What is Gestalt Therapy?

The first module of the course examines Gestalt therapy as a specialized approach to dealing with psychological health issues. The history and timeline of Gestalt therapy, as well as the history of psychological health therapies in general, are covered in this section of the course. The goal of this module is to provide the groundwork for information that we may subsequently build on, all the way up to the usage of Gestalt therapy today.

Everything, from brain biology to lifestyle, is viewed through the lens of psychology. It is necessary to have a basic comprehension of these viewpoints in order to grasp Gestalt psychology.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Biological Psychology
  • Cognitive Psychology
  • Evolutional Psychology
  • Psychodynamic Psychology
  • Humanistic Psychology
  • Gestalt Psychology
  • Timeline

Part 3: The Here and Now

Gestalt therapy focuses on the present moment and what is going on inside it. As a result, it complements the teaching of mindfulness and conscious awareness. In many aspects, this therapeutic type is related to holistic psychology. The effects of the following factors on general excellent health and well-being are constantly acknowledged in holistic psychology and health.

Part 4: Summary

Only recently has Western medicine begun to return to the body-mind and emotional intelligence, knowledge of the present moment, and mindfulness of emotions as essential components of optimal psychological health. They were used by the Gestalt method a long time ago, but under a different name.

Module 2: Concepts

Part 1: Concepts of Gestalt Therapy

Learning Objectives:

  • Be conscious of the importance of Field Therapy and its influence
  • Explore the link between the Human Givens approach and Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs

Concepts

An idea can also be referred to as a model of approach in the context of treatment. It is also a perception, a concept that is central to gestalt therapy. The methodology employs a variety of concepts, which are detailed below.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Phenomenology
  • Achieving Insight

Part 2: Field Theory

The premise for this notion is that no one part of an individual's life can exist without affecting all of the other aspects. Because gestalt therapists interact with every aspect of the here and now, the field theory serves as the foundation for this treatment method. As a result, when working with a client, a gestalt therapist will evaluate the following areas at the precise instant at which they occur, in the present.

Part 3: Existentialism and Phenomenology

Existentialism is the study of observation, self-compassion, and honesty toward oneself. Stress, worry, and a general sense of uneasiness are the results of being dishonest to oneself and our overall needs. This notion pushes the customer to analyze their worldview and how honest they are while examining their own requirements.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Resources

Part 4: Summary

  • Understand how our brains store memory and the link to learned messages

Neurobiology and the Brain

To completely comprehend gestalt therapy, it is necessary to grasp not just the mind but also the biology of the brain and nerve system as it relates to psychological health and well-being. The third module of the course examines the biological processes associated with various states of mind and why the mind-body connection is today at the forefront of medical treatment.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • The Human Brain
  • Brain Chemistry
  • Neuron
  • Synapse
  • Automatic Response
  • Conscious Response

Part 2: The Frontal Lobes

The frontal lobe is the part of the brain that gathers data, makes rational judgments, and is ultimately responsible for non-emotional thinking and behavior. This may be shown pretty clearly in brain scans. The entire frontal portion of the brain is classified as having many lobes. In response to stimuli, the brain region communicates with the opposite side of the face and body.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • The Limbic Area

Part 3: The Nervous System

The nervous system is divided into several sections and plays many different roles. It is made up of the brain, the spinal cord, and nerves that flow throughout the body. The Autonomic Nervous System is the region of the nerve system responsible for involuntary nervous responses. The Somatic division is concerned with reactions that are specifically selected inside the brain.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Stress
  • Acute Stress

Part 4: Storage and Memories

The majority of brain storage occurs in the parietal lobe of the brain. This part of the brain is intimately tied to life achievement, relationships, trust, and self-esteem. Everything we have learnt throughout our lives is stored in the brain's storage region. This region of the brain takes an experience, gives it meaning, and stores it as a fact.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Stages

Part 5: Summary

This section has explained some of the biological reasons behind behavior. Any type of therapeutic service must involve fundamental brain understanding as well as awareness.

It also takes into account how the therapist performs throughout the activities that are part of the treatment sessions.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • The Four Types of Dialogue
  • Inclusion and Empathy
  • The Benefits of Presence

Part 2: Live Through Dialogue

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Verbal and Non-Verbal Conversation
  • Methodology
  • Taking Responsibility
  • Boundaries to Happiness

Part 3: Detailed Awareness

Gestalt therapy's goal is to integrate consciousness and then move on after it has been established. This will cover all aspects of the client's life, including the troublesome ones. The client learns to be completely aware of the things that impact them, as well as how they respond to them.

Therapy in Practice

The sixth module of the course examines therapy as a comprehensive approach. While gestalt therapy is the focus of the course, it is critical to recognize that the approaches, as well as the gestalt exercises, may be employed to some extent, but only in a holistic environment unless they are a certified psychotherapist or other professional therapy position.

