In February 2013, we finished the first year of the 4 year training.
During this year we focussed on basic priciples of the Gestalt theory and methodology and how they can be implemented in the Nepali culture.
Both students as we as core team, enjoyed the common exploration of how these basis principles can be applied and translated into an appropriate approach in counselling and psychotherapy in Nepal.
Especially within the context of the Nepali culture, where family life is very important, it is necessary to see the client and his/her topic within this context of the family structure. During this last block we focussed on the use of Gestalt constellations in working with individual clients and client systems.
At the end of this block, we were happy that we could give a certificate of full attendance to 8 of the participants.
They were present all blocks and also attendeded all intervision meetings that were organized. For those students, who could not attend all blocks due to work or family obligations, we will organize extra blocks during the second year.
Our goal is, that in the end all participants will receive a certificate for full attendance. Therefore, we also provided scholarships to ca. 12 students, which made it possible for them to participate in the training.
