Intimately alien – uncanny atmospheres in field oriented psychotherapy

3-day workshop
June 28 – 30, 2024
Center for Integrative Gestalt Therapy (IGW)  Zagreb, Croatia

Our sense of self is grounded in how we feel at home in the world, with ourselves, and in our bodies. This feeling of being at home is usually taken for granted. But upon closer look, we can discover there is an alienness to ourselves. There is an unfamiliarity within the familiar. This is a disruptive experience. It can be encountered in subtle ways through the uncomfortable atmospheres we often find ourselves in. Also in devastating ways, as a result of (intergenerational) trauma, loss, and personal, social and environmental transitions. It is brought to us by our clients in the shape of existential and sometimes severe psychopathological suffering.

In this workshop we explore how to work with our attunement to atmospheres – especially those involving a disrupted ground. We will learn when, and how, to attend to the background of experience, instead of focusing too much on what’s in the foreground. We will see how the most uncomfortable experiences in psychotherapy can bring great fear, but also existential beauty and wonder.
