Contact and Context: New Directions in Gestalt Coaching

Front Cover
Ty Francis, Malcolm Parlett
Taylor & Francis, Nov 25, 2016 - Psychology - 294 pages

This collection brings together some leading figures in Gestalt coaching to take stock of the field and consider how it might move forward. It covers the principles of Gestalt coaching and encourages practitioners to rethink the application of Gestalt in new ways and new settings – e.g. leadership, management and team development. Individual chapters also explore radical and personal perspectives on Gestalt coaching, from considering the place of embodiment to ‘being’ in coaching practice and looking at the transformational micro-moments of the client encounter.
