Gestalt Therapy: History, Theory, and Practice is a basic, introductory text, written by major Gestalt theorists, that will engage those new to Gestalt therapy. Editors Ansel Woldt and Sarah M. Toman introduce the historical underpinnings and fundamental concepts of Gestalt therapy and illustrate applications of those concepts to therapeutic practice. This book is a unique contribution to the field in that it is the first Gestalt textbook specifically designed for the academic and training institute settings. Gestalt Therapy takes both a conceptual and a practical approach to examining classic and cutting-edge constructs. In each chapter, understanding of concepts proceeds from content to case applications to experiential exercises.

This book consists of two parts: covering background, theory, and methodology in Part I and examining the applications of Gestalt therapy in Part II. The chapters are written by theorists and practitioners who are experts in various aspects of Gestalt therapy. It features 'Dialogue Boxes' running alongside the content, mirroring a key Gestalt concept of valuing multiple perspectives and voices. It offers guidance on training resources, Gestalt Internet resources, and Gestalt organizations. Gestalt Therapy is designed for graduate students studying mental health, as well as for trainees at the many Gestalt training institutes around the world.
