Click here to apply

Gestalt is translated as "pattern" or "whole." It is used in psychology and therapy to explain the minds tendency  to complete perceptual information by generating information to fill the gaps based on previous experience of a phenomenon. Psychology focuses on visual perception and therapy expands this to include all human experience with the goal of increasing awareness. Gestalt Theory can be approached from both the psychological viewpoint and the therapeutic approach.  Your dissertation should include as much of your own insights as possible and discuss perception and beliefs and how these can be challenged therapeutically.

Your work should concentrate on the work of therapist Frederick Perls and include on the influences of Gestalt and other Psychologists.
