Edges of Exile and Belonging…Continued
2023 Online Workshop Series

ABOUT the online workshop series

The Regional Development Committee, in collaboration with the Membership Chair and the IAAGT Board, is delighted to announce a series of workshops to be presented online as an extension of the IAAGT conference that took place in May 2022, in Ireland.

In recognition of the fact that many presenters (from both the original 2020 postponed conference and the actual in-person event that took place in May 2022) were unable to deliver their workshops, we decided to create a space for those who missed out. Out of those presenters who responded to our invitation, fourteen accepted and we now have a series of online workshops which will take place on the first weekend of the month, beginning in February 2023 through to September 2023.

All proceeds from the event will support IAAGT and its Funds: the Bud Feder Scholarship Fund; The Research Fund; and The Regional Fund, which support, in different ways, the advancement of Gestalt Therapy.

Online Workshop Conveners:
Deirdre Foley and Deirdre Winter
