Therapeutic Training – Description:
“During therapeutic training, I work with the id (a function of it) of group life, and I don’t abstract from forms of relational work either. Each person in the group has a stake in the emerging experience and is created by it.
I am interested in exploring in the group such experiences that form the socio-cultural backdrop of our therapeutic work, i.e. issues of fluidity, fragmentation, otherness, foreignness and belonging. This is tantamount to a focus on (inter)corporeality-as-body for the creation of concrete meanings. In other words, against such a background of embodied resonance, we will support any figurative suffering or simply experience.
It is the group as a whole that supports individuals in searching in the here-and-now for their answers to unfinished business. Despite the accepted perspective of field theory, my responsibility as a leader differs from that of individuals in the group.
Since this is training, I pay special attention to the process of collaborative learning and the conditions for it. It is, if you look at the schedule of days, a relatively intense experience with sufficient time for assimilation. The modern world, including the world brought by people to therapy, is characterized by a high level of acceleration and complexity, as well as a permanent state of crisis (many crises exist simultaneously: ecological, pandemic, social and political – the war in Ukraine). If I can influence it, I want to propose a frame that does not replicate this pace, but leaves space for withdrawing its energy. The contact is as good as we can withdraw (PHG).”
Kamila White is a certified Gestalt psychotherapist. She learned and continues to learn working with the group from Piotr Mierkowski, Peter Philippson and Billy Desmond.
She completed an EAGT-accredited two-year supervisor program at the Istituto di Gestalt in Italy and received training in psychopathology and field theory at the Turin School of Gestalt Psychopathology.
