This paper is based on a presentation at the 9th International GANZ Conference in Brisbane, October 2014. I have tried not to alter it too much, but am uncomfortably aware that there are augmentations and additions that I was tempted to include, particularly since attending the 2nd International Gestalt Research Conference in Cape Cod in May 2015. However, I have been encouraged to stay as close to the original presentation as possible. Suffice to say that there is currently a lot more research going on in Gestalt than this article suggests, and the collaborative environment at that conference bodes well for the future of Gestalt therapy.
