An interview introducing the approach PSP (Process-Stage-Praxis)

An interview with Elena Petrova (Integrative Gestalt training Institute – St Petersburg, Russia)

introducing my approach “PSP – Process Stage Praxis”:
an approach for embodied interaction, that I devised gradually since 2006.  

Translation in Russian: Sergey Kondurof


*** PSP is an adjunctive skill (a complementary tool) for any kind of work that has to do with process and awareness: psychotherapy, counseling, social interventions, education, art, Organisations / work-field.

*** PSP is not some kind of art-therapy, and not an autonomous psychotherapeutic modality.

*** PSP does not substitute the already acquired tools/skills of anyone working in the above mentioned fields or her/his pre-existing professional training.
