The Appalachian Gestalt Therapy Institute, located in beautiful Asheville, North Carolina, is excited to announce the expansion of our enrichment program! We will be hosting small specialty workshops presented by those in the Gestalt field, or those who may have something new to offer that would complement Gestalt training. These workshops can be from 1/2 day, to two or three days in length, and cover many topics, as long as the presenter has a working knowledge of Gestalt methodology and can incorporate this knowledge into their workshops. Future Presenters If you have an area of expertise that you feel would be of interest to others and would like to inquire further about presenting, please complete the Presenter's application and return it to us. If you have questions, please contact Nicholas Emmanuel at email@example.com or call him at 828.508.4539. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
