Postgraduate Specialization recognized by the AETG (Spanish Association of Gestalt Therapy)

Training to Broaden the Gaze

A theoretical and experiential training designed for those who have completed a growth process and want to continue researching, developing and cultivating their creativity through the art of Clown and Gestalt.
The intention of this Post-Graduate program is to offer therapeutic accompaniment professionals some very efficient tools for group interventions, helping people to explore and put their shadow into play on stage through a character built from the clumsiest, the most innocent and also the most genuine part of each of us- our clown!

Clown, when joined with Gestalt (or vice versa) allows us to set a playful focus- and not for that a less profound one- on our unfinished business- it gives us an opportunity to understand that from play, expression and emptiness emerge the new, the different, the creative…
A possibility of having another perspective on therapeutic process.

Who is this program for?
For graduates of Gestalt diploma program, psychology graduates, medical doctors, psychiatrists, nurses, educators, social workers, artists, socio-cultural entertainers and in general, any helping professional or person interested in their personal growth (who wants to add to their resource repertoire and has completed a therapeutic process).

This is a pioneering training program in Spain
