Dr. Benjamin Keyes, Professor, Chair of the M.A. Counseling programs, and founder of the Trauma Study Center at Regent University and Dr. George Jefferson, Associate Professor for the M.A. Counseling programs at Regent University for twenty-six years, will be presenting a workshop on Gestalt Therapy and Awareness.

Gestalt therapy is an existential and experiential psychotherapy that focuses on the individual's experience in the present moment, the therapist-client relationship, the environmental and social contexts in which these things take place, and the self-regulating adjustments people make as a result of the overall situation. It emphasizes personal responsibility.
