Ruella Frank, Ph.D., an internationally renowned trainer and author, has been exploring early infant movements and their relationship to the adult since the mid-1970s. Ruella is founder and director of the Center for Somatic Studies, and faculty at both the New York Institute for Gestalt Therapy and Gestalt Associates for Psychotherapy. Since the 1990s, she has synthesised the present-centred, non-linear and phenomenological development theory for gestalt therapy based on six fundamental movements, co-created within the infant/parent dyad

Ruella’s workshops are run within a large group format, with live demonstrations, skills practice and theoretical input rather than group process.

Developmental somatic psychotherapy: an introduction

This workshop will benefit counsellors, psychotherapists and experienced trainees who want to enhance their understanding of early relational movement processes in therapy. Attending to relational movement patterns is particularly powerful when guided by contemporary developmental thinking.
