Fun activities for 3 years old by implementing Gestalt Therapy

Understand a selection of concepts from Gestalt Theory that work well within the domain of child and adolescent counselling.

Workshop Overview

Gestalt Theory emphasises that the whole of anything is greater than the sum of its parts. The word Gestalt means “whole, pattern or form” i.e. the way something is “put together.” It views a person as a totality of mind, body, emotions and spirit.

Gestalt psychology is a theory of perception that emphasises present time and the processing of entire patterns and configurations, and not merely individual components when trying to make sense of the world around us. It views individuals as unique and experiencing reality in a way of their own.

The Integrating Gestalt Therapy When Working with Children CPD workshop gives insight into the complex concepts behind Gestalt Theory that work well within the domain of child and adolescent counselling.

The workshop simplifies the complex concepts behind Gestalt Therapy and will help you build practical tools to provide emotional support to children and adolescents.


This CPD workshop has been designed for psychologists and registered counsellors. It also has value for educators, social workers and other mental health practitioners working with children. Once you have completed the course, you will receive a digital certificate of completion.

The certificate serves as evidence of your new skills and knowledge and can be used to demonstrate your commitment to professional development. Attend a live online session, or watch the recording, and complete an online reading and assessment.

HPCSA registered professionals will receive 3 CPD points [3 CEU Continuing Education Units points] upon successful completion of the workshop.
