Social Justice From a Gestalt Perspective (Stefanie Funke, LMFT)
15 March, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pmFree
Social Justice is a hot topic these days. As therapists, we are seeing a wide variety of clients who are harmed by issues of oppression and prejudice. I will lead a discussion of how gestalt therapy fits with a social justice perspective. I will talk about aspects of gestalt therapy such as phenomenology and field theory to make a connection between gestalt therapy and social justice.
