    1 thought on “Gestalt Therapy Verbatim

    1. Mr. Frederick 'Fritz' Perls. This book Gestalt Therapy Verbatim showed some Hardcore Gestalt Sessions. The way Fritz does his Skill Frustration is really amazing. For him, the only way to grow up is through frustration. But take note of the word Skillful. Just like a toothpaste, what comes out of you when you're squeezed is who you are. When one is inflicted with frustration, he is pushed the edge in where he thought is hell. Push to the place where he thought he can't survive. And he is forced [...]

    2. Although I'd developed a great deal of interest and some expertise in continental depth psychologies during my year out of school, the course offerings and faculty at Grinnell College offered little. What was available, thanks to the college's practice of hiring visiting professors, were two teachers with backgrounds in what was then been called "humanistic" psychotherapy. Studying with them introducted me to Anti-Psychiatric, Rogerian, Existential, Phenomenological, Analytical, Logos and Gestal [...]

    3. “Eu faço as minhas coisas e você faz as suas. Eu não estou neste mundo para satisfazer as suas expectativas.E você não está neste mundo para satisfazer as minhas. Você é você, e eu sou eu.E, se por acaso, nós nos encontrarmos, será óptimo. Se não, nada se pode fazer.”

    4. Amazing. A little bit of the introduction and everything of the intensive except for the consuming girl was kind of weird, but everything else is fantastic.

    5. For practitioners, this is a great read; I found something worth underlining on almost every page. GTV is a transcription of lectures Perls gave while at Esalen in 1968, between gestalt process and his memoir, Out of the Garbage Pail and it is obvious that his confidence and skill are at their peak. The transcripts mainly cover "work" he does with different group members, with most of the work being dream work, as well as some Q&A, not dissimilar to the style of several of Trungpa's books. P [...]

    6. A remarkable book, both fascinating and illuminating. The first section where Perls explains his theories is powerful stuff and pushes to the forefront his no-nonsense methodology. He explains that asking "why" is a waste of time and how we must concentrate on the "now" and "how". But it doesn't reek of new age nonsense as I imagine others might. He straight up tells people they are "mindf***ing" themselves and he makes clear that there is no point in dressing up that message in anything flowery [...]

    7. This book holds a special place in my library. Fritz Perls, the founder of Gestalt Therapy, was nothing short of a no-bullshit maverick visionary, and whose work was as important as Freud's or Maslow's, and many believe to be far more effective. But this is not dry psychoanalytical reading. These are transcripts from Perls' sessions with patients from his work at Esalen Institute in front of other practicing psychotherapists, with some introductory notes from Perls summarizing Gestalt Therapy. B [...]

    8. This one is less on theory and more on practice sessions. Good examples given on gestalt approach toward working with dreams. I can understand now the distinction between gestalt and freudian methods of dreams processing with gestalt being more efficient one. Also in this book first appeared the "the top dog /the under dog" concept as one of the most frequent split in the human psyche, though for me it remained unclear as to how this concept correlate with introjection or retroflexion or where i [...]

    9. Standard "I read this, but damned if I can remember exactly when or why or enough about it to make detail comments" disclaimer: My rating is based solely on my memory of how much or little I enjoyed the book at that time. In some cases, "at that time" might mean before most users were born. Then again, it could mean a couple years ago and that I have a lousy memory. Your mileage may vary. Heck, given how all our tastes change over the years and the fickle nature of memory, my own mileage might [...]

    10. This is a classic book on Gestalt Therapy. I especially appreciated the introduction by Michael Vincent Miller which provides a good context for the transcripts (and a justified criticism of some of the peculiar shortcomings of this particular wave of Gestalt that is exhibited in the book). Not only how Perls works is interesting, but also his theoretical explanations. Read the book, get the vibe, put it to practice.

    11. This is one of those books that radically changed my perspective. It was the first book I read within gestalt, and it shows the very practical and dynamic form of gestalt therapy. Also, Fritz is great fun to read. His personally really comes through and reading it gives the impression that he is sitting next to you, or across from you in the chair, talking right to you.

    12. While I practiced facets of Gestalt therapy across my years I lost an interest in it as a common place fashion. Too many of the people I worked with needed and did best with short-term therapy models which addressed their immediate needs.

    13. I read this years ago as part of my hypnotherapy training course. Re-reading for my dissertation in psychology--maybe. Will get back to you on my perspective these days about what ol' Fritz had to say.

    14. This book was the basis for the framework of my early counseling style. I found Gestalt theory and practice to complement my natural approach in sessions, Perls was a mentor for me.

    15. An interesting and rare elaboration of gestalt therapy on the part of Fritz, who did not do much elaborating in the latter part of his life.

    16. Very interesting book. It really portrays Perls' worldview and therapeutic ideas. What a character !
