SHARING

A comfortable conversation where everyone can share everything he is troubled with at the moment. It is a possibility to talk about your feelings and fears together with students in the group. 

LECTURES

At Stage I, lectures are given at a group’s demand and have an applied nature. Students can thus apply the knowledge obtained from the very first days to understand themselves and help others. Stage II implies immersion in the theory in addition to the Gestalt Therapy practice. 

GROUP DYNAMIC

In the training process, students communicate while developing deep friendly relations. You will discover healthy ways to establish contact and will be able to use these methods in the future. 

GESTALT EXPERIMENTS

Instruments of Gestalt therapy will help you monitor your behavior and reaction in various given situations and circumstances. The whole process goes smoothly and without forcing yourself. 

PRACTICING

The first stage implies acquiring communicative and negotiation skills. In the second stage, you will acquire elementary skills of therapeutic contact and efficient promotional psychotherapeutic interventions. By the end of the second stage, you will be able to organize your private psychological practice. 

DEMONSTRATION SESSIONS

Live therapeutic work in groups where each participant can ask for private couseling and get an analysis of his/her life situation. Meanwhile, other students become observers. Everyone, thus, has a chance to plunge into the internal processes of Gestalt therapy. 

WORK IN GROUP OF THREE

Assignments when participants change roles — client/therapist/observer. In the course of performing exercises, each participant has a chance to experience the same situation from various perspectives. It develops empathy, understanding of others, and the ability to track others’ feelings. 

HOME ASSESSMENT

An obligatory part of all programs in Pogodin Academy, since psychology training does not end beyond the threshold of the Academy. Practical tasks and experiments carried out in mini-groups help in developing the skills of consciousness and empathy. Participants change roles to efficiently work through existing problems.

At some point, I realized that it is wrong that knowledge in psychotherapy is available exclusively to those willing to work in this field. I wanted the largest possible number of people to experience how therapy can change lives

В какой-то момент я осознал, что неправильно, что знания по психотерапии доступны только тем, кто хочет работать в этой профессии. Мне хотелось, чтобы как можно большее количество людей ощутило, как психотерапия может менять жизни

Still doubt?

Do you always seek to obtain quality education?

High-quality education is always an investment in yourself, your future, a thing that will always pay off

Why is the training so long?

The course is designed in a way that basic knowledge is combined with a narrow-profile one, as long as the EAGT standard involves quality and comprehensive training

Do you think that Gestalt therapy is something difficult? Do you fear that you will fail to absorb information and understand it? 

Формы преподавания понятны, эффективны и взаимно дополняют другу друга, что помогает легко усваивать полученные знания

Forms of training are clear, efficient, and complement each other, resulting in quick absorption of knowledge obtained. 

Психотерапия является важным элементом в развитии личности. С ее помощью можно избежать проблем и неурядиц в личной, деловой и семейной сферах. И решить различные ситуации, возникшие на определенном этапе жизни человека

Dream about being a psychologist but see no options without a basic psychological education? 

Для того чтобы работать немедицинским психотерапевтом, достаточно получить образование в определенном подходе. По форме это не второе высшее образование, а, как правило, профессиональная переподготовка или магистратура

My life changed after completing the course, I started listening to myself, run a private practice
