Gestalt Therapy Around The World, edited by Eleanor O'Leary, represents a major contribution to the professional literature on psychological therapies. It is an excellent explanation of the theory and practice of Gestalt Therapy as well as how this therapy is practiced in several countries. This book is a must read for anyone who is interested in or practices Gestalt Therapy.-Richard C. Page, PhD, Professor Emeritus, Department of Counseling and Human Development Services, University of Georgia, Athens, USA. Eleanor O'Leary in this textbook accomplishes an extraordinary difficult task. She proposes an integrative Gestalt approach of the whole person (be it cognitive, affective, behavioral, or bodily) which is well based on the integration of the history, key concepts, dialogue and contact, techniques, experiment and dreams of Gestalt therapy. Furthermore she integrates the Gestalt contributions from 17 different countries from all around the globe!-Joannis N. Nestoros, Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Crete, Greece
