Transforming the way you live and work in the world

Gestalt Review

Gestalt Review, launched in 1997, provides a forum for theory
and practice exchanges throughout the world. 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.
