Back cover copy

Until this book, there was no one concise statement of the fundamentals of gestalt therapy. The authors, who are co-directors of the Gestalt Training Center of San Diego, not only explain these principles, but also develop new concepts, reformulate older ones and show, through case studies, how all of these elements come together in the therapeutic meeting.
