Robert W. Resnick
"obert W. Resnick, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist, has been a Gestalt and Couples Therapist for over 45 years and an international trainer for over 40 years. Trained (1965-1970) and personally certified (1969) by Drs. Fritz Perls and James Simkin, he is probably the youngest of the “old timers”. Proudly, Dr. Resnick was chosen by Fritz Perls (and invited by Nels In de Vid from Holland) to be the first Gestalt Therapist to introduce Gestalt Therapy to Europe in the summer of 1969 where he presented both a lecture and a training workshop. He has been presenting Gestalt and Couples training workshops in Europe continually since that time. His interview “Gestalt Therapy: Principles Prisms and Perspectives” defining his views of Gestalt Therapy at that time, appears in the summer 1995 issue of the British Gestalt Journal. “The Recursive Loop of Shame” appears in the Gestalt Review 1997. “Chicken Soup Is Poison” (Perls Festschrift) circa 1967. He is currently developing a series of contemporary Couples Therapy and Gestalt Therapy video demonstration and training tapes. His first clinical practicum (while moonlighting as a Columbia University graduate student) was driving a New York taxicab. Bob’s style is warm and engaging and he speaks with clarity and humor. The Resnicks are frequently happily married." Married to Rita Resnick.
