Fritz pearls and Gestalt Therapy
Gestalt therapy is perhaps the most phenomenological and pragmatic of the humanistic approaches. The focus of Gestalt therapy is on the here-and-now of immediate experience and the integration of fragmented parts of the personality. Gestalt therapists agree that emphasizing the ‘why’ of behavior, i.e. insight and explanations, or analyzing past events is far less therapeutically useful than stressing the more overt ‘what’ and ‘how’ of present behavior, or the specific ways in which unfinished business from the past intrudes on current functioning.
