  • Volume 16 Issue 1 - Beyond phenomena: Facing the reality of the social
           world
    • Abstract: Price-Robertson, Rhys
      In this essay, I argue that gestalt therapy's anti-realism can make it difficult for our tradition to account for things that exist independently of individual human perception, such as social structures, institutions, and material resources. I suggest that the skillful navigation of many of the most pressing issues facing contemporary psychotherapeutic communities - including issues of equality and social justice - depends on a collective capacity to acknowledge the independent reality of the social world, on the one hand, and phenomenal experience, on the other hand. I join a growing group of authors who believe that contemporary realist philosophies (e.g., critical realism) could provide a flexible and encompassing meta-theoretical framework for gestalt therapy, as they accommodate both ontological realism, as well as the epistemological relativism that is so central to the practice of gestalt therapy.

  • Volume 16 Issue 1 - Gestalt: A tale of two hemispheres
    • Abstract: Evans, Anna
      The purpose of this article is to describe Gestalt therapy as a relational, nonlinear, holistic methodology, from a neuroscientific perspective. It focusses on the research of Iain McGilchrist, a psychiatrist and former Oxford literary scholar who recently wrote about neuroscientific views of left and right brain hemisphere functions. In an era where the culture of therapy has been dominated by more linear, explicit, protocol-based practices (Denham- Vaughan 2010), I highlight how McGilchrist's writing supports the growing research which shows that effective change in psychotherapy relies less on what is said and more on how the intersubjective space is shared between client and therapist (Schore, 2014). I also utilise the evidence regarding the implicit, non-verbal and holistic processing style of the right hemisphere to make connections with key Gestalt philosophical principles and ideas such as phenomenology, dialogic relating, field theory and the principle of pragnanz. I raise more difficult questions of how practice and training of therapists may be enhanced given this knowledge. These ideas have the potential to anchor Gestalt therapeutic work within a humanising neuroscientific framework, providing another affirmation of why we do what we do.

  • Volume 15 Issue 2 - Extending dialogical existential theory: 'Living
           through' as underlying I-thou
    • Abstract: Hosemans, Dominic
      Dialogical Existentialism is one of the pillars of relational gestalt therapy. Dialogical existentialism rests upon the ideas of inclusion, presence, confirmation, as well as surrendering to the inter-subjective space. The current article extends the idea of dialogical existentialism through a Japanese philosophical lens of internal and external relations. Within this context, it is discussed that dialogical existentialism is a necessary but not sufficient condition for the experience of an I-thou moment. Additionally, it is discussed that 'living through' an experience with a client is the outcome of developing the conditions underlying dialogue. Therefore, it is argued that 'living through' an experience with the client in psychotherapy is the sufficient condition in order to experience an I-thou moment. Finally, the idea of 'living through' an experience with the client in the therapeutic situation is highlighted through an extensive case study with a young girl who had experienced complex relational trauma.

  • Volume 15 Issue 2 - How wide is the field': Gestalt therapy,
           capitalism and the natural world
    • Abstract: Bednarek, Steffi
      A recent UN report has warned that we are heading for an unprecedented global crisis if we don't radically change our ways. Climate change is no longer a hypothetical argument but a reality that threatens the existence of human and other than human life on the planet. With that information in mind, can we afford to keep practicing psychotherapy with a focus on the individual and their personal needs, or do we need to radically question the role of psychotherapy in its lack of relationship to the more than human world' This article investigates where aspects of Gestalt Psychotherapy may be too closely aligned with the capitalist paradigm, that risks costing us the Earth. I argue that we need to widen our notion of what is part of the field. I reflect on our theory in relation to anthropocentrism, individuality, materiality, privatisation, growth, progress and the lack of a cosmological perspective. This is by no means an exhaustive overview but an attempt to open the conversation.

