Well, this book has very high viscosity and hard to digest, very raw and unrefined Some of the author statements are questionable while others quite interesting but almost all unproven, it appears Perls didn t have much of the prove to back it up at a time of writing this book Though its very speculative in nature it did provide a general new direction in psychotherapy based on synthesis of Freid, Reich and Perls own ideas So its obviously not a good choice for those wishing to dive first int Well, this book has very high viscosity and hard to digest, very raw and unrefined Some of the

into gestalt therapy but a good book to see where it came from Because of this carefully recommended This was not nearly as readable and interesting as Gestalt Therapy Verbatim As a first book, and I

This was not nearly as readable and interesting as Gestalt Therapy Verbatim As a first book, and I believe, at one point his dissertation, there is a lot of paper spent dismantling Freud and Adler in an academic, boring tone The hallmarks of 1950 s science writing are there diagrams that look science y as if sadness were also bound by Newtonian physics long, slow arguments that disprove and consider everyone else before getting to the point, and a hefty, seemingly entirely unnecessary sprinkling of homophobia Perls badassness is there however, and glimmers through from time to time, popping like fireworks for the last three chapters on symptoms where he lays out treatment techniques and considerations Below I ve added some of the words and definitions I found interesting or unfamiliar.Screen Expressions no precise referent and which conceal instead of reveal People speaking of nervousness may mean anxiety, irritability, annoyance Thinking is one if the most common screen words In endeavoring to clarify our minds we shouldexpress sic the precise meaning which we wish to convey Neurotic does not experience sensations instead of emotions, but at the expense or even to the exclusion if consciousness of the emotional component having partly lost the feel of himself the senso motoric awareness he experiences as incomplete situation a scotoma blind spot for the psychological manifestation of the emotion neurosis is a disorganization of the proper functioning of the personality within its environment the neurotic symptom is always a sign that the biological self wants attention Introjection means preserving the structure of things taken in, whilst the organism requires their destruction the wolf symbolizes greediness and introjection In the story of little red riding hood the wolf introjects the grandmother, copies her, behaves as if he was she, but his real self is soon unmasked by the little heroine Dummy Complex the dummy allows for the discharge of a certain amount if aggressiveness Four ingredients, so it appears to me, come together to mix the cocktail of ethics differentiation, frustration, the figure background phenomenon, and the law that quantity changes into quality Man in general has forgotten that good and bad were originally emotional reactions, and is inclined to accept good and bad as facts The disadvantage of avoidance is the impairment of the holistic function By avoidance, our spheres of actions and our intelligence disintegrate Every contact, be it hostile or friendly, will increase our spheres, integrate our personality and, with assimilation, contribute to our faculties, as long as it is not fraught with unsurmountable danger, as long as there is a chance to master it Intellectualism is mental hypertrophy, and by no means identical with intelligence, a fact which many people dislike admitting It is an attitude designed to avoid being deeply moved the avoidance is a general factor to be found in probably every neurotic mechanism For manageable tasks one does not need scapegoats or explanations The desire to master ourselves results from insufficient co operation between organism and Ego function The avoidance of external conflicts , however, results in the creation of internal ones The awareness of, and ability to endure, unwanted emotions are the conditio sine qua non for a successful cure these emotions will be discharged once they have become ego functions The suspicious man should suspect himself, the victimized one certainly victimizes his environment If you feel unjustly treated, you can be sure that you are the last one who is fair in his dealings Without accepting their biological reality, idealistic Dr Jekyll and materialistic Mr Hyde will go on existing until mankind has finally destroyed itself Refutes Freud a lot and cites W Reich and Jung a lot too, good Psychologist. Dal punto di vista di una non addetta ai lavori, stata una lettura estenuante Pomposo e logorroico, sembra non arrivare mai al punto e ho dovuto faticare molto per cavare fuori qualche concetto utile.
