Gestalt work as adaptive inquiry (1) (© 1997 by

Gestalt Work--the therapeutic and growth activities that are the practice of Gestalt Therapy--is as varied and difficult to characterize, it would seem, as are the situations that give rise to it. I wish to begin an examination of this activity; our perspective may be called philosophical, but it is a philosophy whose entire raison d'être is its impact on lived experience. As such, it makes free use of the results of experience, including in an important way the methodology and insights of science; indeed, the concepts themselves of Gestalt Psychology lend considerable depth and power to this philosophical approach.
