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.
