Aggression: passive, active, creative, destructive. How do you work with the client and with yourself? – Lodz Gestalt School invites you to Peter Philippson’s workshop
Human beings are the most aggressive species the world has ever known, and this aggression is also our creativity. We rebuild what we encounter and create a place suitable for ourselves to grow. We create ways to heal each other but we also create ways to destroy each other.
Fritz Perls has often said that when the world seems too overwhelmingly dangerous or absent to engage with it aggressively, i.e., “I’m not going to be able to do it. enter it as active participants who are part of shaping the world, we move to passively conform to the world perceived as a given, and our active aggression does not disappear, but is directed against ourselves. In this workshop we will explore aggression, active and passive, creative and destructive. It will be a combination of theory, empirical work and discussion.
Gestalt workshop: aggression: passive, active, creative, destructive is aimed at gestalt practitioners. It is counted among the required hours of the so-called. free choice, necessary for certification in the Gestalt stream. It will be conducted in English and translated into Polish.
