Question creative adjustment

When we talk of creative adjustment (Perls), is this adjustment always positive or could one adjust creatively in a negative way, in the way one would know of?

Teresa-
I was under the impression that creative adjustment is the goal of the organism, as it makes contact with the environment, and would be healthy behavior. What were your thoughts?

Default Re: creative adjustment

I hope I am not butting in, but I think that as described, creative adjustment is meant more as a positive phenomenon, but could nevertheless in some circumstances be negative.

I wonder sometimes if the formation of a (psychological) addiction, for example, isn't a sort of creative adjustment gone wrong.
