Overview

The Gestalt Center for Organization & Systems Development Training Program was the first training program in the world to integrate Gestalt theory, systems theory, and organization development theories into a coherent curriculum in the field of organizational change consulting. Our perspective provides individuals with the theory, concepts, methodology, skills, and techniques for effectively intervening at the individual, two-person, group, and organizational and larger levels of systems. It offers a unique Gestalt OSD framework for designing interventions, managing change, and developing professionals in the systems within which we live and work. Current training programs conducted by the Center reflect an over 35-year evolution of concept application, teaching strategies, hands-on skill enhancement, and opportunities for both personal and professional growth. Our aspiration is that through increased awareness, knowledge, and skill, individuals can walk into a room anywhere in the world, containing any number of people, and make a difference with their presence.

Who Should Attend

The program is designed for individuals with a master’s or doctoral degree who have demonstrated competence in their field, and who have a commitment to developing effective organizations, work teams, communities, and governing bodies, and/or to large-scale organizational transformation. The program will enhance individuals’ ability to influence people and systems through increased competence and effectiveness in designing, implementing, and following through on interventions to achieve desired outcomes.

Curriculum and Methodology

Teaching methods are varied and include lectures, readings, demonstrations, fieldwork assignments, and small group practice. Feedback on a consistent basis is a critical part of the hands-on and experimental nature of these programs. Faculty ratio averages 1 faculty member for every 4 to 6 participants. Our objectives include:

  • Address the learning needs of individuals and organizations
  • Learn skills to lead, manage, and consult to change efforts
  • Influence people and processes
  • Increase skill and capability to achieve desired outcomes
Our program focuses on specific skills, and is designed to enhance our participants’ awareness of and capability in meeting these skills:
  • Discriminate among observations, interpretations, and judgments
  • Develop greater awareness of one’s own internal and external experience
  • Work with and recognize resistance in the client and systems with a respectful attitude
  • Observe and attend to processes at the intrapersonal, interpersonal, group, and organizational levels
  • Identify conflicts and choices related to interventions required at each level of system

Admissions Process

Admittance to the OSD Training Program requires attending an Introductory Gestalt Workshop or an Interpersonal Interaction workshop before or during the program, a written application, and a personal interview either in person or by telephone. There is a nonrefundable application fee of $500. Due to the nature of the program’s design and operation, tuition will not be refunded for early withdrawal. A penalty fee may be assessed for a participant’s withdrawal following his or her acknowledgement of acceptance into the program. Upon completion of the program and full payment of fees, participants will receive a Gestalt Approach to Organization & Systems Development Program Certificate.
