  • Title: Constitution & Bylaws | AAGT
    Descriptive info: AAGT-AIC Preamble.. These.. By-Laws.. provide rules, as specified by and in compliance with the.. Articles of Incorporation.. , for the governance of the.. Association for the Advancement of Gestalt Therapy An International Community.. (also herein referred to as the.. Association.. , and by its initials,.. AAGT-AIC.. and.. ), and for the functioning of the Association s.. Board of Directors.. Board.. ) which shall develop and set, consistent with the mode of functioning of this organization, all Association policy, and for the Association s.. Executive Council.. Council.. , or as the.. Officers of the Association.. EC.. ) which shall provide leadership for the Association and carry out the decisions of the Board to the best of its ability.. The Association is organized and certified as a non-stock, non-profit corporation entitled to engage in any lawful act or activity exclusively for educational, scientific, and charitable purposes except that no part of the activities of the Association shall consist of the carrying on of propaganda, or otherwise attempting to intervene in any of these.. Articles.. , nor otherwise engaging in activities not permitted to be carried on by an organization exempt from Federal Income Tax under Section 501(c)(3), or by an organization, contributions to which are deductible under Section 170(c)(2), of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 (or the corresponding provision of any future United States Internal Revenue Law).. ARTICLE I: Name and Purpose.. Section 1.. Name:.. The name of this professional organization is the Association for the Advancement of Gestalt Therapy An International Community, also referred to by its initials, AAGT-AIC, or its original initials AAGT, and also, herein, as the Association.. Section 2.. Purpose:.. The purpose of the Association shall be to support the professional and personal associating and advancing of persons interested in participating in a forum committed to the preservation and advancement of the philosophy, theory, practice, and research of Gestalt therapy and its various applications.. In furtherance of this purpose, AAGT shall encourage the development and application of principles and practices in the organization consistent with the following tenets:.. That an organization can be created, rather than imposed, and that it will grow out of our contacting; and.. That a structure will emerge in response to our shared needs, interests and concerns; and.. That by believing in the unity of theory and practice, an organization which so creates itself, is itself an experiment, an on-going organic process of Gestalt formation and destruction, in which old forms are destroyed and new figures emerge through contact that is bright and lively, energetic, graceful and fluid; and.. That such an organization provides the ground for the enrichment, articulation and support of the constantly emerging figure that is Gestalt Therapy!.. ARTICLE II: Registration, Offices and Agents.. Association Registration.. The Association is registered as a legal entity with The.. Secretary of State.. in the.. State of Delaware.. and is filed accordingly with The..

Working Office.. of the Association is that office where Association archives and records are maintained which shall be located at the home office of the Founding Secretary,.. 511 Beryl Drive, Kent, Ohio 44240.. , until such time that other suitable location(s) may be designated by the Board of Directors.. ARTICLE III.. Constituency, Membership and Privileges.. Constituency.. The Association is a voluntary organization of individuals expressing their interest(s) in.. Gestalt Therapy.. Participation shall be open to persons of all nations in the world, who shall be treated with respect and without discrimination on the basis of race, gender, national or ethnic origin, religion, sexual orientation, age, mental or physical disability.. The Association shall undertake and encourage activities and may also develop programs which have as their goal the amelioration of conditions that may restrict members from full participation in the Association.. There are two classifications of membership in AAGT Individual and Organizational.. Members of the Association shall be persons interested in the history, development, preservation, and/or advancement of the Gestalt approach who pay an annual membership fee (the amount of which shall be designated by the Board of Directors and paid to the Treasurer by each member annually) and who otherwise meet the standards prescribed by these.. The designation Member, as used in these.. , shall be deemed the preferred classification of all persons and organizations belonging to the Association.. Within the Individual Membership category, AAGT has determined to provide a reduction in annual dues for certain groups such as couples, students, new members and retired members.. Membership may be terminated by the Membership Committee or by the Executive Council for non-payment of dues and for other criteria to be determined by the Board of Directors and approved by the membership.. Membership Privileges.. Members shall have the right and be encouraged to express their individual opinions and convictions, to secure fair consideration, to vote at Annual Meetings, to hold office (providing prerequisites are met), and to have their voices be heard in this Association.. Membership in the Association is not credentialing nor is it intended to imply or to convey that members have met any minimum standards of training, any criteria for certification, any level of knowledge, nor the mastery of any skill as a Gestalt therapist.. ARTICLE IV: Meetings, Conferences and Conveyances.. Annual Meeting.. There shall be an.. for members of the Association, presided over by the President, for the purpose of including members in the activities of the Association.. This shall include but not be limited to the election and appointment of Officers and Board of Directors and for the transaction of such other business as may come before the membership.. The time and place of Annual Meetings shall be decided by the Board of Directors.. Members shall be notified by the President or his/her designee as to the time, place and tentative agenda of Annual Meetings.. Notice shall be given in the.. AAGT Newsletter.. and the AAGT Members Listserv.. The