'A well-researched, clearly written book...Petruska Clarkson and
JenniferMackewn did a splendid job organizing the theoretical
material...Their judicious use of graphics enhances their
discussions...The chapter on Perls' contributions to practice is
nicely peppered by samples of his actual therapy work and this is
true for other chapters. This, I imagine, is how Fritz would have
liked it: to let his work speak for itself...Petruska Clarkson and
Jennifer Mackewn have carefully crafted and produced a powerfully
informative book. Its pages are crammed with up-to-date facts and
issues relating to Perls...The work is lean, not one word is
wasted. Congratulations!' - British Gestalt Journal Fritz Perls was
the co-founder of Gestalt Therapy, which is based on a holistic
view of people and their relationship to the environment, and which
remains one of the most influential approaches in counselling and
psychotherapy today. This book provides a clear account of the
diverse life of this popular but controversial psychotherapist and
discusses his ideas simply and lucidly. The book includes examples
of Perls' work, drawn from transcripts and films of his
demonstration sessions. A further feature is a full acknowledgement
of the criticisms and appreciations which Perls' life and work have
attracted and an honest evaluation of whether and to what extent
they are justified.
