5 thoughts on “The Gestalt Approach and Eye Witness to Therapy

  1. Although it has some good stuff in it from Fritz, it pales in comparison to Verbatim or the Perls, Hefferline, and Goodman text. Still a good introduction for those unfamiliar with gestalt therapy.

  2. Fritz Perls définit ici la Gestalt-Thérapie, qu’il a mise au point sur ses observations par rapport au freudisme. Elle prend en compte les symptômes psycho-somatiques de manière différentes de la psychanalyse en les considérant comme des interruptions.
    Ce manuel définit également la frontière-contact entre intérieur et extérieur du patient. L’observation de la gestuelle est très important pour les gestaltistes.

    La notion d’empathie/frustration apporte quelque chose de neuf, pour moi.


  3. Much of what I had heard from the book was that the transcripts of sessions was where the good stuff was at, but I really didn’t get much out of them. It seemed like a bunch of psycho-babble that only had a rough estimate of sense to it. I did enjoy the exploration of where neurosis come from and the different types/how they manifest. I read this because I teach improv and there is an improv exercise that is loosely based off this method, but didn’t get a ton of usable stuff out of it.

  4. Wonderful Book! A very interesting perspective on the human race. I highly recommend reading this book to get another great perspective on the people around you and yourself!
