3.0 out of 5 stars A struggle to follow
Gestalt language can be difficult and for me Clarkson falls into the trap of discussing complex concepts in a technical way that does not lend itself to the uninitiated. This is billed as an introductory text but for the beginner it is hard work. That said, it is cartainly one to have on your bookshelf as it contains some fine thinking - just don't start with it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to follow through and be concentrated, 15 April 2011
The book is ok, it gives lots of good insights about Gestalt approach, however, the reading is difficult to follow through and keep concentrated on it.
It is difficult to digest the book, on the other hand, it does gives us an introduction of Gestalt for beginners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Introduction, 20 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Clarkson was a Gestalt practitioner for over 30 years, and it really shows in this straight-forward, jargon-free introductory text. Cleverly structured around the Gestalt cycle, she guides the reader through each phase with clarity, wit and illuminating example. Made the subject come to life for me, and has given me a great base for further, more technical study. Excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars An intelligent and compelling scoping of the subject, 23 Jan 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Gestalt Counselling in Action (Counselling in Action series) (Paperback)
Petruska Clarkson is a renowned leader in this field and gives it its due in this overview. The initial section on the historical context is a bit dry. But the book gains momentum as the theory and application are explored.
