INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF GESTALT THERAPY
WHO WE ARE
The International Association for the Advancement of Gestalt Therapy, IAAGT, is a dynamic, inclusive, energetic non-profit organization committed to the associating of its members in the advancement of theory, philosophy, practice and research in Gestalt therapy and its various applications. This includes, but is not limited to, personal growth, mental health, education, organization and systems development, political and social development, and the fine and performing arts.
We are an experiment, an ongoing organic process of Gestalt formation.
We provide the ground for the enrichment, articulation and support of the constantly emerging figure that is Gestalt therapy. We are not part of any other organization. We welcome members of all races, ethnicities, religions, ages, sexual preferences, and differing abilities/disabilities. We attempt to operate on as much of a consensus model as our far-flung membership and meeting structure allow.
IAAGT has a wide international member base including psychiatrists, psychotherapists, psychologists, social workers, counselors, teachers, academics, writers, artists, performers, organizational consultants, coaches, political and social analysts, activists, and students.
ATTEND A CONFERENCE
Our IAAGT Biennial Conference is intended for Gestalt practitioners and psychotherapists, as well as any other individuals who wish to integrate Gestalt into their practice. Our next conference will be in Veracruz, Mexico in 2024.
In cooperation with other Gestalt organizations around the world, we support the organizing of regular International Research Conferences.
Our most recent conference was held September 2022 in Hamburg, Germany.
