“I don’t know how a poem takes form, I take the mud of my life and feel like a great sculptor.”

From Tradition to Growing Edges

The School offers an approach to psychopathology from a phenomenological and Gestalt therapy perspective. It represents an original and unique combination of the European tradition of phenomenological psychopathology and of contemporary Gestalt Therapy theory applied to clinical practice. Psychopathology is explored from the roots of these traditions and developed towards the edges of a radical relational perspective.

Field Theory and Process of Change

We consider psychopathology as a field phenomenon emerging in the session and aiming towards transformation in the process of therapy. Clinical sufferings and symptoms are expressions of different ways of being absent in the situation. Therapy, consequently, is the art of presence and supports the forces acting in the field and moving towards transformation.

New Directions in Clinical Practice and Social Commitment

This understanding deeply impacts the therapeutic work and opens up new ways of meeting the client and of approaching clinical situations, emerging feelings and the therapist’s interventions. Since individual suffering is indissolubly entangled with the wider field, the social dimension becomes the necessary ground to understanding the clinical phenomena and, conversely, therapy becomes the crucible to foster the social change.

PHENOMENOLOGICAL-GESTALT PSYCHOPATHOLOGY: ONLINE PROGRAM 2024-2025 Part 1

ONLINE PROGRAM

PHENOMENOLOGICAL-GESTALT PSYCHOPATHOLOGY

The program is organized in online monthly seminars: lectures followed by discussion in small groups and then by a Q&A (Questions and Answers) session. They critically address the topics from the historical, nosographic and diagnostic perspectives. The phenomenological and Gestalt understanding of every specific suffering is explored from a field theory perspective.

The first part of the program addresses the main psychopathological forms (that we call weathers), whereas the second part focuses on the personality dimensions and adjustments (that we call landscapes). The seminars of the second part are led by two trainers in order to enrich the presentation from different perspectives.
