Questionnaire on Production and Reading Habits in Gestalt Therapy

This survey is part of a study on the sources of information that are used by gestalt therapists. We ask you to fill it out to help us know what resources we have and which are the most used by the gestalt community.

This study is motivated by the growing interest in research in gestalt therapy, for different reasons:

  • The importance of developing gestalt therapy and its methodology.
  • The pressure from institutional and governmental spheres throughout the world to give support only to forms of therapy that have proven validity through experimentation. This poses a risk to the survival of gestalt therapy that has traditionally lacked research in the channels considered "scientific".

The questionnaire is completed in 10 to 20 minutes depending on how active you are in GT reading and publishing. It is confidential and anonymous. We are interested in the sections that you can fill in  -what you read, which magazines you know, etc.- as well as the sections that you don't because you have no activity in that area -for example, you may not have any publication. We want to get a picture of the resources that gestalt therapists use that is as realistic as possible, and we need you for that!

This work and its dissemination will be possible thanks to the collaboration of different gestalt therapy associations in different ways, ranging from their financial support to the active involvement of their members in gestalt therapy research: the Spanish Association of Gestalt Therapy (AETG), the Polish Association of Gestalt Psychotherapy (PTPG), the European Association for Gestalt Therapy (EAGT) , the Association for the Advancement in Gestalt Therapy (AAGT) and the Mexican Association for Gestalt Psychotherapy (AMPG).

The results of this survey will be published at the Conference on Gestalt therapy research in Santiago de Chile, in May 2019. We thank the organisers of the conference for the research received for this work.

The researchers responsible for this study are Juan Longares and David Picó, from Valencia, Spain. We're part of the Gestaltnet.net team. You can contact us through our emails: juan@gestaltnet.net and david@gestaltnet.net.

Thank you very much in advance for your collaboration.
