This first course, INTRODUCTION TO THE GESTALT ART THERAPY EXPERIENCE is made up of three week-ends covering twelve modules.
The Gestalt Art Therapy centre is a Brisbane based centre offering a series of workshops to introduce the participant to the effective utilisation of art tools and gestalt therapy processes in working with individual clients, groups, couples and families who may be seeking a more creative approach to personal development. It is all about living fully and creatively in the present moment..
The directors of the centre are Yaro Starak and Gemma Garcia. Both have extensive work and teaching experience that spans more than 30 years in many countries, and involving both English and Spanish speaking students.
This first course, INTRODUCTION TO THE GESTALT ART THERAPY EXPERIENCE is made up of three week-ends covering twelve modules. Each module has both a theoretical component (experienced on line) and practical, face- to- face experiential workshops which are held at the Centre.
There are going to be a series of exercises that will give the student ample opportunity to apply the theory to actual practical experience in the group. All tools are designed to give the student a direct capability to work with clients using gestalt and art methods and skills.
In each week-end workshop, the students will be able to ‘sample’ specific tools of art therapy. For example, painting, music, mime, sand play, mandalas, movement, drama, phototherapy and so on. The introduction course is for counsellors, therapists, social workers, artists and anyone interested in learning new way to apply art and gestalt in their work.
In addition, we are introducing a new model of working called SICAIDIR. It is a method of application clear processes in each therapy session combining Gestalt and Art.
Finally, this introduction to gestalt and art therapy is a unique form of therapy because it goes beyond the usual academic and theoretical medium and beyond the official gestalt training offered by the various institutes. To apply, please fill in the application form that we shall send you and return it to us. We shall then include all the registration information for you to be able to reserve your place in this course. No artistic skills are necessary.
