Process Group Facilitator Training Program

Process Group Facilitator Training Program


This program was designed to introduce group facilitators and leaders to the experiential, embodied, and relational group process training developed by the Gestalt Institute of Toronto over the past 45 years.
 
The Group Facilitator Training Program is being offered to therapists and trainers who have graduated a Gestalt training program, as well as professionals from a variety of backgrounds who desire to learn this approach. Completion of this program will provide a Certificate in Gestalt Process Group Facilitator Training. This program is one of the eligibility requirements for those graduates of the GIT who have been in private practice for at least five years and desire to apply as instructors at the GIT,
 
The Gestalt group leader stays alive and creative to each present moment, and is refreshed by the interaction between self and group in which something new is always possible.
