3 Continuing Education Credits for APA, NASW-MA, and MMCEP/MaMHCA  

Join us and learn about the Cape Cod Model©, a unique, optimistic and highly impactful intervention model for working with individuals, couples and families. Developed at the Gestalt International Study Center, Wellfleet, Cape Cod, it has been taught and implemented globally (in the U.S., Canada, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa) for more than three decades. The Cape Cod Model goes beyond positive psychology and strengths-based practices to engage the competence of the client or client system, while utilizing the power of awareness as a foundation for change. In this short workshop, you will learn and practice the basics of this model and experience how it can enhance your therapeutic impact. Whether you have experience with contemporary Gestalt practice or not, this program will offer a new approach and insights that will boost your effectiveness and renew enthusiasm for your practice. APA, NASW-MA, and MMCEP/MaMHCA CEUs will be available for this workshop which will be led by GISC faculty, Sharona Halpern, LMHC, and Stuart Simon, LICSW.
