Certificate in Gestalt Psychotherapy in Organisations
General information and rationale:
The post-graduate Certificate in Gestalt Therapy in Organisations programme, is an NCFHE accredited, MQF Level 7, part-time programme carried out over a timeframe of 1 academic year.
Organisations and Industries are complex relational fields, within which the general well-being of the individuals and of the system as a whole will determine its existence, effectiveness and outcomes. Well-organised companies endeavour to ensure healthy well-being internally while simultaneously relating effectively with the outside world/market.
Working in this field requires an understanding of the complex system of relationships between employees, including formal and informal relations. It also includes understanding how the organisation is part of a wider relational market and that its own effectiveness and survival relies on this too.
This programme offers the necessary learning, knowledge and skills needed to promote relational functioning and well-being within organisations and to diagnose and resolve both developmental and challenging issues that can arise in different types of organisations. The idea is to produce competent specialists able to offer their services on the market.

General pedagogical procedures:
This programme is delivered by different teaching and learning methods. The basic idea is that students can learn from their own experience through active involvement. The curriculum is presented through the following methods: lectures, presentations, discussions, role-plays, workshops, active work in small groups, live demonstrations, seminars etc. Reflexive and critical thinking, creativity, active involvement/ participation, abilities of synthesis and analysis will be encouraged.
EAGTI-GPTIM finds it very important that every student has the possibility to show/present his/her knowledge and what was learnt experientially. In order for this to reflect the different styles and strengths of students together with areas for further growth, a variety of methods are used including assignments, presentation and answering questions inspired by the student’s written assignment and presentation.
