Athens, August 17th. 2020


The European Association for Gestalt Therapy (EAGT) and its Human Rights and Social Responsibility Committee closely follows the dramatic developments in Belarus. We are deeply shocked at the violation of human rights, democratic principles and the violence and torture by the Belarus ‘government against its own inhabitants.

EAGT has been founded to support each other and to connect Gestalt colleagues around the world.
What is needed now is a big capacity for creative adjustments to the situation that neither of us has ever experienced before. Our societies, personal relations to friends and families as well as the heart of our modality – personal contact- to our clients seem to be disrupted.
The situation in different European countries and beyond is quite different, but still all of us are affected and have to adjust to new forms of contact by being distant and at the same time connected.

   Letters to all members Read On     .....

With warm wishes until we can be in the presence of each other again,

The EC of EAGT