  • Volume 12 Issue 2 - Gestalt therapeutic practice, physiotherapists and
           people with chronic pain: A literature review
    • Abstract: Barlow, Shelley E
      My interest in chronic pain started very early in my career as a physiotherapist. Chronic pain is widespread in our community with one in five people affected under 65 and one in three over 65 (Blyth, March, Nicholas, and Cousins, 2005; Vos, et al., 2012). Chronic pain can be a significant source of suffering and distress and can have a profound impact on a person's life. People with chronic pain find their way to many different health care professionals but are considered difficult to treat by some due to the anger, distress and suffering often exhibited (Halpern, 2014). Also, many physiotherapists and other health professionals avoid contact with people who have chronic pain due to their own emotional reactions and responses (Synnott, O'Keeffe, Bunzli, Dankaerts, O'Sullivan, P., and O' Sullivan, K., 2015). This is despite the evidence showing that people with chronic pain respond to a comprehensive and relational approach, where the person with chronic pain is seen, validated and their lived experiences understood (Cohen and Quintner, 2011; Main and George, 2011; Nicholas and George, 2011). Until I did my training as a Gestalt therapist I often felt anxious or uncertain in the face of a client's suffering from chronic pain. My training provided me with clearer understanding, insight, empathy and compassion into my own and the others responses that now allows me to engage more fully with people with chronic pain. Patient outcomes are improved with a deeper engagement and this has been shown to minimise disability (Edwards, Jones, Thacker, and Swisher, 2014; Nijs, Van Wilgen, Van Oosterwijck, Van Ittersum, and Meeus, 2011). The following literature review has emerged from my experiences as a physiotherapist who works with Gestalt therapy, theory and practice to understand the meaning people with chronic pain make of their pain experiences and how my understanding supports their recovery.

  • Volume 12 Issue 2 - Peer reviewed article Love's threshing floor: Sifting
           the participatory wheat from the perennial chaff in the transpersonal
           psychology 'familiar' to Gestalt therapy
    • Abstract: Lahood, GA
      This paper takes a look at the participatory philosophy that has challenged the status quoin transpersonal psychology. Participatory theorists claim that Ken Wilber's 'perennialism', the once dominant model, is redundant in terms of a viable transpersonal framework or developmental model. Lasting transpersonal contributions to Gestalt therapy are more likely to come from participatory philosophy than from perennialism. The paper will also explore a few of the perennialist assumptions residing in the Gestalt literature.

  • Volume 12 Issue 2 - Working with people who identify as asylum seekers or
           refugees
    • Abstract: Vogel, Sabine
      This essay is about this world, the world around us, and the crevices of society where asylum seekers and refugees exist. In 2009 there were already 40 million people worldwide who were victims of war, political oppression, and torture in all their insidious forms and humanly devised demonic variations (Di Tomasso, 2010). This showed a huge increase of asylum seekers and refugees compared to 9.9 million refugees worldwide in 2006 (Murray, Davidson, and Schweitzer, 2008, p. 5). Asylum seekers and refugees are disenfranchised people whose lives are dominated on a daily basis by fear, shame, guilt, and terrorized nightmares, flashbacks, or unwanted memories of painful, life-threatening experiences they have been through. They are individuals wrestling with feelings of hate and love, searching for safety, trust, and respect somewhere in the world, far from their homes. It is about people who were confronted with evil and who tried to rebuild their lives in unknown, new surroundings, facing another culture, language, norms, and values. It is about existence in societies often indifferent to their hardship and marginal lives.

  • Volume 12 Issue 2 - Biphobia: Implications for therapists working with the
           LGBTI community
    • Abstract: Foale, Jacinta
      This essay addresses the experiences of bisexual people that may be presented as issues in a Gestalt therapy situation, and what may be required of therapists working with this population. In Australia in 2016 we celebrated the 38th MardiGras in Sydney, while at the same time some members of the Australian Parliament are questioning the value, and indeed the necessity, of the Safe Schools Program which has been developed by the Government to address the bullying of children in schools who's sexuality appears to be something other than heterosexual. Early this year in Indonesia, an LGBT support group was established on a Jakarta university campus. An outcry followed and it was quickly shut down. Indonesia's Minister of Research Technology and Higher Education reacted by saying members of the LGBT they would not be allowed to exist on any of Indonesia's university campuses, and should not be allowed to grow or be given room to conduct its activities (Mariani and Sampeliling, 2016). Despite growing awareness of the reality of diversity in human sexuality, acceptance of this diversity still cannot be assumed.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - Falling - a creative process
    • Abstract: Claid, Emilyn; Osborne, Lynda
      The 2014 9th International GANZ Conference in Brisbane offered us our third opportunity to present Falling - a Creative Process, following workshops at UKAGP in the UK (2013) and AAGT (2014) in Monterey, California. To write now, for the GANZ Journal, we are drawing on our experience of all three events. Our presentation took the form of a workshop, the core of which was participatory embodied tasks. This paper highlights these experiential tasks, reaching towards wider fields of knowledge to contextualize the practice and suggesting clinical usefulness in Gestalt psychotherapeutic practice. Lynda has many years experience as a Gestalt trainer and practitioner. Emilyn, whilst also a Gestalt psychotherapist, has a background in dance, choreography and performance.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - Beanbags and biryani: Digesting the third culture kid
           experience in a Gestalt context
    • Abstract: Stedman, Raewyn
      When people spend a significant part of their childhood living in a culture which is not their parents' culture, they may be known as Third Culture Kids(TCKs). The experience of a TCK has an impact on their development, emotional life, Weltanschauung, behaviour and identity that is different to that of someone who was brought up in one culture. The TCK often adopts a chameleon type of behaviour and therefore is not always recognised or understood. In this paper I explore: some of the features of a TCK: their early field; the often swift and multiple changes in that field and how it has impacted on identity formation; common interruptions in the cycle of experience; the layers of repeated grief that are present; and the effect this all has on the beginning therapist who is a TCK as she engages with Gestalt therapy - yet another culture.

