Research into psychotherapy outcomes has identified the importance of resilience. This is our capacity to deal with adversity and to develop and adapt to change and uncertainty. Certain field conditions support resilience and some individuals clearly have an inner resourcefulness and a spirit that won’t be defeated. Resilience can be learned and need not be seen as a rare quality given to a chosen few. Recent developments in gestalt psychotherapy emphasise strengthening resilience and building positive resources in order to support therapeutic change. This residential workshop is an opportunity to develop skills in how to use this approach with your clients and also to develop and build your own resources for life and work. There will be a mix of theoretical input, personal development work, skills practice and the opportunity to take in the support of the group and increase relational resilience.
