Overview

Creativity, traditionally seen as a special gift of remarkable and exceptional personalities, is considered in Gestalt therapy to be a quality of spontaneous adaptation in interpersonal processes, as well as an important ingredient of healthy social living. This revolutionary concept of creativity is approached in the book from three aspects: the theoretical foundations, the healing relationship, and applications to certain social issues, such as the couple's relationship, treating psychosis and understanding children's suffering.
The authors are among the most relevant contemporary Gestalt psychotherapists and researchers. Their contributions, solid representations of American and European reflections on the theme, bridge a divide between continents and reflect the productive discourse among schools of Gestalt therapy today. Edited by two experienced Gestalt psychotherapy trainers, this book is not only addressed to professionals, but also to all those who make art and curiosity about human nature an important aspect of their lives.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"... Es gab bereits vor diesem Buch viele Beiträge von verschiedenen GestalttherapeutInnen zum Thema Kreativität (siehe dazu auch eine Übersicht von N. Amendt-Lyon: Kunst und Kreativität in der Gestalttherapie in: Handbuch der Gestalttherapie), allerdings kein Forum, wo der Prozess der Theoriebildung und Konzeptualisierung Raum erhält, um Anstoß zu Reflexion des bisherigen Status und einer weiterführenden Diskussion zu sein ... Die praxisnahmen Beiträge veranschaulichen therapeutische Momente in Bezug zum theoretischen Hintergrund und geben Einblick in das weite Spektrum der Praxis. Diese verfolgen therapeutische Prozesse im Einzelsetting Erwachsener und Kinder wie auch gruppentherapeutischer Möglichkeiten ... liegt hier ein Buch vor, das die Mühe des Durcharbeitens vielfach lohnt ..." Psychologische Medizin Nr. 3/2005
