Summer Programme
for Gestalt Psychotherapists

A space and time for yourself and an update on new clinical issues

TRAINER
Margherita Spagnuolo Lobb
Dr. Psychologist, Psychotherapist

Siracusa (Italy)
July 26-30, 2017

One of the most important (and forgotten) issues for psychotherapists is to take care of oneself and to give oneself time and space to breathe, concentrate, to be able to accept the support of someone else.

This summer retreat and training will offer you the possibility to work on yourself, while being updated on contemporary Gestalt therapy theory and to reflect on the application of Gestalt therapy principles to today’s clinical problems. And of course – to have good Italian food, swim in the Ionian Sea, and visit many historical (Greek and Roman) sites.

Summer Retreat Location

The seminar will take place at the seaside in Siracuse (Italy). It will be possible to swim during breaks and after 6pm everyday. Friday afternoon is free time, when it will be possible to visit nearby historical places like Siracuse, Ortigia and Noto.

We will meet at Chamber of Commerce (in Italian Camera di Commercio), an exclusive liberty style location (a picture is attached here) just in front of the touristic port of Ortigia, Syracuse (Italy) see google maps info.

Syracuse is on the sea, it was the most important  Greek colony, so you will be close to an amazing archaeological area and at the same time in a beautiful location on the Ionio sea. The old center of
Syracuse is called Ortigia, it’s an island connected with the land by bridges, full of baroque architectures mixed with Greek temples.
