Gestalt Experience Workshop: Enhancing Inter-personal Interactions
2-Day Experiential Workshop
In today’s complex and digital-dominated world, inter-personal connection has never been more important or more difficult! Relating meaningfully with others can not only enrich our personal life, but also benefit our work life. However, the ability to relate and form authentic connection is easily compromised with the busy-ness and distractions created by information overload. Often, we find it easier to ‘withdraw’ and put on the back-burner our need to create stimulating and supportive relationships..
Relating meaningfully with others is based on our capacity to be self-aware, curious and open to another's viewpoint, and having the skills to communicate effectively and with integrity. This potentially transformative Workshop shows how the Gestalt approach and core Gestalt principles can help us develop this capacity so that we can create and sustain satisfying inter-personal relationships. The Workshop focuses on enhancing learning through direct, present experience and respectful exchange with those around us. It provides clarity and insight into the ways we can relate with clients, colleagues, partners, friends and family.
This Workshop satisfies the introductory pre-requisite for the Gestalt Asia Coach Certification Program. In the Workshop, you will discover and explore the following:
Use Gestalt methods and tools to make meaningful connection
