Default Re: Gestalt Therapy Texbook

Dear Phil,

Gestalt forum. Yes, I got that. What bothers me as I repeat myself is your word usage. "Leading" thinkers, writers and Gestalt Trainers in the field. My problem is with the words you use. In any discipline we will have these great so-called "leaders." But isn't that just in their own minds? Are these people so great? Also is Gestalt therapy the very best theory in the field? What makes it better then Psychodynamic? Or Cognitive behavioral? Or Family Systems? Or any other theory? Each theory is basically the same with the major concepts changed to different words. I could argue the same points here against other disciplines and the "professionals" in other forums would argue they are the BEST! With so many therapists around why is the world still basically sad and mad?

Anna
