My certificates and description

Basic training program for gestalt-therapists

Here I learned the basics of psychotherapeutic craft/art. I studied theory, philosophy, methods and history of development of gestalt-therapy. I made the biggest mistakes and was taught the most painful lessons in this group, due to the fact that training is based on processing one’s own life experience.

Advanced training program for gestalt-therapists – «Mastering of gestalt-therapy and supervision»

It is a four year training program for supervisors in gestalt approach. It is built around a psychotherapy group and a supervision group. In the former, one of the program teachers takes the role of the therapist and in the letter, group members provide therapy for each other and receive supervision from the other two teachers of the program. Lectures, seminars, reports and round tables are also included in the course.

Specialist (Master) degree in psychology

Academic higher psychological education. This is my second degree. I decided to take it online, as I did not see any point in being present in a classroom with teachers who are sick and tired of life and their job repeating lifelessly some theories and facts. Whereas the Internet has excellent, classical and modern materials in video, text and audio formats on psychology absolutely for free. One can study day and night as much as desired. This university gave me a curriculum, list of subjects and literature, the rest I did myself.

Specialization «Theory of personality development in gestalt approach: Age crises»

During this educational project I learnt psychoanalytic theories of personality development, principles and patterns of psyche development and functioning. I also learnt all age periods from birth till death, personality crises and developmental tasks during the whole lifetime. We studied by analyzing personal stories of group members. We also learnt subconscious psychological defenses that help to adapt to negative phenomenons of interpersonal and inner worlds.

Specialization «Working with crisis and trauma in gestalt-therapy»

Here we were taught to work with psychological trauma, acute stress disorders, posttraumatic stress disorders. As well as working with crises, such as, personal crisis, age related, relationship crisis. We were also trained to work with loss and grief. These are essential instruments for any psychologist who works with people.

Specialization «Clinical gestalt-therapy»

Here I studied clinical and gestalt diagnosis, strategies and methods of work with different personality types, neurosis and psychopathy, types of character organisation. This specialization provided myself with rich experience of psychotherapeutic and psychiatric clinicians of 20th and 21st century.

Specialization «Group psychotherapy within gestalt-approach»

Thanks to this educational program I learned the basics of group dynamic and the psychology of small groups. Therapeutic group, as society in miniature, is a powerful tool for personal development and mastering of useful social skills. In my experience group therapy has had a strong and positive effect on me.

Specialization «Dialog-phenomenological model of gestalt therapy»

This specialization is focused on how to organize client-therapeutic relationship where can be established contact of two human beings, a client and a therapist, with the purpose of overcoming (processing) or growing out of actual psycho emotional states.

Certificate of participation in gestalt intensiv

It is an educational event (i.e. summer school) on practical psychology in gestalt-approach. Gestalt intensiv consists of three modules, three days each and two days for rest in between modules. Schedule. Before lunch: lecture, therapy group and individual therapy. After lunch, siesta an hour or two, again therapy group, dinner and at the end of the day a processing group for acting out or venting the feelings and impressions accumulated during the day. Thus, for one day you receive one hour of lecture on practical psychology, one hour of individual therapy, three and a half hours of group therapy and one hour processing group.

Certificate of participation in the conference

Annual conference of the Society of psychologists practicing gestalt-approach. It runs for three days and consists of multiple events, such as, a general lecture, workshops, reports, symposiums, presentations of work cases and an open mic for discussing different subjects. Also round tables, discussion and process groups take place at the conference.
