In 2001, I became involved in an advanced summer training programme with an international group of Gestaltists, where we looked at Gestalt theory and its practical application from our different theoretical and cultural perspectives. I gave a lecture in the first programme on self-formation as an ongoing process. In the second programme in 2002, I gave this lecture at the Gestalt Therapy International Network summer programme in Mexico, which was to look more at how self stabilises.
