Welcome to the Behavior OnLine Forum on Gestalt Therapy! This Forum will provide an opportunity to discuss a wide range of topics on the theory and practice of gestalt therapy. A particular emphasis of mine is the application of the gestalt approach within public mental health and the integration and dialogue between gestalt therapy and other therapeutic approaches. However my job here is to facilitate and stimulate discussion on gestalt therapy across as wide an area as you decide - and as gestaltists know, the Field can stretch a long, long way.
This forum is open to all who have an interest in gestalt therapy, from experienced international trainers and authors, to the tentatively inquiring minds who might ask "Ah... just what is gestalt therapy anyway?" I am always interested in reading gestalt therapy texts, to see just how demanding a question this is for gestalt therapists to answer!
I personally hope this forum can be of use in opening gestalt therapy to a wider audience of mental health and behavioural science practitioners and in the process invigorate and challenge the more experienced gestaltists who visit here.
