We regret to say we are unable to supply this volume at a price that comes close to what IGH offers individuals. Yes, it would be so much easier for you if we could!

Organisations are the operative arm of any State and also the place where individuals realize their uniqueness and commitment to the world. They are essentially the contact boundary between individuals and society.
This book is a collection of practical experiences and theoretical reflections of some skilled trainers, coaches and consultants, who for many years have been using the Gestalt approach in their work with organisations. Each chapter is followed by a comment of an expert of the organisational and/or Gestalt field. This structure provides both a dialectical frame of reference for Gestalt therapy work in organisations and practical tools for working in various situations. Gestalt concepts will powerfully contribute to the maintenance and care of the organisational work.

The book is addressed to all organisational practitioners, coaches, consultants, counsellors and psychotherapists, who want to improve their skills to help people live better and five their best to the organisation they are part of.

The aim is to support every one’s sense of active commitment to society and enable a creative contribution to it.
