Evolutions and Developments of an institute at the source: the NYIGT
di Dan Bloom
Il New York Institute for Gestalt Therapy è stato fondato nel 1951 da Fritz e Laura Perls. È l’istituto originario nel campo della Terapia della Gestalt. Anche se non ha mai offerto un formale programma di formazione né terapeuti certificati, ha insegnato e sviluppato la terapia della Gestalt attraverso le attività dei suoi membri. L’autore sostiene che il passato, il presente e anche il futuro della Terapia della Gestalt si riflette nei modi in cui la Terapia della Gestalt è vissuta e sviluppata all’interno del NYIGT.
The New York Institute for Gestalt Therapy was founded in 1951 by Fritz and Laura Perls. It is the original institute for gestalt therapy. While it never offered a formal training program or certified therapists, it taught and developed gestalt therapy through the activities of its members. The author argues that the past, present and even the future of gestalt therapy is reflected in the ways gestalt therapy lived and developed — and is developing — within the NYIGT.
