Organisation: IPsiG, Istituto Internazionale di Psicopatologia della Gestalt

The International Institute for Gestalt Therapy and Psychopathology was founded in Torino in 2016. The Institute is deeply rooted in the tradition of the phenomenological psychopathology and in contemporary wide debate on diagnosis and clinical practice. Human suffering is understood as a creative expression of the relational field and therapy as the situation where the therapist´s presence supports the transformation of pain into beauty, following the aesthetic criteria of the contact process.

to Nov 9




Developmental Somatic Psychotherapy is a relational and movement oriented approach to psychotherapy within a contemporary Gestalt therapy framework. It is a comprehensive system of phenomenological analysis that allows practitioners to diagnose and treat their clients using movement experiments.

This will be a series of two experiential workshops (two days each) and the focus will be our sensed, direct and aesthetic experience of the situation we live in. Participants will explore how yet unaware primary movement patterns are part of their present experience and influence daily life. Attention is given to the qualities of contact that we experience kinaesthetically, and how that informs us of self and otherness.

Helena Kallner MA (Public Health Science & Ethnology) MSc (Gestalt Psychotherapy), UKCP reg. Psychotherapist.

Journey of  Gestalt Dreamwork: from Perls to the Relational Paradigm, Helsinki 18.5.2019 

Dreams and dreamwork are an integral part of Gestalt Therapy know-how. Fritz Perls has brought in several crucial concepts and methods. But since his fascinating workshops, other Gestalt thinkers, in particular Isadore From and his Italian followers, have suggested new insights. In this workshop, we will pass through the development of Gestalt dreamwork and experience different approaches through excercises.  

Martin Jára (1961), Czech psychologist, has been practising Gestalt therapy for 30 years. Today, he is focused on training and supervision. He has conducted dozens of workshops in the area of dreamwork for clients and professionals alike, and published several articles and a book. The latest article "Il sogno nella relazione e la relazione nel sogno" was published in Quaderni di Gestalt (2018/2). He is convinced a dream is like a poem: if  you analyse it, you can miss its magic.

MOVING TOWARDS THE EDGE- An Advanced International Event in Gestalt Therapy, Spain

Leaders: Ruella Frank, Jean-Marie Robine and Michael Vincent Miller

Location: Bilbao, Spain


An Advanced International Event in Gestalt Therapy

This six-day program, a collaboration among Michael Vincent Miller, Ruella Frank and Jean-Marie Robine, three international trainers and theorists, is intended for experienced practitioners as well as trainers of Gestalt therapy. The emphasis is on expanding possibilities and exploring new horizons in our work. Foundational concepts of Gestalt therapy, such as contacting, contact-boundary, theory of self, etc., will be scrutinized and given new shape. Some of our concerns to be taken up: The phenomenology of movement in early development and therapy; anxiety, depression, and trauma from a temporal point of view; the central place of form in the aesthetics of health and pathology; reflexivity--the moving I and the feeling Me--in the theory of self.

Each half-day, one of the presenters will open the topic and the other two join in to contribute to a further illumination of the theme, and arrive at an integration of our various perspectives. There also will be ample time for experiments, small group discussion, and therapy demonstrations to ground this new material in participants’ experience.


Workshop + lunches : 1200 €

Early bird (before Jan 31th) : 1050 €

Latecomers (after May 20 th) : 1350 €

The Basics of Psychopathology - A Gestalt Therapy Approach, Helsinki

The Basics of Psychopathology- A Gestalt Therapy Approach - Training for professional Gestalt therapists

Helsinki, Finland

June - December 2018

As Gestalt therapists, how can we approach psychopathology and diagnosis?

How does our theory open new horizons on human suffering and contemporary disturbances?

How is the understanding of clinical issues enhanced by our radical contact-boundary perspective?

In 2018, the Finnish Gestalt Association will arrange training in the basics of psychopathology in Helsinki. The workshops offer the possibility to discuss and learn about major clinical issues and to find new understanding of the suffering that characterises modern societies. This approach to psychopathology and diagnosis connects clinical practice to wider social phenomena.

The training, which consists of three weekend-long workshops over a period of eight months, will take place in Helsinki. It will be run in English by seasoned trainers from France and Italy. We welcome professional Gestalt therapists in Finland and other countries to participate in this series of interesting workshops!

The Finnish Gestalt Association is delighted about the opportunity to introduce the approach and work conducted by Gianni Francesetti and Margherita Spagnuolo Lobb, both international trainers from the Istituto di Gestalt HCC, and Jean-Marie Robine, a renowned Gestalt therapist and trainer from France. The Italian training institute is today widely recognized for further developing the principles of Gestalt therapy especially in terms of the ongoing dialogue with the demands of contemporary society. Jean-Marie Robine who contributes to training programmes in a number of countries was the director of Institut Français de Gestalt-thérapie from 1980 to 2007. All trainers are actively contributing to the development of Gestalt therapy, and are authors of many articles and books.

