A one day workshop with Dave Mann

Creative experimentation is at the heart of Gestalt Therapy but is not exclusive to the Gestalt approach as it can be integrated into any Humanistic approach to therapy and counselling. This one-day workshop will help participants widen their approach and offers the opportunity to increase effectiveness as therapists and counsellors. The Gestalt experiment is underpinned by the belief that we learn at a deeper level and in a more embodied way when we learn experientially, consequently the workshop will have a strong experiential element.

On the workshop we will cover the following areas:

  • So what is this empty chair?
  • The three main types of experimentation.
  • The unremarkable experiment.
  • The emergence of an experiment in the therapy session.
  • Setting up an experiment.
  • Safe closure.
  • Experimentation in relation moderations to contact/blockages.
  • Creative adjustment.
  • Cultural factors in relation to experimentation.
  • Grading experiments
