A world-wide membership organization addressing the needs of the gestalt therapy community

We Are The Original Gestalt Therapy Institute, Established By Fritz And Laura Perls In 1952.

As we were then, so are we now: a teaching/learning community where we explore ever-evolving Gestalt theory as experienced in and expressed through the practice of therapy, group work and organizational development. Presentations mine the history of Gestalt theory and examine the larger intellectual context within which current theory is developing. Anyone with an interest in Gestalt ideas, applications and practices is invited to join our community and membership organization.

Our Presentation meetings are open, without charge, to anyone interested in attending and cover a range of contemporary topics. Please see the full schedule by clicking here.

In addition to our monthly Presentation Programs, there are three Business meetings through the year. We also sponsor special events and encourage participation in relevant conferences. We hope you will join us for any of these which draws your interest. For more information, please contact us.

We welcome you,
Ken Meyer
President, NYIGT
