FOR PSYCHOTHERAPY AND TRAINING

THE GESTALT CENTER

THE GESTALT CENTER FOR PSYCHOTHERAPY AND TRAINING was founded in 1967 by Dr. Marilyn B. Rosanes-Berrett to carry on and expand the teachings of her friend and mentor, Dr. Frederick (Fritz) Perls, the founder of Gestalt Therapy.


Ten years later the Center became the first NY State chartered non-profit institution to offer therapeutic services and training totally within a Gestalt framework, and with authority to grant Certificates of Completion to licensed professionals. 


Over the years, the Gestalt theory and therapy taught at the Center has evolved into a widely effective and applicable model for use in agencies and private practice.
