Popis The proposed workshop will invite participants into a creative and spontaneous experiment built on techniques from improv theatre. We will aim at experiencing the potential of improv theatre both for working with our clients and developing our own therapeutic competencies. The workshop's content and theory are inspired 1) by the presenters' article for Gestalt Review journal* where they have proposed a theoretical bridge for using improv theatre in gestalt therapy. The study proposes that the roots and paradigms of improv theatre and gestalt therapy are epistemologically close and explore how concepts specific to gestalt therapy – understanding of self as a process in the phenomenological intersubjective field, an aesthetic approach to mental health, and the notion of creative adjustment – could contribute to the understanding and empowering of the therapeutic processes found in improv theatre. The workshop will also refer to 2) summer school for gestalt therapists in the Czech republic organized under the roof of EAGT-accredited institute IVGT Prague in summer 2023. The summer school is intended to explore possibilities of the development of gestalt therapist competencies via means of improv theatre.
