Gestalt II: Experiment

Demonstrations of individual and group experiments are followed by didactic learning that further explores the central Gestalt themes. The concepts of organicity, figure-ground perceptual fields, polarities, top-dog/underdog, the four explosions, contact boundary, and satisfaction/frustration are explored. The process of a therapeutic experiment is introduced, and students learn to identify stages of a Gestalt working. Students work under the supervision of the teacher. If this class is not successfully completed, both Gestalt I and Gestalt II must be retaken together. Prerequisite: CNSM601.
