The Association for the Advancement of Gestalt Therapy

We are an experiment;

an ongoing organic process of gestalt formation. We provide the ground for the enrichment, articulation and support of the constantly emerging figure that is gestalt therapy. We are not part of any other organization.

We welcome members of all races, religions, ages, sexual preferences, and differing abilities/disabilities. We attempt to operate on as much of a consensus model as our far flung membership and meeting structure allow.

AAGT has a wide international member base including psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, teachers, academics, writers, artists, performers, organizational consultants and political and social analysts, activists and students.

The Aesthetic of Otherness:

meeting at the boundary of a desensitized world.
September 22-25th, 2016

The conference theme focuses on some cornerstones and growing edges of Gestalt Therapy theory and practice. We will explore the aesthetic dimension of otherness in the contemporary world that seems characterized by a high degree of desensitisation.
