Gestalt Institute of New Orleans Training Program
Gestalt Basic Training
The entry level program was established in 1975 to teach the Gestalt approach to mental health. It is based on the belief that a person most completely learns by being part of an experiential process. Our students learn Gestalt “from the inside out.” We offer thorough training consisting of workshops, lecturess, individual counseling, weekly group participation and the satisfactory completion of book reports in the Gestalt field.
To graduate, an approximate 20 to 30 page thesis paper, equivalent multi-media presentation, or pre-approved special project demonstrating understanding of Gestalt, its application and personal growth experienced by being in the program, is to be presented to staff members and fellow students.
Students have two years to complete the 200 hours required; and we invite you to attend as your schedule permits. Our approximately once a month weekend workshops and weekly theory classes are taught by our staff members, fellow graduates and also guest faculty members from other institutes in the US and Europe. The year-round program is open to everyone. No college degrees or prior knowledge of Gestalt are required to attend in whole or part. You may attend one or two events, or as many as you want during the year, without participation in the certificate training program. However, if you choose to enroll in our 200 hour training program, you may do so at any time during the year by requesting a registration form from our office. There is a $250 registration fee, and we will keep track of your attendance hours for training credits. Join us to change your life and the lives of others!
