The Gestalt Center for Organization & Systems Development Training Program was the first training program in the world to integrate Gestalt theory, systems theory, and organization development theories into a coherent curriculum in the field of organizational change consulting. Our perspective provides individuals with the theory, concepts, methodology, skills, and techniques for effectively intervening at the individual, two-person, group, and organizational and larger levels of systems. It offers a unique Gestalt OSD framework for designing interventions, managing change, and developing professionals in the systems within which we live and work. Current training programs conducted by the Center reflect an over 35-year evolution of concept application, teaching strategies, hands-on skill enhancement, and opportunities for both personal and professional growth. Our aspiration is that through increased awareness, knowledge, and skill, individuals can walk into a room anywhere in the world, containing any number of people, and make a difference with their presence.
Who Should Attend
The program is designed for individuals with a master’s or doctoral degree who have demonstrated competence in their field, and who have a commitment to developing effective organizations, work teams, communities, and governing bodies, and/or to large-scale organizational transformation. The program will enhance individuals’ ability to influence people and systems through increased competence and effectiveness in designing, implementing, and following through on interventions to achieve desired outcomes.
Curriculum and Methodology
Teaching methods are varied and include lectures, readings, demonstrations, fieldwork assignments, and small group practice. Feedback on a consistent basis is a critical part of the hands-on and experimental nature of these programs. Faculty ratio averages 1 faculty member for every 4 to 6 participants.
