GPALA One Day Conference 2018
Relational Development with Gestalt Group Therapy
Presenters: Peter Cole, LCSW, CGP & Daisy Reese LCSW, CGP
In this workshop we will explore the theory and practice of a relational approach to Gestalt Group Therapy (GGT). GGT is an interactive, process oriented approach that places emphasis on group members’ capacity for both self-activation and intimate connection. The relational gestalt approach promotes a dialogical relationship between the group leader and group members in which the therapist works from a position of authenticity to promote both individual and group development.
