It led us into a discussion of how to train competent therapists instead of therapists who simply "do Gestalt", as we often hear. An enriching experience”. Jan Roubal. “The GTFS is a foundational tool for scientific research on Gestalt Therapy and an essential reference for supervision”. Margherita Spagnuolo-Lobb “What we have been needing for years” Malcolm Parlett “Highly recommended” Edinburgh Gestalt Institute. “ A rich and rewarding workshop that made us reflect on our work and enlivened our practice” The Relational Institute, Sydney.
