Idea and vision
GestaltStudion’s vision is to offer family treatment during cancer or other life threatening disease on
a gestalt psychotherapeutic ground.
Furthermore we want to increase the understanding for the whole family’s needs when a deadly disease strucks a family member. To achieve this we will offer information, lectures and education to universities, hospital staff, patient and relative associations, county council, and so forth. Furthermore we wish to offer specialised and competent treatment for trauma, crisis and complicated grief processes.
