Gestalt therapy is often misrepresented and misunderstood, so I was delighted to read this clear and well-written book. This is an all-inclusive, whistle-stop tour of how to practice contemporary Gestalt. The book guides the reader step by step through the practice, starting with assessment and moving on to creating working alliance, managing risk, undertaking research and many other topics. It is written in simple language, with exercises to engage the reader, alongside examples and case studies. I recommend this as a valuable resource for anyone who wants to learn more about contemporary Gestalt theory and practice.
Excellent book, easy to understand and very informative
This is a good practical book for all trainee counsellors. Easy to read, it links theory to practice in a concise and clear way. It gives a comprehensive overview of the Gestalt therapeutic approach from the first steps all the way to end of therapy.
Very good book for Level 4 Diploma course.
A good overview for students who wish to know more about Gestalt and a corner stone for reference.
