BECOME A GESTALT PSYCHOTHERAPIST
Tony Jackson / MD Gestalt Centre, Melbourne
Saturday 19th September 2020
Online delivery 9.30 to 4pm (6hrs)
Resilience is a highly sought capacity, particularly in these times. Our experience of resilience is often limited by individualistic ideas of it as internal (psychological). It is often understood as the capacity to endure hardship and seen as a quality you have or don’t have. From a relational gestalt perspective, resilience is better understood as contextual and interpersonal. Resilience is emergent, creative and flexible. It supports flow.
In this experiential workshop, we will be exploring resilience through the lenses of embodied awareness, compassionate responding and courageous interrelating. These capacities are at the heart of the theory and practice of gestalt therapy. Over the day, we will explore these as supports for resilience. The goal is to resource therapists, and their clients, face towards challenge and change.

BECOME A GESTALT PSYCHOTHERAPIST
STUDY AT GTA IN 2021
Relational Gestalt Training is a rich and rewarding way to deepen your therapeutic presence and build on the relational capacities so needed in today's world.
Starting from a holistic, non-pathologizing & deeply compassionate philosophy, our central program value is to respond to the fundamental human need for belonging and to understand (accept) our part in universal suffering. We try to challenge individualism and hold a radical world view that resists the medicalizing of human experience.

A SPECIAL EVENT:
Black Lives Matter / An Indigenous Australian Perspective
With Professor Judy Atkinson (We Al-li)
Saturday 7th November 2020
Online Delivery: 9am to 1pm - 4hrs
$145.00 or $120.00 for enrolled students and interns
We are very pleased that Judy Atkinson, founder of We Al-li and author of Trauma Trails: Recreating Song Lines will conduct a 4-hour seminar for our GTA community to help us grapple with the recent reinvigoration of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement. Although largely centred in the USA, BLM speaks directly to the Australian situation and the ongoing mistreatment of indigenous peoples – including the systemic racism of our police and criminal justice systems (Aboriginal Deaths in Custody). Judy will also address the failures of the community service system and the inability to respond to critical needs as a result. This will be an invaluable support to any of us working in the community and mental health sector and want to work in culturally aware and sensitive ways.
We have worked with We Al-li for 4 years, and Antonia Burke has made a number of visits to our GTA community. Antonia has been unable to visit this year due to Covid-19. To keep momentum, and to support our community’s response to these vital issues we are offering this web-based seminar. Judy will create and deliver new content for this seminar.
