The Istituto di Gestalt H.C.C..


The Istituto di Gestalt, which was set up in July 1979, was the first School of Gestalt Therapy Training in Italy.

From the beginning the Institute was in constant touch with the founders of Gestalt Therapy, Isadore From and Jim Simkin, who were then still alive. Exchanges in the teaching and scientific fields have also been established with the most distinguished of the second-generation Gestalt therapists, Joseph Zinker, Erving Polster, Miriam Polster, Sonia March Nevis, Ed Nevis, Richard Kitzler and the New York Institute for Gestalt Therapy, Michael Vincent Miller, Ed Lynch and others.

From 1982 to 1999 the Institute has trained around 500 students, running 24 four-years Training Programs (in Venice, Rome, Naples, Palermo and Ragusa/Siracusa), as well as various two-years specialization programs (for therapy with  seriously disturbed patients, with couples and families; trainings for trainers).
