Professionals in the mental health field who may not be interested in the 3 Year Certificate Training Program at this time are welcome to explore and study the Gestalt approach by attending center sponsored programs and workshops, particularly the 1 Year Professional Education Program and the One-Day Workshop for mental health professionals, as well as the 3 Day Intensive Training Retreat.
Educational Outreach Services and Courses
