Tweedaagse workshop: “Working with Body Process from the Gestalt Therapy Perspective”
This workshop will offer participants the opportunity to experience and expand new ways of paying attention to how the body holds memory and character and how the body can revel to us its historical data. By paying more attention to body posture, breath, voice, and movement we can support a more integrative embodied approach to our therapeutic work. The workshop will be a blend of theory, live demonstration and the opportunity to discuss and integrate the clinical work with the presented theory. The theory presented will be a blend of Gestalt and other body work orientations. Time permitting there will be the opportunity to practice working in the group and experience live supervision.
