Gestalt Supervisors School - a program organized by IIPG in Cracow, Poland

Gestalt Supervisors School is a course addressed for psychotherapists who run their practice for at least 10 years and are certified for at least 5 years as well as have experience in leading peers supervision.

The aim of this course is to gain abilities and improve skills of supervising so participants will be prepared for a role of supervisor of psychotherapy in different environments. The curriculum is divided into two parts. First four sessions are designed to become acquainted of different approaches towards supervision, different and unique styles of work with supervisees. Last two workshops would provide participants with competence of hipervision.

The structure of curriculum gives an opportunity to observe other supervisors and to insight own abilities what becomes a learning factor. In order to provide the highest quality we keep our groups small – maximum 16 persons. There’re guest teachers invited who are all experienced and distinguished supervisors-practitioners. From abroad: Peter Schulthess, dr Lynda Osborne and Kenneth Evans. Polish teachers who will run particular workshops are: prof. Bogdan de Barbaro, mgr Anna Tanalska and mgr Zofia Pierzchala - who is also the director of IIPG as well as originator of this course. The course finishes with the final exam.
