PGI offers post-graduate, advanced clinical training to licensed psychotherapists, registered interns, or graduate students enrolled in a program that leads to licensed psychotherapy practice. Organizational consultants are also welcome.
PGI offers ongoing Online Weekend Training to participants around the globe, a yearly Residential Training program, Study and Consultation Groups, and a variety of Workshops, all of which feature our focus on the therapeutic relationship in the therapy process.
Our objective is to provide systematic training in contemporary relational gestalt therapy theory and practice through experiential and didactic learning modules. Instruction is offered by a faculty of certified gestalt therapists with considerable experience in training, teaching and supervising beginning and advanced level therapists.
Our particular approach to gestalt therapy continues to evolve, with more and more gestalt therapists from around the world contributing their own insights. We emphasize training in working with the nuances of emotional process, therapist-patient interaction, enduring relational themes, process of psychotherapy, and the use of experiments in a relational therapy. Relational gestalt therapy theory is taught systematically and is interwoven into the experiential parts of our programs.
ONLINE and IN-PERSON Weekend Training Program 2023/2024
