Wollants is a Belgian Gestalt therapist, supervisor and trainer. This book is a culmination of his many years of learning and experience and is a must-read for any student of Gestalt theory and practice, whether in the fields of psychotherapy or organisational work.
In this book Wollants clarifies an essential aspect of Gestalt theory which is the indivisibility of the person in his or her environment and in doing so, sheds light on a much confused term of ‘field’ and adopting the term of ‘situation’ instead.
This book was essential for part of the level 3 counselling course, clearly written and supportive
Wollants emphasises a specific aspect of gestalt psychotherapy theory that I believe is essential to a full appreciation: namely the emergence of figures from ground/context.
Traditionally there was a strong tendency for therapy, coaching, consulting work to be 'figure bound'; paying attention to the issue itself with insufficient attention to the environment.
