The international editorial board concentrates on the Gestalt approach at all system levels ranging from the individual, couples, families and groups, to organizations and the community at large. The journal also publishes original papers dealing with politics, philosophy, gender, and culture. Gestalt Review is peer-reviewed and published three times a year.
