GETME

Gestalt/Experiential Training of Maine

Experiential Therapy Training Group 2017-2018

GETME is Proud to Announce the 2017-2018 Experiential Therapy Training Group:

Listening11This is a group to introduce clinicians to Person-Centered, Gestalt, and Focusing, giving a thorough grounding in the basics, up to an intermediate level. We will also begin the study of Emotion-Focused Therapy, which is an integration of these approaches. The training will consist of six units, each building on the last, exploring the basic theory and practice of experiential/humanistic and neo-humanistic therapies.

The group will meet approximately twice a month, from September until June. There will be readings assigned for each unit. Each meeting will last two hours, and will include didactic lecture, discussion, and experiential exercises. Members will then have the opportunity to bring the interventions back to their practices, and bring their questions back to the group. In this fashion, over the course of the year, members will gradually integrate the fundamentals of experiential therapy into their personal therapeutic repertoire.

A key element of the training is the experiential exercises, where participants will have the opportunity to observe, receive, perform, and discuss each of the interventions we study.

  • Empathic Attunement
