Ruella Frank’s Webinar Series: The Body is a Moving Dynamic
12-09-2022, 19-09-2022, 26-09-2022 ZOOM


You are invited to a series of  3 webinars in which Ruella Frank presents, simply and in-depth, a new paradigm in the making of experience through radical investigation into the processes of contacting—meeting and being met, reaching and being reached. Participants will be introduced to a precise phenomenological language for those subverbal interactions that form the basis of lived experience. This aesthetic approach will open a moving-feeling-knowing of oneself in relation to the other. Attention will be given to the movement dynamics of the infant-parent and patient-therapist dyads from which meaning is made. Every webinar is a blend between theoretical and experiential learning.



  1. What does it mean to work with the body in psychotherapy?

Expressions of psychic unfolding: Gesture, posture, gait and breathing.

 This first webinar explores how meaning is made from the most subtle of interactive dialogues, whether lively or dulled.  These ongoing interactions are the body’s way of living the situation. Participants will sharpen their eyes and learn how to see what is obvious, but most often over-looked within therapy.

  1. Evaluating the situation: A Kinesthetic Experience

How we know what we know before we know we know.

As children, we move through the world with wonder and curiosity at what we see, touch and how we feel.  In time, and to protect ourselves from a variety of psychological injuries, we learn to inhibit our spontaneous, creative experience. This second webinar presents a practical understanding of how we lose our aliveness, from infancy through adulthood, and how to reclaim it in the moment-to-moment of therapy for both patient and therapist.

  1. Kinesthetic Resonance: The Root of Sociability

The trans-subjective experience from which subjectivity takes form

 Preceding the division of subject and object, kinesthetic resonance is the intersubjective matrix from which subjectivity emerges.  Examples of infant-parent relationships illustrate how resonance emerges in fluidity, or when it is stifled, and how theses developmental tracings can be retained as they emerge to influence the immediate present, and anticipate what is next to come.  Participants learn how to diagnose the relational field through the experience of kinesthetic resonance.


These webinars are essential for beginning or advanced psychotherapists, teachers of psychotherapy, psychiatrists, and psychologists who wish to integrate dynamics of the body into their work. Those educators, physical therapists, medical practitioners, etc., working with babies, young children and parents, will learn how nonverbal relational patterns organize in health and dysfunction. In addition, health professionals who wish to enhance their practice more fully by understanding the psycho-physical nature of development are more than welcome.



Webinars will take place on ZOOM platform (6 hours – 2 hours each meeting):

  • September 12, 2022: 6pm-8pm (UTC+2), 12-2pm (New York, UTC-4)

Pierwsze tak świadome doświadczenie w moim życiu. Razem z innymi kobietami odkryłam swoje miejsce, zobaczyłam własny potencjał.


Bezcenne doświadczenie osobiste, czas skupiony na uważnym eksplorowaniu siebie i innych, by lepiej być ze sobą i innymi w życiu codziennym.


Staż Gestalt umożliwił mi swój rozwój osobisty; grupa oraz prowadzący zajęcia wspierali mnie w poznawaniu siebie i podejmowaniu decyzji w zgodzie ze sobą.


Staż był początkiem mojej zawodowej ścieżki, utwierdziłam się w przekonaniu, że chcę dalej rozwijać swoje umiejętności jako psychoterapeutka w tym nurcie.


Dla mnie warsztat niezwykle cenny, w atmosferze szacunku i akceptacji, daje poczucie i możliwość bezpiecznej pracy nad sobą.
