Free webinar with Peter Philippson – description:

In the “self” theory of Gestalt therapy, the self and the other take their form in the act of contacting each other, rather than in the pre-existing self, which then makes contact. While theories of the pre-existing self must show how such a self can change, in Gestalt theory, change is always available, and the question is how we maintain a sense of personal continuity – and when that continuity becomes problematic, leaving us acting in familiar and painful ways. This workshop will introduce the theory and practice of working with clients based on this understanding. There will be time for personal work, discussion and skill practice.

Peter Philipson is a Gestalt theorist with a unique approach, one of the best-known figures in the world of Gestalt therapy, founder and director of the Manchester Gestalt Centre (UK), former president of the Association for the Advancement of Gestalt Therapy (AAGT), member of the New York Gestalt Institute, author of several books, including the well-known “Self in Relations,” which was recently translated into Russian (“Self in Relationships”), and author of numerous articles and chapters in collective monographs. Peter Philipson’s therapeutic work is a model of excellence in gestalt therapy with a processual approach; at the same time, his work on the self process always goes hand in hand with his work on relationships. Peter is also one of the most sought-after supervisors in the UK; in his supervision work, he pays particular attention to the parallel processes occurring both between therapist and client and in the space of the therapist-supervisor relationship. He is a lively, sensitive, active participant in the dynamic group process, precise and clear in theory, and structured in the transfer of theoretical material. He is sensitive to the social processes taking place in the therapeutic field and responds to the need for support.
