Now 24 years old with over 40,000 copies sold worldwide, Petruska Clarkson's classic text is the definitive introduction to Gestalt therapy. This fourth edition, updated by Simon Cavicchia, covers the latest in Gestalt theory, research and practice. It includes:
- An extended case study running through the book to help you understand the process of therapy and the techniques used in each of the phases.
- Learning features and case examples translating theory into practice.
- New 'reflection sections' showing you the most recent developments in the field.
- New material on the relational turn and research.
As a student of Gestalt therapy, this is the one book you need to buy; it offers a uniquely practical and accessible approach to an often complex topic.
