WORKSHOP 23 & 24 of JULY. Sand Play and Gestalt Therapy- Brisbane- Australia
TIME TESTED PRINCIPLES OF LIFE AND WORK
Emerging from the background of a society addicted to growth and success is an interest again in the teachings of Gestalt founders Fritz and Laura Perls and in the many refinements made by Gestalt trainers worldwide since their passing. Those familiar with Gestalt have missed having a community where they can share their deepest selves and those new to Gestalt are just discovering that this kind of contact is possible. This two day workshop will focus on Gestalt's timeless understandings and existential practices as well as the therapy itself. Amazingly, some indigenous teachings as well as those of Buddhism and Eckhart Tolle's work have a lot in common with Gestalt principles. In addition, this workshop will enable you to develop some beginning skills in how to work with individuals and couples using various approaches. Using the Sandplay method will enable the therapist to work with clients introducing symbolic language that opens up communication to new levels. Other methods of practice will be demonstrated such as the paradoxical theory of change, how thinking can get us into trouble, the magic of role playing, etc.
This workshop is approved as a PD for professionals by AASW.
The participants will be involved in the use of art tools such as figures and a sandbox in which to set up a world in miniature. In this manner, through free, creative play, unconscious processes are made visible in a three dimensional form and a pictorial world comparable to the dream experience. Through a series of creative images, we will learn how to resolve the issues that arise in the group or the individuals.
