I was looking for a theoretical framework within Gestalt Therapy for the Linklater Voice Method I was studying when I read about Ruella Frank.
I read her books and attended one of her workshops. I could understand her words but not the deep meaning of what she was teaching. That woke up my interest.
How our embodied experiences with another person are the first and most fundamental foundations in our lives. As I understand it, this is one of the main themes in her theoretical and experiential approach to psychotherapy.
Training with her has also opened “the other” Gestalt Therapy for me. The theoretical, contemporary, as I was not initially trained in it.
Sharing some of Ruella Frank’s texts in the Study Group about Contemporary Gestalt Therapy in Seville is one of the things that make me happier about this project.