The schedule of the psychopathology workshops


Friday 1 to 3 June 2018: 

Introduction to the training & Absence is a bridge between us. Gestalt therapy with depressive experiences. 

The introduction to the training will be given by psychiatrist and Gestalt therapist Gianni Francesetti, who will lead the first workshop. According to the WHO, depression is currently the fourth most urgent global health problem. Therapists need to find orientation as to what risks, resources, tools or therapeutic position, for example, they have to be able to consider when working with depressive experiences. Apart from theoretical frames, practical experiences will be explored and discussed from a Gestalt therapy perspective. The goal is to provide practical skills to improve the competences of psychotherapists working with this common form of suffering. 



7 to 9 September 2018:

Anxiety and Shame

The second workshop will be led by French psychologist and psychotherapist Jean-Marie Robine. In the first part of the workshop we will look at how anxiety interrupts or disturbs the gestalt sequence and allows specific disturbing modalities of contact to “enter the dance” in a specific moment. Jean-Marie Robine has researched and written extensively on shame. He is especially interested in how the therapeutic situation activates or creates shame in the client: “It is the gaze of the other which produces the shame”. In the second part of this both theoretical and experiential workshop shame will also be connected with the Gestalt therapy approach to field perspective and a Gestalt therapy theory of affects and emotions. 



6 to 8 December 2018:

Narcissistic and borderline experiences: advancements in Gestalt therapy

The third workshop will be led by psychologist and psychotherapist Margherita Spagnuolo Lobb who is the founder and current director of Istituto di Gestalt HCC. She invites us to look at relational disturbances which emerge from social change. Clinical evidence is today on depressive disturbances, or narcissistic and borderline experiences, gender identity, anxiety disturbances and body desensitization. In this seminar narcissistic and borderline experiences will be approached, and the traumatic basic experiences in these personality disorders will be described and seen in clinical examples. 



A maximum of 25 participants will be accepted for this training. Previous training in gestalt therapy and a minimum of clinical experience is required.

REGISTRATION:For further information, please contact Mia Mård ( or tel. +358-40-0435350).Mia Mård, Pellervontie 12 A 4, 00610 HELSINKI by 31 January 2018.

Embodied Intersubjectivity, Sweden

Leader:  Ruella Frank, Ph.D.

Location: Bromma, Stockholm

Dates: 28.-29.4.2018

Embodied Intersubjectivity
a developmental and movement oriented
approach to psychotherapy

In this 2-day workshop, Dr Ruella Frank will explore the intricate relational moves of embodied intersubjectivity that form a basis of communication, initially between parent and baby but then throughout life.

The movement repertoire that develops in the first year of life is a language that conveys our most pressing desires, intentions and emotions. These expressive movements, acquired in the company of significant others, go on to become the tacit core of adult behaviour in everyday experience and, of course, in the psychotherapy relationship too.

It is on the details of this somatic expression of affect and relational intent that we will focus during the workshop, developing our understanding of the meaning and emotional significance of these somatic communications and skills in applying those insights to the therapy work.

Ruella Frank, Ph.D., is founder and director of the Center for Somatic Studies, and faculty at Gestalt Associates for Psychotherapy and the New York Institute for Gestalt Therapy. Ruella was a student of Laura Perls, one of the founders of Gestalt Therapy. She teaches workshops throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and various European countries.

Ruella is the author of several chapters in various publications, as well as the book Body of Awareness: A Somatic and Developmental Approach to Psychotherapy, (2001, GestaltPress, available in 4 languages) and co-authored The First Year and The Rest of Your Life: Movement, Development and Psychotherapeutic Change (2010, Routledge Press, available in 3 languages).

Keho oppaana -viikonloppukurssi hahmoterapeuteille marraskuussa

Keho oppaana -viikonloppukurssi hahmoterapeuteille marraskuussa

Olet lämpimästi tervetullut nollaamaan, virkistymään,  lepäämään ja myös yllättymään oman viisaan kehosi äärelle la 18.- su 19.11.2017 (la klo 10-17 ja su klo 10-15).

Keho oppaana -kurssin menetelminä käytämme Autenttinen liike -elementtejä, stressinpurkumenetelmä TRE:tä (Tension & Stress Releasing Exercises) sekä muita kehotietoisuutta lisääviä harjoitteita. TRE käynnistää kehon luonnollisen palautumismekanismin, joka vapauttaa kehon syviä lihasjännityksiä. Autenttisen liikkeen menetelmässä asetutaan liikkeen, asentojen, piirtämisen ja havainnoinnin keinoin oman kokemuksen äärelle. Aiempaa kokemusta menetelmistä ei tarvita.

