Gestalt is one of the most popular methods derived from the trend of humanistic psychology right after psychoanalysis and behaviorism. The birth date of Gestalt psychotherapy is considered to be 1951, when the first book by Fritz Persel was published: “Gestalt Therapy.”

In creating Gestalt, Fritz Perls explored knowledge from many sources, including. from psychoanalysis, holism, character psychology or behaviorism by which he took a holistic view of the human being.

In November 2022, after more than 70 years, the book “Gestalt Therapy” lived to see a Polish translation and is now available for purchase.

“Me is Me, You is You.
I am responsible for my life, you for yours.
I am not in this world to meet your expectations.
Nor you to fulfill mine.
If our paths cross then great,
But if that doesn’t happen, then each of us will walk our own path.
For I will not love myself if I betray myself for you,
Nor will I love you if you are as I want you to be, not as you really are.
Me is Me, You is You.”
-Fritz Perls-.
