Developmental Learning Workshops in Gestalt Therapy

David Hoban, MD

Therapeutic schools, whatever their names, may be described in terms of three components: Personal experience, theory and technique. In the ‘market’ of training in psychotherapy, systematic approaches offer these individual elements as a means of enhancing client care often attached to a promise of rapid advantage with minimal expenditure of effort. The Center for Therapist Development aims at the overall development of the therapist by cultivating a capacity to 'learn how to learn.' Therapists learn to work from their being as they, their clients, and situations unfold. To accomplish this requires effort and does not come quickly or easily. The rewards are permanent.
