Gestalt Experience Workshop: An Introduction to Gestalt – Cleveland

#CE:16.5
Description: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.
Registration Deadline: prior to start date or maximum enrollment of 16 (whichever comes first)