TRE (Tension & Stress Releasing Exercises) on helposti omaksuttava kehollinen stressinpurkumenetelmä, joka perustuu kehon biologiseen ja neurologiseen kykyyn palautua stressaavista tilanteista. Harjoitus käynnistää lihasten vapinana tai tärinänä alkavan luonnollisen palautumismekanismin. Harjoituksen aluksi tehdään yksinkertainen liikesarja, joka on helppo oppia, ja sen vaikutuksesta kehoa rentouttava vapina käynnistyy. TRE:stä on valmistunut ensimmäinen suomenkielinen tutkimus (2017), jossa psykiatrista hoitotyötä tekevät ovat kuvanneet TRE:n vaikutuksia: mm. stressin väheneminen, aktivaatiotason laskeminen, unenlaadun paraneminen ja fyysis-psyykkisen hyvinvoinnin lisääntyminen. Linkki opinnäytteeseen:

Autenttinen liike on liikkeellisesti vapaa metodi, jossa asetutaan liikkeen ja vuorovaikutuksen keinoin oman kokemuksen äärelle. Työskentely pohjautuu spontaaniin liikkumiseen toisen ihmisen, todistajan läsnäollessa. Autenttisen liikkeen työskentelyssä liikutaan silmät kiinni, mikä syventää liikkumisen kokemusta. Autenttisen liikkeen työskentely mahdollistaa välittömän kokemuksen itsestä sellaisena kuin olemme. Tämä vapauttaa voimavarojamme ja sillä on tervehdyttävä vaikutus keho-mieleemme. Autenttinen liike on saanut alkunsa 1960-luvulla tanssiterapeutti Mary Whitehousen yhdistäessä toisiinsa ekspressiivisen tanssin ja jungilaisen
aktiivisen mielikuvituksen käsitteen. Lisätietoa menetelmästä:

VIIKONLOPUN HINTA: 120eur (sis. ALV 10%). Yrityksen kautta maksavat +ALV 10% eli 132eur.
PAIKKA: Helsinki, ilmoitetaan myöhemmin.
ILMOITTAUTUMISET JA LISÄTIETOA: Kirsi Törmi, , p. 050-3080203. Ilmoittautumiset 22.9.2017 mennessä. Max osallistujamäärä 14. Mikäli kurssille ei tule riittävästi osallistujia hahmoterapiayhdistyksen kautta, kurssia tarjotaan myös muille terapeuttista työtä tekeville.

Tanssitaiteen tohtori, hahmoterapeutti, mentor, TRE-ohjaaja Kirsi Törmi (1970) on tehnyt monipuolisen uran tanssija-koreografi-tutkijana. Tällä hetkellä Kirsi työskentelee tuntiopettajana Taideyliopiston Teatterikorkeakoulussa (somaattiset menetelmät),  osa-aikaisena tutkijana Cuporen ArtsEqual-hankkeessa sekä hahmoterapeuttina ja TRE-ohjaajana yksityisvastaanotollaan Kajaanissa.

Practising Theory and Practice of Gestalt Therapy, Switzerland

Leaders: Margherita Spagnuolo Lobb, Niklaus Brantschen

Location: Lassalle Haus Bad Schoenbrunn, Edlibach/Switzerland.

Convened by Schweizerischer Verein für Gestalttherapie und Integrative Therapie SVG and Giorg.Services.

Nurturing a sense of belonging in a desensitised world: A Workshop with Dr. Margherita Spagnuolo Lobb, Gestalt Therapist and Niklaus Brantschen, Zen Master.

How to support self-regulation and interest into the other and life today? We feel the need to develop traditional tools of Gestalt therapy, while keeping rooted in our basic principles.

Zen is delightful and annoying. Zen is frustrating and rewarding. Zen is rational and not rational. Attracted by a precise and demanding practise, we are often discouraged from sitting in silence. Assuming to know what is meant by sitting in silence, this apparent knowing get lost and get weird the more we try to approach it.

Pricing: Program 445.00 Swiss Francs plus accommodation 480.00 Swiss Francs (room1) or 640.00 Swiss Francs (room2). Accommodation includes full board (breakfast, three course lunch and three course dinner).

