next-in-psychotherapy-margherita-spagnuolo-lobb/

***ADVANCED GESTALT THERAPY TRAINING IN POLAND: NEW STARTING DATE  APRIL 2017 ***

 Announcing 2nd extended edition of the clinician's training programme in the Polish language.

"BACK TO THE BEGINNINGS OF GESTALT THERAPY"   programme of six 2-day workshops for psychotherapists, counsellors, counselling psychologists, group facilitators and coaches.

"The therapist needs his conception in order to keep his bearings, to know in what direction to look. It is the acquired habit that is the background for this art as in any other art. But the problem is the same as in any art: how to use this abstraction (and therefore fixation) so as not to lose the present actuality and especially the ongoingness of the actuality? And how - a special problem that therapy shares with pedagogy and politics   not to impose a standard rather than help develop the potentialities of the other?" Perls, Hefferline, Goodman (1951).

The programme will consist of shared reading, dialogue and chewing of the basic assumptions made in "Gestalt Therapy" (PHG) - a seminal work that holds the primary theory of Gestalt therapy and is yet to be published in Poland. The idea is to bring this important text to the attention of Polish clinicians whilst at the same time provoking them to adapting it to their individual needs and the unique situation in which they practice.
Facilitated by Piotr Mierkowski & Ewa Canert-Laka

L DZ  POLAND  2017: April, 22-23th, June 3-4th; August 12-13th, October 14-15th, and 2018: January 27-28th.

The first world war started in this area, WWII brought genocide & exodus, the breakup of Yugoslavia brought blood & tears among the people who used to live together, while in here and now we are facing repeating of history with refugees passing through this area; can we transform this energy into a third world peace movement-for a world that is waking up...

Contact and Relationship in a Field Perspective
Lecture and Workshop by Peter Philippson
In a lecture Fritz Perls gave in 1957, he said 'So what is this "self"? Now the "self" cannot be understood other than through the field, just like day cannot be understood other than by contrast with night. If there were eternal day, eternal lightness, not only would you not have the concept of a "day", you would not even have the awareness of a "day" because there is nothing to be aware of, there is no differentiation. So, the "self" is to be found in the contrast with the otherness. There is a boundary between the self and the other, and this boundary is the essence of psychology.'  Classical Gestalt Therapy is based on this insight: the client and the therapist discover each other and themselves in their contact.  Will we find ourselves in a familiar way, or find a way to discover something new and lively?  This workshop will look at ways to work at the boundary where self and other co-create, through theory presentation, discussion and experience.
Faculty: Peter Philippson, M.Sc. (Gestalt Psychotherapy) is a UKCP Registered Gestalt psychotherapist and trainer, a Teaching and Supervising Member of the Gestalt Psychotherapy & Training Institute UK, a founder member of Manchester Gestalt Centre, Full Member of the New York Institute for Gestalt Therapy, Senior Trainer for GITA (Slovenia), advisory board member, Center for Somatic Studies and a guest trainer for many training programmes internationally.  He is Past President of the Association for the Advancement of Gestalt Therapy.  Peter is the author of 'Self in Relation', pub.
