Contemporary Relational Gestalt Therapy — Advanced training

The therapist’s resonance

All the versions of this article: [English] [français]


FACE TO FACE training! - Workshop abroad on request

Body, emotional and affective resonances are the central material of therapeutic intervention from a relational and field perspective.
This training, which is central to the IDeT clinical perspective, will enable you to use more clearly and effectively what you experience in session with your patients

We are always affected by our patient just as they are constantly affected by us. In this complex system of resonances, the therapist can often feel helpless, arrested, even abused. We will offer participants a method and guideposts for attuning their experience to that of the patient in a way that is opening and growth-inducing.


Structure of the module
2 times 2 days OR 3 consecutive days / to be adjusted

Objectives of the module

  • to become more attentive to one’s body and emotional resonances
  • to know how to evaluate what they would push us to do
  • to use these resonances to tune in to the patient’s experience
  • from this tuning, learn to intervene in an adjusted way

Pedagogical means

  • Theoretical-clinical and experiential training in small groups
  • Clinical work based on real cases brought by the participants
  • Video illustrations
  • Learning through experience and observation (supervised practicums, didactic sequences, video), role playing and sharing time

Our modules are built around taking into account the specific needs and resources of the participants, which encourages their self-training. They offer a safe, small group, resourceful environment