2 erillistä workshopia 8-9.9.2017 Attachment, EFT and Trauma Work: Relational Resources in the Treatment of Trauma 10.9.2017 Working with Emotional Withdrawal

Kouluttaja: James Thomas

Järjestäjä: Suomen Pariterapiayhdistys

Paikka: Helsinki


Attachment, EFT and Trauma Work: Relational Resources in the Treatment of Trauma

Attendees will develop an attachment-based view of trauma, and how relational therapy aids and may be a primary intervention in addressing trauma. Attendees will learn about how trauma outside of the relationship can impact a couple and ways to address this trauma to strengthen their bond. We explore how couples or family therapy provides an optimal place for healing childhood sexual abuse and other childhood traumas with adult clients. 


Working with Emotional Withdrawal:

Attendees will visit the world of emotional withdrawers inorder to strengthen their work with couples and families. These people often present as not having strong emotions, not understanding why their partner wants more from them, and feeling blamed in the negative cycle by their partner. We will look at how emotional withdrawal typically reflects an avoidant attachment style. We will learn and practice applying EFT techniques and focus to access and make space for emotional withdrawal in the room. Understanding emotional withdrawal and making space for it in the session has a significant positive impact on couple´s therapy work.

Summer Programme for Gestalt Psychotherapists, Siracusa, Italy

And of course – to have good Italian food, swim in the Ionian Sea, and visit many historical (Greek and Roman) sites.

In the dance between therapist and client, Italy

Leader: Nancy McWilliams

Location: Siracusa, Italy

In the dance between therapist and client.
 Aesthetic and phenomenological diagnosis in Gestalt therapy
Two days of Theory, Clinics and Research

It’s well known that the quality of the therapeutic alliance is the best predictor of the therapeutic outcome, beyond the kind of disturbance lamented by the client.

The phenomenological and aesthetic perspectives within which we participate rather than objectify the world and experience it through sensory perceptions, attunement, and resonances, are proper antidotes to the desensitization common to contemporary society.

Movement - our first language. An introduction to Developmental Somatic Psychotherapy, Stockholm, Sweden

Leader: Helen Kallner

Developmental Somatic Psychotherapy is a relational and movement oriented
approach to psychotherapy within a Gestalt therapy framework.

Date: May 6-7th, 9:30 – 16.00 both days.
Cost: 2500 SEK (tax included)
Venue: Central Stockholm

Movement is central to all experience and serves as fundamental supports for contacting. The movement repertoire that develops relationally early in life is a language in itself, that conveys desires, intentions and emotions. Even though our movement patterns have changed over time, the foundation established early in life remain readily observable and available in our everyday experience.

In this workshop participants will be introduced to a movement based vocabulary that supports our ability to kinaesthetically resonate with the situation. The main theme will be our sensed, direct and aesthetic experience of the situation we live in. Participants will explore how yet unaware primary movement patterns are part of their present experience and influence daily life. We will attend to the qualities of contact that we experience kinaesthetically, and how that informs us of self and otherness.

Developmental Somatic Psychotherapy, developed by Ruella Frank PhD, is a comprehensive system of phenomenological analysis that allows practitioners to diagnose and treat their clients using movement experiments.

Helena Kallner works as a Gestalt Psychotherapists in Sweden and teaches internationally. She has trained with Ruella Frank for many years, and she is certified to teach DSP. Helena is a board member at the Gestalt Academy of Scandinavia, part of the leadership team in Relational Change and she works closely with Ekskäret Foundation

GIS, Master class “Re-discovering the Field”, Frans Meulmeester, Vihula, Estonia

Leader: Frans Meulmeester,

Organization: Gestalt Institute of Scandinavia

Location: Viluha, Estonia

Understanding the Field of the Client and the Therapist as a part of it, is one of the most powerful insights in Gestalt therapy. Gestalt therapy started as a liberation movement with a wide and complex understanding of the field. But somehow by working in our practices with individual client we have lost this perspective.
In this Masterclass we intend to focus the Field also including the social and political field. The individual is the “the chimney where the smoke of the wider field comes out”. In other words: Many of our clients also represent or express the pathology of a wider field, in fact of the society we are living in.
In the work with individual clients the risk is that we perceive and work with the client only as an individual with personal problems or with personal pathology. In that way we actually affirm the client as being “the patient”, and as being the one who is problematic in a “normal” world.
However, when we work from a field perspective we know that psychopathology is always psychopathology of the field, of the relation.
During the master class we will work with both experiments and cases to explore the deeper layers of our work with individual clients. We will broaden our awareness on our own paradigms and socio-political background.

Seminar fee 750

A unique opportunity for two of the largest international associations for Gestalt therapy to meet and learn from each other. We will co-create a fertile ground in order to explore our differences and similarities, our intentionalities for contact, our potentialities to develop theory and practice, and our wish to enjoy ourselves. The meaning of any intentionality is fully revealed only at the end of the process of co-creation: so, let’s start this process with the faith that the ground will support our next steps towards the co-creation of the aesthetic figure of contactful experience!