  • Volume 11 Issue 2 - Creating a fidelity scale for gestalt therapy
    • Abstract: Fogarty, Madeleine
      This paper is based on a presentation at the 9th International GANZ Conference in Brisbane, October 2014. I have tried not to alter it too much, but am uncomfortably aware that there are augmentations and additions that I was tempted to include, particularly since attending the 2nd International Gestalt Research Conference in Cape Cod in May 2015. However, I have been encouraged to stay as close to the original presentation as possible. Suffice to say that there is currently a lot more research going on in Gestalt than this article suggests, and the collaborative environment at that conference bodes well for the future of Gestalt therapy.

      Theories are wholes, unifications of numerous facts. Sometimes a simple theory has to be corrected when new factors, not fitting into the original conception, are discovered. Sometimes so many additions have to be provided that we come to a confusing complexity instead of to a working hypothesis. When such a situation arises we have to pause and seek a reorientation, look for new common factors that can simplify the scientific outlook. (Perls, 1947).

  • Volume 11 Issue 1 - Using sociodrama to explore and engage with complex
           thematic metaphors
    • Abstract: Howie, Peter
      This paper presents an application of sociodrama and sociometry in a session at a Gestalt Australia and New Zealand (GANZ) conference. The purpose of this paper is to present and consider the use of these methods in non-problem oriented contexts. The examples in the paper are written in present tense using an annotated narrative style which allows for an explication of the ideas and concepts from sociodrama, sociometry and psychodrama as they arise in the narrative. The paper begins with a brief introduction of the concepts of psychodrama, sociodrama, and sociometry. Then follows an example of a sociodramatic enactment including a group warm-up phase, an enactment phase, and a sharing phase. The paper concludes with a brief discussion of the value of this type of process in such a setting.

           perspective
    • Abstract: Manessis, Sandra
      The ocean has always been the place I go to regenerate, to awaken my senses, and, at times, for solace. The energy of the place soothes, cleanses and calms me, helping me regain equilibrium. Now on a visceral level, it is a source of pain - a place that I can no longer easily access, but I can cast my gaze on it and see others there, and smell their freedom, their pleasure. Not envy, no, rather a deep yearning and aching to engage and merge with that environment, to lose myself temporarily in the saltiness, the warmth and the vastness.

    • Abstract: Brooks, Sally
      In this paper my intention is to take us on a journey through Gestalt therapy's relationship with language (predominantly verbal). I will give a brief review of the treatment of language in traditional Gestalt literature before outlining a more contemporary view of language as a clearly expressed function of relationship. I will then introduce the opportunity we have to combine the science and art of linguistics with Gestalt practice to begin to understand the inevitable intersubjective nature of relational dynamics and the qualities of the here-and-now conversation.

  • Volume 15 Issue 1 - Cerebral integration as underlying relational Gestalt
           therapy
    • Abstract: Hosemans, Dominic
      The fundamental principles of Relational Gestalt therapy encompass phenomenology, dialogue, and field theory. The current essay argues that the fundamental principles of gestalt therapy are connected in terms of being right hemispheric predominate. The phenomenological method entails attempting to see the world without the lens of one's past, including placing particular experience into categories. The essay argues that categories of experience are 're-presented' within the left hemisphere and applied to direct experience, whereas the right hemisphere attends to experience in an open and receptive manner. Further, field theory requires the perception of oneself being interrelated with the world; which is associated with the way the right hemisphere attends to the world, where everything is perceived in context within a coherent whole. The essay furthermore argues that it is essentially the integration of the left and right hemisphere functioning that ultimately underlies the ideas of relational gestalt therapy.
