About the workshop:

This six-day program, a collaboration among Michael Vincent Miller, Ruella Frank and Jean-Marie Robine, three international trainers and theorists, is intended for experienced practitioners as well as trainers of
Gestalt therapy.

The emphasis is on expanding possibilities and exploring new horizons in our work. Foundational concepts of Gestalt therapy, such as contacting, contact-boundary, theory of self, etc., will be scrutinized and given new shape.

Some of our concerns to be taken up: The phenomenology of movement in early development and therapy; anxiety, depression, and trauma from a temporal point of view; the central place of form in the aesthetics of health and pathology; reflexivity–the moving I and the feeling Me–in the theory of self.

Each half-day, one of the presenters will open the topic and the other two join in to contribute to a further illumination of the theme, and arrive at an integration of our various perspectives. There also will be ample time for experiments, small group discussion, and therapy demonstrations to ground this new material in participants’ experience.


The workshop is open to experienced practitioners, supervisors, and trainers in gestalt therapy.
Number of participants limited to 75.
Language of this seminar will be English.
Groups of other languages may come with their own interpreter.

About the workshop:

In this 2-day workshop, Dr Ruella Frank will explore the intricate relational moves of embodied intersubjectivity that form a basis of communication, initially between parent and baby but then throughout life.

The movement repertoire that develops in the first year of life is a language that conveys our most pressing desires, intentions and emotions. These expressive movements, acquired in the company of significant others, go on to become the tacit core of adult behaviour in everyday experience and, of course, in the psychotherapy relationship too.

It is on the details of this somatic expression of affect and relational intent that we will focus during the workshop, developing our understanding of the meaning and emotional significance of these somatic communications and skills in applying those insights to the therapy work.

About the workshop:

The movement repertoire that develops in the first year of life is a language in itself that conveys desires, intentions and emotions. This early life in motion serves as the root of ongoing nonverbal interaction and later verbal expression. These expressive movements acquired in the company of significant others, become the tacit core of adult behavior in everyday experience.

Ruella Frank will explore the intricate relational moves of embodied intersubjectivity between parent and baby and it’s functional similarity to experiences unfolding within the patient-therapist relationship — with children, couples and individual adults. Put into practice, her work can expand and reorient the practitioner’s perception of human movement, enabling patient and psychotherapist together to make surprising discoveries about their interactions.


The workshop is open to psychologists, social workers, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, infant educators, as well as movement therapists/educators who wish to better understand the relationship between psychological experience and physical expression.

About the workshop:

Ongoing nonverbal interactions with our primary caregivers during the first year of life set a relational foundation that is apparent both in the everyday life of the adult and in psychotherapy. Even though our adult postural attitudes, gestures, gait and breathing patterns have changed over time, the foundations established in our first year remain readily observable and available. Attending to these patterns within psychotherapy is especially powerful.

During this workshop, participants learn how their relational styles originated through affective/movement patterns within the infant/caregiver dyad. Through movement, participants will explore these intrinsic yet unaware primary patterns which are part of present experiences and influence daily life. We then apply this understanding to the here-and-now of the client/therapist dyad


The workshop is open to psychologists, social workers, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, infant educators, as well as movement therapists/educators who wish to better understand the relationship between psychological experience and physical expression.

About the workshop:

As a phenomenological methodology, Gestalt Therapy is concerned with an understanding of how we live the situation we are living: how to analyze, describe and know it.
In this training, participants will learn the basic principles of Gestalt Therapy Theory by investigating the dynamics of movement.
In breaking down movement process to its most basic elements, we will explore ideas of Self, Creative Adjusting, Contacting, Modalities of Contacting, etc. That is, by focusing on MOVING– tactility (touch), kinesthesia (the feel of ourselves moving), and kinetics (movement itself), we will learn the essentials of how we experience ourselves with an other.
Special attention will be given to the emergence of fundamental movements in the first year of life and their constitutive participation in the moment-to-moment experiences throughout life: a developmental perspective

Sobre el taller:

Como una metodología fenomenológica, la Terapia Gestalt se ocupa de comprender cómo vivimos la situación que estamos viviendo: cómo la analizamos, la describimos y la conocemos.
En este curso, los participantes van a aprender los principios básicos de la teoría de la Terapia Gestalt investigando la dinámica del movimiento.
Fragmentando el proceso del movimiento en sus elementos más básicos, vamos a explorar los conceptos del self, del ajuste creativo, el proceso-decontacto, las modalidades del contactar, etc. Esto es, centrándonos en el MOVIMIENTO: el tacto (tocar), la cinestesia (la sensación de nosotros mismos en movimiento) y la cinética (el movimiento en sí mismo), vamos a aprender cómo nos experimentamos a nosotros mismos con un otro.
Se va a dar una atención especial al surgir de los movimientos fundamentales en el primer año de la vida y su participación constitutiva en las experiencias momento-a-momento a través de la vida: una perspectiva del desarrollo.

About the workshop:

During this experiential, experimental and theoretical workshop, we will explore the core concepts of Gestalt therapy and unify them with those of somatic development.

We will demonstrate how fundamental movements are inextricably linked to contacting as primary experience, and how kinesthetic resonance contributes to the “id of situation” and underlies intentionality.

Through mini-lecture, experiment, experiential demonstration and discussion, we will involve ourselves in action-research to enhance our fundamental comprehension and deepen our daily practice.
