Healing Shame Relationally -A Training with Gary Yontef

Saturday, February 21st, 10am - 5pm
Cultural Integration Fellowship, SF
Cost: $100 / $80 (interns and students) 

Bay Area Gestalt Institute is thrilled to welcome Gary Yontef, PhD, to San Francisco. During this day-long workshop, the esteemed trainer, writer and gestalt therapist will present his theory on shame, through the lens of relational gestalt, and its clinical applications. The day will also include abundant opportunities to witness and be part of demonstrations of the theory.


Shame is one of the most common and complex aspects of the therapeutic process—join us for this unique opportunity to learn from a master in the field as he offers clear and concrete ways to fearlessly work with this ubiquitous phenomenon.

Based in Los Angeles, Gary Yontef is diplomate in Clinical Psychology with American Board of Professional Psychology and a fellow of the Academy of Clinical Psychology. He has been a gestalt therapist since training with Frederick Perls and James Simkin in 1965 and a supervisor and trainer since 1971. Past president of the Gestalt Therapy Institute of Los Angeles (GTILA), he was chairman of the faculty there for 18 years and has been on the editorial board of the International Gestalt Journal, an associate editor of theGestalt Review and is editorial advisor of the British Gestalt Journal.
