The New York Institute for Gestalt Therapy (NYIGT) is the original gestalt therapy institute, founded by Laura and Fritz Perls in 1952. Having evolved from its roots in psychoanalysis, gestalt therapy has been and remains a dynamic force in psychotherapy. Gestalt Therapy’s commitment to dialogue, its focus on the here and now, and other core concepts were harbingers of changes that would eventually manifest in a range of psychodynamic psychotherapies. NYIGT remains an instrumental voice in the development of gestalt therapy and is a meaningful presence in the lives of gestalt practitioners and clients the world over.
NYIGT is dedicated to gestalt therapy’s ongoing emergence and development. Stimulated by theme-centered panelists, symposium participants will explore the Institute’s journey as a teaching and learning community. Attendees will be invited to address figures they notice forming in the immediate field and to engage in dialogue that actively co-creates gestalt therapy’s growing edge in 2018 and beyond.
This celebration is open to gestalt therapy practitioners and trainees, therapists from other orientations, educators, artists, friends and all who are interested. NYIGT is committed to learning from one another!
