GESTALTISM

Written by

A school of psychology based on the concept that an individual’s sense of wholeness is more valuable than a piecemeal approach to perception and behaviour. Founded in Germany early in the 20th century, the school’s practitioners regarded the whole as more than a sum of its parts. Aimed at resolving personal problems, the therapy increased subjects’ self-awareness of all aspects of themselves in their environment.
