Five Year Training Program| Overview
The Gestalt Training Program consists of five years of part-time study on evenings and weekends. The program is scheduled between the months of September and April, followed by a five-day residential workshop in a country setting early in May for Years One, Two and Three, and in June for Year Four and the One-Year Training for Professionals group. The first three years of The Five Year Training Program may be taken for intensive personal growth for students not intending to go forward into the Professional Development Training of Year Four and Five which is geared to becoming a Registered Psychotherapist. Years One to Three, or equivalent, are prerequisite training for entrance to Year Four and Year Five.
One-Year Training Program for Professionals| Overview
This program has been expanded in response to many inquiries from professionals desiring a foundational intensive training in Gestalt Therapy that is combined with supervision. The experience is designed for therapists and counselors, trainers and facilitators, consultants and leaders who are currently practising. Gestalt theory and methods will be taught as they apply to the particular client groups and responsibility areas of the participants. This is an excellent opportunity for professionals to learn the Gestalt method and to apply these skills and understandings within their own disciplines. Personal development is an integral part of this training.
