Sexuality and Intimacy from a Gestalt Therapeutic Approach.
Spring 2020, 10:00 - 18:15 | 2600 Kč / 100 EUR | 10-12 participants
date will be decided in the beginning of 2020
In this supervision seminar, participants will have the opportunity to discuss their work with sexual issues as relational difficulties from a gestalt therapeutic (phenomenological, dialogical) approach. We will include cultural and sociopolitical backgrounds to emerging sexual difficulties that clients / patients present. Issues of sensuality, sexual attraction, and moments of intimacy within the co-created psychotherapeutic situation will be explored. The supervision of the individual participants' own cases includes working with reversed roles, experiential work in the group as a whole, triads (experimenting as psychotherapist/patient/observer), and theoretical inputs.
