Gestalt International Study Center (Gisc)
Our global community is engaged in formal study groups, annual conferences, commissioned research and the publication of books and our academic journal, Gestalt Review, now beginning its 21st year.
Three important elements distinguish our programs. Our training programs are rigorous, our methods based on years of research and successful application across disciplines, cultures and continents. The learning is applied, which means that our programs are concrete and practical, and you can put new skills to use immediately, although they may take much practice to master. The results are profound; there is a magnitude of impact in your work and in your life that is far beyond the norm. Because of this, many of our participants return year after year to GISC.
We are an independent nonprofit organization and a community of diverse individuals, anchored by the values of trust, optimism, generosity, and the importance of lifelong learning. As a nonprofit, we have the flexibility to continuously refine and explore our theory and applications, and aren’t bounded by the thinking or goals of any one individual or corporation. We are engaged in formal study groups, annual conferences, commissioned research, and the publication of books and academic journals as we seek to continuously deepen our insight into how people work well together.

Coaching at the Point of Contact Enhancing Your Skills as an Intervener: A weekend Workshop
Description: This workshop introduces participants to this radically simple yet powerful intervention model.
Participants are taught to see and articulate the competence of the client system, followed by specific structured feedback interventions in real-time client interactions. By learning to perceive the system and to provide brief, bold, and direct feedback, participants will dramatically increase their ability to create effective interventions necessary to support change and growth.
Faculty of the internationally known Cape Cod Training Program will introduce the key concepts and skills of this highly effective model through presentation of theory, client demonstrations, and practicum exercises.
This orientation to the methodology provides an excellent foundation for the practice-based intensive Cape Cod Training Program.