  • Service Definition

Part 2: Business Plan

The primary purpose of a business plan is to certify that an enterprise is viable and financially feasible.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Sole Trader
  • Accounting
  • Tax

Part 6: Standing Out from the Competition

Other service providers who are directly or indirectly competing for the same consumer base as the individual constitute the business competition.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Insurance
  • Additional Income
  • Self-Belief
Recognition & Accreditation

Gestalt therapy focuses on the present moment and what is going on inside it. As a result, it complements the teaching of mindfulness and conscious awareness. In many aspects, this therapeutic type is related to holistic psychology. The effects of the following factors on general excellent health and well-being are constantly acknowledged in holistic psychology and health.

Part 4: Summary

Only recently has Western medicine begun to return to the body-mind and emotional intelligence, knowledge of the present moment, and mindfulness of emotions as essential components of optimal psychological health. They were used by the Gestalt method a long time ago, but under a different name.

Module 2: Concepts

Part 1: Concepts of Gestalt Therapy

Learning Objectives:

  • Be conscious of the importance of Field Therapy and its influence
  • Explore the link between the Human Givens approach and Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs

Concepts

An idea can also be referred to as a model of approach in the context of treatment. It is also a perception, a concept that is central to gestalt therapy. The methodology employs a variety of concepts, which are detailed below.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Phenomenology
  • Achieving Insight

Part 2: Field Theory

The premise for this notion is that no one part of an individual's life can exist without affecting all of the other aspects. Because gestalt therapists interact with every aspect of the here and now, the field theory serves as the foundation for this treatment method. As a result, when working with a client, a gestalt therapist will evaluate the following areas at the precise instant at which they occur, in the present.

Part 3: Existentialism and Phenomenology

Existentialism is the study of observation, self-compassion, and honesty toward oneself. Stress, worry, and a general sense of uneasiness are the results of being dishonest to oneself and our overall needs. This notion pushes the customer to analyze their worldview and how honest they are while examining their own requirements.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • The Human Givens
  • Physical Needs
  • Emotional Needs
  • Resources

Part 4: Summary

Gestalt therapy themes intersect with many different psychological techniques.

Part 1: The Human Brain

Learning Objectives:

  • Be aware of the nervous system and links to stress
  • Understand how our brains store memory and the link to learned messages

Neurobiology and the Brain

To completely comprehend gestalt therapy, it is necessary to grasp not just the mind but also the biology of the brain and nerve system as it relates to psychological health and well-being. The third module of the course examines the biological processes associated with various states of mind and why the mind-body connection is today at the forefront of medical treatment.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • The Human Brain
  • Brain Chemistry
  • Neuron
  • Synapse
  • Automatic Response
  • Conscious Response

Part 2: The Frontal Lobes

The frontal lobe is the part of the brain that gathers data, makes rational judgments, and is ultimately responsible for non-emotional thinking and behavior. This may be shown pretty clearly in brain scans. The entire frontal portion of the brain is classified as having many lobes. In response to stimuli, the brain region communicates with the opposite side of the face and body.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • The Limbic Area

Part 3: The Nervous System

The nervous system is divided into several sections and plays many different roles. It is made up of the brain, the spinal cord, and nerves that flow throughout the body. The Autonomic Nervous System is the region of the nerve system responsible for involuntary nervous responses. The Somatic division is concerned with reactions that are specifically selected inside the brain.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Stress
  • Acute Stress

Part 4: Storage and Memories

The majority of brain storage occurs in the parietal lobe of the brain. This part of the brain is intimately tied to life achievement, relationships, trust, and self-esteem. Everything we have learnt throughout our lives is stored in the brain's storage region. This region of the brain takes an experience, gives it meaning, and stores it as a fact.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Stages

Part 5: Summary

This section has explained some of the biological reasons behind behavior. Any type of therapeutic service must involve fundamental brain understanding as well as awareness.

  • Inclusion and Empathy
  • The Benefits of Presence

Part 2: Live Through Dialogue

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Verbal and Non-Verbal Conversation
  • Methodology
  • Taking Responsibility
  • Boundaries to Happiness

Part 3: Detailed Awareness

  • Be aware of the importance of setting goals for the future

Therapy in Practice

The sixth module of the course examines therapy as a comprehensive approach.

  • Activity Scheduling
  • Social Activities

  • Service Definition

  • Blogging

Part 4: General Marketing

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Sole Trader
  • Accounting
  • Tax

Part 6: Standing Out from the Competition

Other service providers who are directly or indirectly competing for the same consumer base as the individual constitute the business competition.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Insurance
  • Additional Income
  • Self-Belief
Recognition & Accreditation
