Summary

Integrative Gestalt Practice (IGP) is a new approach to understanding and working with complexity and wholeness in people's lives. Amongst the many published books on the market today focusing on the need for specialization and manualization, this book introduces an alternative approach to working professionally with people. By combining basic principles from the gestalt-approach with basic elements of integral theory introduced by Ken Wilber, IGP develops a frontline framework for integrating different forms of theoretical and practical knowledge of human life-processes. This, for instance, can sustain the integration of various psychotherapeutic approaches, and - on a more general level - raise a more common capacity for perspective taking and meaningful disagreements between people. The book shows in various ways how concepts of field theory, self-regulation, contact, awareness and creative experimentation can be directly applied in working with people. The IGP model can be used in many different contexts: in therapy, organisational work, coaching and pedagogy. The book contains a rich combination of theoretical elaborations and practical exercises.
