ANKARA, Turkey (PRWEB) February 04, 2015
When she started learning about the Gestalt Therapy, Prof. Dr. Ceylan Das became very impressed that she thought it would be best to share her knowledge about this type of therapy. In “Integration and Growth” (published by Xlibris), she emphasizes the integration of the person both with his/her feelings, thoughts and body and with his/her environment. On a specific scale, it helps readers to see themselves from a wider perspective, to actualize themselves as they are, and to have better relations as a “grown” person.
Das writes this book with two things she hopes to achieve: one is to introduce the Gestalt therapy approach, while the other is to lend a hand to therapists in therapy training, in order to raise their therapeutic knowledge and skill levels. By introducing the therapy, Das makes readers aware of their needs, wishes and the styles of contact they use in their relations, their unfinished businesses, their impasses and their resistance to change.
Helping people establish contact with themselves and with others with understanding, tolerance and empathy is the main focus of Das’ “Integration and Growth.”
According to the Gestalt therapy approach, awareness is like an inland sea a person can reach for whenever he/she is in trouble and where he/she can access the source of those troubles. This can be very hard at times, but every voyage taken on this sea has a cooling and invigorating effect.
“I hope that this book will contribute to your being more aware of yourself and those around you, to your integration with yourself and the world without judging or accusing; without feeling ashamed, scared or worried, and to exist as fully-grown and as you are,” she says.
