Purpose: To make a protocol for the accreditation of Training Institutes. The European Training standards document for Gestalt Therapy contains some previous omissions so that Institutes know what is expected of them in order to get their accreditation. These concrete formulations can be seen as boundaries and will help us in our contact making processes. The standards are in line with the existing rules of the European Association of Psychotherapy. So when Institutes are certified, their graduates will also be eligible for the European Certificate for Psychotherapy.
