Summary:

The Gestalt Colour Therapy 2-day workshop empowers facilitators to conduct a short therapeutic programme with their clients through the use of colour.
The programme consists of a 10-phase process in which colour is used to enhance the client's awareness, self-knowledge, integration, self-support, responsibility and choice making.
The programme can be applied with primary school children, teenagers and adults.
It is a therapeutic emergency plan to improve the client's wellbeing and emotional equilibrium, in a practical and concrete fashion. The Gestalt Colour Therapy programme is time economical, protects the facilitator from burning out and is fun to take part in.
Gestalt Colour therapy's methods of raising the person's awareness and self-knowledge and not focusing on the problem but on the person, makes it suitable for a wide range of problems, because every person can benefit from dealing with his/her problems and challenges with more awareness, responsibility and choice.
Gestalt Colour therapy facilitates the client to make contact with his/her reality, whether physical, emotional, behavioural, or symptomatic, unwritten philosophy and beliefs, the environment and relationships, and to discover what solutions he/she wants to implement.

Summary:

The Gestalt Dino therapy 2-day workshop empowers facilitators of various helping professions to conduct a short therapeutic programme with their clients through the use of a Dinosaur projection and palaeontology metaphor. The programme consists of a process where the client's paleontological discovery and phenomenological description of the Dinosaur fossil (projection) is used to enhance the client's awareness, self-knowledge, integration, self-support, mobility, responsibility and choice making.

During Gestalt Dino therapy clients become aware of how different aspects of them are impacted by their environment and how they use defence mechanisms to prevent awareness and contact with their environment. Gestalt Dino therapy facilitates clients to make contact with their reality, whether physical, emotional, behavioural, or symptoms, unwritten philosophy and beliefs, the environment and relationships and to discover what solutions they want to implement.

The programme can be applied with primary school children, teenagers and adults. It is a therapeutic emergency plan to improve the client's wellbeing and emotional equilibrium, in a practical and concrete fashion.

Gestalt Dino therapy's methods of enhancing the person's awareness and self-knowledge and not focusing on the problem but on the person, makes it suitable for a wide range of problems, because every person can benefit from dealing with his/her problems and challenges with more awareness, responsibility and choice.

The Gestalt Dino therapy approach is not only a verbal therapy or abstract philosophy, but is a pragmatic involvement with people, to enable them to understand their own needs and in the here and now of their reality.

To achieve this goal, the facilitator uses Gestalt therapy experiments during the client's discovery and description of his / her Dinosaur (projection) trapped in the sediment of history. Awareness develops in a process known as the awareness- or experience cycle.

The Gestalt Dino therapy workshop equips the facilitator with the necessary attitudes, knowledge and skills to utilize the Dinosaur projection to facilitate the client to progress systematically through the experience cycle, discovering his/her true needs and solutions that fit his/her unique personal style and circumstances.

Summary:

With about 23 completed suicides and almost 460 attempted suicides every day in South Africa, suicide is an epidemic. All individuals, especially those who are in the helping professions and those who work closely with people, should become equipped to be able to identify when a person may be suicidal, how to assist that person to access resources and help as well as to feel equipped to work with this person in an effective therapeutic process. No one therapist can say, "I don't work with suicide!" If we do say this then we are probably in denial or naïve, as everyone walking into our practice with a problem, is a potential suicide. Very few University or training programmes offer extensive training in working with suicidality. Attend this three day workshop in understanding suicide and suicide intervention to be equipped to effectively work with individuals who are suicidal as well as their families. Synopsis of training programme:
•Understanding our beliefs and values in respect of suicide.
•Understanding Suicide
•SafeTALK - becoming suicide alert: Identifying the warning signs of depression and suicidality as well as becoming aware of how to keep the person with thoughts of suicide safe.
•Why do people miss, dismiss and avoid suicide?
•Suicide Risk Management: becoming a suicide expert.
•Suicide Intervention model
•Effective counselling skills
•Legalities in respect of suicide
•Ethical issues in respect of suicide
•After the suicide - helping those left behind.
