Radical Respect: Contemporary Gestalt Therapy in Troubled Times
The theme of Radical Respect caught our attention as we reflected on the background anxiety that impacts both therapist and client, teacher and students, that is a feature of our present times. The social demand from all quarters, included our own community, is for deeper respect. Gestalt which allows people to really sit deeply in contact with the other without judgement, can address the emotional well being of individuals (and groups), and its principles can be applied to social, political and humanitarian issues.
The 2018 International AAGT Conference convenors intend that the conference will address gestalt therapy in its totality (including its roots in social activism), and will contribute to the evolution of our vibrant and diverse community of gestalt therapists at the end of the second decade of the 21st century.
