23rd Jan 2021: “I can’t keep calm because of sociology”


As Gestalt therapists we cannot ignore sociological and cultural phenomena, especially if we call ourselves a field-centered approach. Gestalt Therapy theory needs to decentre the subject even further. In the seminar some contemporary social theories will be explored, among them critical theory, poststructuralism, general systems theory, social phenomenology, ANT. We will derive from them – an experiential part of the seminar – a larger understanding of the world we and our clients live in and explore how to act upon this understanding in the therapy room and outside of it.
