Theory and Supervision


with Ruella Frank, Ph.D.

In this four session series, we will analyze the micro-movements that emerge within the relational field and that are significant to the organizing of meaning. Participants will explore their patients’ postural, gestural and breathing styles, as well as heighten awareness of their own movement patterns. Diagnosis of the unfolding therapy encounter will be explored through movement.

with Ruella Frank, Ph.D. and Michael Vincent Miller, Ph.D.

We will be teaching Gestalt therapy, moving from its foundational principles toward a modern phenomenological and embodied perspective. Each hour and a half session will focus on a particular facet of Gestalt theory and then will take up its practical application through participants presenting their cases for group discussion.
