The Gestalt Therapy Network is for the enrichment of Gestalt therapy and for those who love it and practice it. Remember that these discussion boards are both private and public — while you should be comfortable here, this is not your living room. We believe that decency, good taste and manners are a universal language and intend to conduct the Network with the professionalism and dignity Gestalt therapy deserves.

Board Decorum and Privacy

If you decide to participate in any activity of the Gestalt Therapy Network, it will be assumed you have read and agreed to the philosophy of discourse and good natured talk outlined on this page, as follows:

First - a plea on behalf of all forum members whose time is valuable: Do your best to keep your posts brief and to the point! 

Who runs this Site? Along with Admin, we currently have volunteer site moderators that have been entrusted to conduct the daily operations of the site.
