Aging, Illness, and Loss: Being a Fully Human Therapist

This presentation’s focus is on enhancing one’s own experiences of aging, illness, and loss and to regard these experiences as an essential part of being a fully human and authentic therapist. The assumption is that by confronting these issues in our own lives, we can be more present with our patients as they confront these issues in their own. This sensitivity is not without its challenges.
Presenter: James Battaglia

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 offerings include monthly presentation meetings that are open, without charge, to anyone interested in attending and cover a range of contemporary topics. To see the full schedule, click here.
