Peter Philippson – Gestalt Workshop: Shame and Guilt in the Gestalt Approach

Dear Gestaltists! You are cordially invited to join us on a journey of discovery centered around shame and guilt with Peter Philippson – a courageous gestalt scientist and experienced international trainer who can bring freshness to our “here and now” both individually and globally.

Shame often blocks us from meeting on the brink of contact with anyone else – a client, a colleague, a loved one. Feelings of guilt prevent many things from happening in dealing with others and even in discovering oneself. Both shame and guilt are worldwide burdens on people.

There are different layers of shame and guilt of the person who feels it, as well as his / her family, culture, country, historical moment “here and now”…. Religion and other heavy systems or frameworks often increase the experience of shame and guilt, posing serious challenges in dealing with the outside world.

We invite you to these meaningful explorations, illuminating new insights into a fairly well-known phenomenon. Led by Peter, we will reflect on your own shame and guilt through the lens of a contemporary gestalt approach.

Many articles on shame focus on the actions of people who shame others. But what is the meaning of shame and guilt for the person who feels it? What is the difference between shame and guilt? What is the relationship to aggression? During the workshop we will look at these issues through theory presentation, discussion, demonstration and group process.
