The Gestalt Institute of San Francisco is delighted to launch its 2023-24 certificate training program in the art and science of the Gestalt Approach. The training program is designed for counselors and psychotherapists in training as well as seasoned mental health professionals and other consultants and coaching professionals. The program will offer deep theoretical and experiential learning of guiding principles and processes of Gestalt to those who seek to embody deep presence and knowledge in the service of one’s own and others’ human potential

The training program will integrate and interweave discussions of theoretical constructs with direct experiential learning of Gestalt Methodology, processes, and therapeutic practices.