announcement of Annual Meetings and the known agenda shall be distributed to the membership forty-five (45) days prior to the meeting.. Members shall be invited to submit additional agenda items and the forty-five (45) day notice does not restrict the right of any member to add a new issue to the agenda on any meeting of the membership.. Other Meetings.. The Board of Directors may call special meetings or hold special conferences at locations, for the furtherance of the purposes of the Association and shall give notice of said meetings to the members in the.. Meetings as Form, Forum and Process.. The form and forums of all meetings shall be based on Gestalt Therapy principles of organismic self-regulation, good figure/ground formation, quality contact and respect for the functional resistance necessary for structure that supports sufficient flexibility to provide nourishing ground for personal and professional integrity, meaningful interpersonal interaction, inclusionary decision-making, personalized networking, and professional development among the members of the Association.. In accordance with the Gestalt principles which precipitated and guided the inception and development of this Association, the form and forum for the decision-making process of the Association shall be concerned with the human and decisional processes as well as with the outcome and products of those decisions.. Community Meetings were developed for the presentation and discussion of issues pertinent to the Association.. The Association s founders placed a high priority on major decisions being made in an open forum where face-to-face contact is possible and where consensus is sought, rather than voting as accorded by Robert s Rules of Order.. Consensus encourages the expression of feelings and dissenting opinion, whereby both majority and minority views are aired openly on the decisional issue before the body.. If time permits, each member shall have a voice if s/he so wishes to express it, providing it pertains directly to the task/issue at hand.. After a consensus has been reached there shall be an attempt to include the minority/dissenting part into the whole.. In situations or cases wherein consensus cannot be reached or time constraints do not permit the full expression and articulation of the opinions and feelings of all present, the act of a majority of members present in the meeting shall be the treated as the act of the Association unless otherwise precluded by law or these.. Because Gestalt therapists encourage, respect and support alternative voices, value non-confluent relationships by owning and expressing differences, engage with resistances as “the energy, not the enemy,” identify and work with polarities in the field, and honor dialogical processes as the heart and soul of Gestalt methodology, the “Covenant of Community” was developed and approved at AAGT’s 2002 Gestalt Conference, with a recent addition of item “I” at the 2013 Annual General Meeting following a months-long AAGT members’ Internet dialogue on social equality and justice.. This was done to provide supplemental guidance for and a commitment to creating and sustaining dialogue in our Gestalt community.. “Covenant of Community”.. invites AAGT members to subscribe to the following dialogical processes, particularly when encountering dramatic differences:.. A.. We will undertake and encourage one another to engage in ongoing dialogue with one another and to remain open and in contact when choosing to withdraw temporarily from dialogue.. B.. We will undertake to recognize, acknowledge and own our projections, to check out our assumptions, and to encourage one another to do so.. C.. We will undertake to maintain community through patience and understanding.. D.. We will undertake to support the needs of the members of our community.. E.. We will undertake to stay with even difficult dialogue, acknowledging the need for space and refreshment when hungry, tired and frustrated, but not abandoning one another.. F.. We will undertake to get and remain interested in the impact our behavior, words and intentions have on one another.. G.. We will undertake to put our desire for and interest in power (in whatever form) out on the table along with being honest and direct in other arenas.. H.. We will undertake to attend carefully to language or other communication that objectifies the other.. I.. Moreover, we will undertake in whatever way emerges through our experience with the larger social field to support the purpose and ethical values of our community, which include the human worth and dignity of every person.. In this way we declare our commitment to social equality and justice among persons within our community and in the wider, external community.. Notice: Forty-five days notice is to be given to the membership via e-mail for any item to appear on the agenda of any meeting open to the membership and at which a vote of the membership is required.. This does not restrict the right of any member to add a new issue to the agenda at any meeting of the membership.. Conveyances and Publications..

  • Title: AAGT
    Descriptive info: Origins and Development of Gestalt Therapy.. The theory of Gestalt therapy has three major sources.. First is psychoanalysis, which contributed some of its major principles concerned with the inner life.. Humanistic, holistic, phenomenological and existential writings, which center on personal experience and everyday life, constitute a second source.. Gestalt psychology, the third source, gave to Gestalt therapy much more than its name.. Though Gestalt therapy is not directly an application or extension of it, Gestalt psychology s thoroughgoing concentration on interaction and process, many of its important experimental observations and conclusions, and its insistence that a psychology about humans include human experience have inspired and informed Gestalt therapy.. Gestalt therapy emerged from the clinical work of two German psychotherapists, Frederick Salomon Perls, M.. D.. , and Lore Perls, Ph.. S.. Perls, known to many of his students as Fritz, was trained as a psychiatrist.. He worked with Kurt Goldstein, a principal figure of the holistic school of psychology, in his inquiries into the effects of brain injuries on veterans of the first World War.. Later, in the 1920s, he trained in psychoanalysis with Karen Homey and Wilhelm Reich..
