About the Author

Gordon Wheeler, Ph.D., and Mark McConville, Ph.D., both senior members of the teaching faculty of the Gestalt Institute of Cleveland, are widely known for their teaching, clinical work, and writings in the Gestalt model. Mark McConville is author of Adolescence; Gordon Wheeler's books in the field include Gestalt Reconsidered and Beyond Individualism.


"Gestalt approaches to work with families, children and their worlds are among the most important new extensions of the Gestalt model over the past generation - and high on the list of the contributions we can make, as practitioners, to the problems of the world. In this rich collection, you will find the exciting depth and range of this work, in applications from individual and family therapy to groups, schools, and beyond. Therapists who work with all ages and all approaches will find much in these chapters to enrich and enliven their perspectives and energy for the work."

- Sonia March Nevis, Co-Director, Center for the Study of Intimate Systems, Gestalt International Study Center

"If you live or work with children, you will be enriched by reading these books."

- Violet Oaklander, from the Preface
