Gestalt therapy offers a present-focused, relational approach, central to which is the fundamental belief that the client knows the best way of adjusting to their situation. This new edition of Gestalt Therapy: 100 Key Points and Techniques provides a concise, accessible guide to this flexible and far-reaching approach. Substantially updated throughout, topics discussed include:

- The theoretical assumptions underpinning gestalt therapy.

- Gestalt assessment and process diagnosis.

- Field theory, phenomenology and dialogue.

- Ethics and values.

- Evaluation and research.

As such this book will be essential reading for gestalt trainees, as well as all counsellors and psychotherapists wanting to learn more about the gestalt approach.

Reviews and Endorsements

'Mann's highly accessible second edition brings gestalt therapy alive with his vignettes, and embodies it with the offer of experiments for the reader to play with. It serves as a wonderful reference text, one you can dip into as your fancy strikes you. Once you do that, you will want to go back for more!'- Lynne Jacobs, PhD, Co-Founder Pacific Gestalt Institute, Los Angeles, USA.

'Whether discovering gestalt therapy for the first time or wanting to update previous learning, readers will find this book an indispensable companion: wide-ranging, lively, authoritative, and easy to follow. Theory and practice interweave throughout. Experiential intermissions help focus attention. The author's choice of 100 subjects is well-judged and original. An experienced and respected gestalt practitioner, Mann demonstrates here his deep understanding of the gestalt approach, its history, craft, and contemporary vision. The book offers stimulus, enjoyment, and support for holistic learning.' - Malcolm Parlett, PhD, Former editor of the British Gestalt Journal, international trainer.

'Mann has excelled in producing a second edition of this key gestalt text that both consolidates and extends the first edition. The experiential exercises encourage you to "try on" concepts in a way that brings theory vividly alive. Whether you identify as a gestalt clinician, coach, or organisational consultant, as a novice or experienced practitioner, this book is outstanding in identifying and describing the heart of the approach.' - Sally Denham-Vaughan, DPsych, Chair EAGT GPO committee, Co-Founder Relational Change, UK.
