    It is a monumental task to gather all available Gestalt therapy resources.  Working together we can build a comprehensive catalogue of Gestalt references in all languages!  Add your own publications or contribute to the community effort by adding the works of others.  Now you can e-mail us your list of references Go to the page to send the references or for information on how the refereence should appear. Add to the growing international Library of Gestalt resources and references — a book, a journal, an article, conference presentation, DVD's, videos or electronic media.  The Gestalt Therapy Network will compile the data and make it available.  
We work together to build an international listing of Gestalt resources and references.

  • THE GESTALT PRACTITIONERS REFERRAL BOARD  - Now available on The Practitioners and Neighborhood Forums

    Here you will find case studies, clinical vignettes, transcripts — successes and failures, polished and unpolished, with commentary and without — all examples of the Gestalt practitioner at work.  They represent the breadth and scope of the Gestalt approach and the varied styles of those whose work is at heart guided by Gestalt theoretical principles.
