Gestalt Associates Training Los Angeles

In addition to a tri-level ongoing training program in Los Angeles, GATLA conducts the longest running annual psychotherapy program in the world – our European Summer Residential Gestalt Therapy Training Program for Therapists where we train both Couples Therapists and Individual Gestalt Therapists. GATLA’s training focuses on field theory, phenomenology and dialogue. We emphasize process and the therapeutic relationship as being the best crucible to access characterological ways people interrupt healthy self regulation of contact and withdrawal. GATLA’s training emphasizes contemporary theory from within and outside of Gestalt Therapy, hands on practice and supervision, and observation of the experienced faculty’s work.

Weekend Program

GATLA – Gestalt Associates Training Los Angeles offers a multi-year post graduate training program in Gestalt Therapy in Santa Monica, CA. which meets six weekends per academic year. This is a hands on training program in which trainees work as therapist under live supervision and can actually observe the faculty working. Cutting edge Gestalt theory is an integral part of the training as is the opportunity to do personal work within the context of the training group.

Residential Program

The purpose of the Summer Residential Gestalt Therapy Training Program is to provide the highest quality of training for psychotherapists in Gestalt and Experiential psychotherapy and other relational models of therapy while retaining the flexibility to be adaptable to practitioners of Cognitive Behavior Therapy. All faculty will do clinical demonstrations and all work will be related to theory. Participants in the Clinical Practicum and Master Class groups work with clients from lower groups in individual therapy under supervision of faculty, Distinguished Gestalt Visitors and/or Group Leaders.
