Relational Organisational Gestalt (ROG) Programme
A Certificate/Diploma programme leading to a European Accreditation as GPO (Gestalt Practitioner in Organisations).
What is ROG?
Relational Organisational Gestalt (ROG) is a holistic and practical approach to facilitating organisational and individual change. It is informed by Gestalt psychotherapy, and the latest thinking in systems theory and complexity, as well as by other complementary theoretical concepts. The programme is structured around our SOS (SELF, OTHER, SITUATION) framework which holds at its centre the importance of developing and nurturing ethical presence. For more information on the ROG programme, please download our Learning Outcomes flyer and watch our ROG videos on the Resources Page.
Who is it for?
The ROG programme of workshops we offer provides skill enhancing training for coaches, consultants, leaders/managers, OD or HR professionals, facilitators and change agents working in any field. This training is also ideal for therapists and counsellors aiming to move into coaching or organisational work.
The Certificate/Diploma programme comprises six 2 day workshops, which focus on developing awareness and skills in three interrelated areas: self, other, and situation. Together, they offer powerful frameworks to understand, lead and facilitate change in challenging times. The six modules are:
Completion of all six modules can lead to a certificate/diploma being awarded. Each module does stand alone and depending on participants can be taken independently. However, it is recommended that participants attend the ROG Foundation workshop before any of the others. This provides an introduction to the theory and practice of Relational Gestalt as applied to organisations, and is an excellent taster for those considering the full course.
This advanced PAG training is a consolidation of learning gained in phase one of the training through peer support and a focus on more in-depth application in organisations. This phase will support people to prepare their portfolio/dossier of evidence and reflection as required for submission when applying for the award of GPO; (Gestalt Practitioner in Organisations - awarded by European Association for Gestalt Therapy - EAGT).
Phase two comprises 7 days with an optional GPO accreditation day for those wishing to proceed for this award.

The "ROG Out In The Wild" Series
We are delighted to bring you nine illustrations of how the ROG approach has made a difference to individuals and organisations. These articles, vlogs and personal reflections come from a diverse mix of practitioners, some of whom are experienced leaders but new to ROG, while some are seasoned OD professionals. What the contributions all point to however, is the potency and importance of a relational and emergent approach in organisational work.
