Very very impactful read for me. This is really the first time as a counseling student that I have been able to imagine a more specific mode of operation and practice for myself. I will definitely be re-reading this and using it as a resource for years to come.

Very poetic in his presentation of the creative therapeutic process. He brings the relational aspect of Gestalt back to the forefront and stresses the need for creativity in balancing a peer-peer and authority-client relationship.

It's one of those books that I look forward to reading a second time and expect to see a completely different book the second time since it is layered with nuance.

Classic Gestalt text. A must read if you are wanting to learn more about Gestalt theory. The chapter on The Cycle of Experience is the best chapter I've read about the cycle anywhere. The chapter on experiment and the chapter on polarities & conflict stand out too ...more

A great introduction into the creative dynamics of gestalt therapy, especially with how in-session experiments are paramount for gestalt work.
