Our training cycles are a part of Continuing Professional Development (CPD), i.e. lifelong learning, which is both an ethical and certification requirement in most psychotherapeutic associations.
EAGT recommends that in the period of every 5 years after the completion of the training, lifelong learning should include Gestalt psychotherapy activities of 50 hours. The European Association for Psychotherapy sets a limit of 250 hours of workshops, conferences, supervisions and seminars.
Workshops are short forms of developing personal and/or specialist (professional) skills regarding „how” we do something. They mainly develop the so-called soft skills, inspire changes. At our Institute, we especially make sure that they also deepen the substantive knowledge of Gestalt theory and methodology.
Our offers are addressed to psychotherapists, psychologists, pedagogues, educators, students of psychotherapy, psychology and pedagogy, doctors.
Supervision in psychotherapy is an essential process of verification of one’s own work, a necessary professional support for a psychotherapist and, at the same time, a lifelong learning in this profession.
„Supervision is a learning process in which the psychotherapist cooperates with a more experienced colleague in order to enrich their own skills in the process of continuous professional development (…) this, in turn, promotes the well-being of his client and ensures his safety.” – M.C. Gilbert, K. Evans, „Supervision in psychotherapy” GWP 2004.
At the Gestalt Training and Education Institute, the Supervision in psychotherapy formes a kind of creative dialogue regarding clinical practice. If it enables to increase awareness of the therapy process, the client’s situation and the therapist’s experience, and their mutual relationship, then such a meeting leads to the intensification of the client’s feelings and understanding, intuitive insights, inspiring the therapist to change and equipping him with new creative forms of therapeutic work.
We conduct individual and group supervision.

EMPIRICAL INTRODUCTION TO THE THEORY AND PRACTICE OF GESTALT THERAPY
The Basic Course of the School for Psychotherapists (Basic Program) is the first stage of becoming a psychotherapist. The important thing in training psychotherapists (and in training other professional competences, especially in counseling, group work or other contexts of working with people), is that the adept should know how to treat his own experiences and reactions that arise during such work. That is why we have based the Basic Program on Gestalt Therapy on a combination of our own developmental experience (self-experience) and gradual, experimental learning of the theory. Graduates of the Basic Course may apply for admission to the Advanced Course on Clinical Skills. Both stages form a comprehensive, 4-year training in psychotherapy in the Gestalt approach, adapted to the standards of the EAGT (European Association for Gestalt Psychotherapy).
