Belgrado Gestalt conference

The conference was attended by 550 psychotherapists and students, coming from countries of ex-Juogoslavia e from Malta.

It has been a good occasion for some trainers to meet after many years, like in this picture with Jean Marie Robine, Bertram Mueller, Michael Vincent Miller and Margherita Spagnuolo Lobb

We wish Lidjia Pecotic, tireless and generous soul of this event, to continue to support Gestalt therapy in the Balcans and in Malta.
