2020 has presented the world with many challenges. With the trauma, loss and uncertainty we continue to face as we look into the future, it feels more vital than ever that we come together as Gestalt practitioners.
We invite you to do just that for our Annual BGJ Seminar Day, this year taking place on Saturday 7 November. Gestalt psychotherapist, climate psychologist and author Steffi Bednarek will lead the digital gathering, entitled: Necessary Derangement – Living & working in a changing field.The day will be filled with discussion, group work and creative writing surrounding the predicted increase in “pandemics, extreme weather events and global challenges” and “the role of psychotherapists in a time of death of the collective familiar”.
We know that many of you will have moved to working digitally and we’re keen to hear about those experiences. For the first time, our Annual BGJ Seminar Day will take place using video conferencing software, Zoom. While we of course look forward to the day it is safe to meet in person again, this online event opens up the opportunity for us to invite more people than usual to our event. With no national boundaries, we now hope to see faces from all over the world to discuss the global issues that affect us all.
