In this increasingly complex and sometime chaotic world, interpersonal relationships have never been more important—or more complicated! Relating effectively with others can advance your professional career and enrich your personal life. In this fast-paced, multitasking world, the ability to relate authentically is easily compromised. It is often easier to withdraw into isolation and lose sight of our need to contribute to the creation of stimulating and supportive relationships and communities. Relating well is based upon using our capacities to be self-aware, curious and open to another’s experience and viewpoint, as well as having the skills to communicate effectively in order to influence with integrity.
We invite you to participate in a Gestalt Experience Workshop (GEW) and learn how a Gestalt approach can help you to build more productive productive and satisfying personal and professional relationships. This workshop focuses on increasing your self-awareness and supporting your learning through direct, present experience and respectful exchange with others. Our skilled faculty facilitators create a space in which to explore, observe, practice and discuss interpersonal interactions. In addition, core elements of Gestalt methods are explained to help you to integrate your learning.
This is a potentially transformative weekend that offers an opportunity to take some of the mystery out of creating and sustaining more satisfying professional and interpersonal relationships.
This workshop satisfies the Introductory Gestalt Workshop prerequisite for the Gestalt Training Program (GTP) and may contribute to acceptance in other GIC training programs.
