The article describes the entry of Gestalt therapy into research on psychotherapy, allowing it to take its place in current debates. This research is evolving towards taking better account of the complexity of therapeutic work, by revaluing qualitative work and studying more finely the modalities of adjustment of the therapist to the characteristics of the client and the evolution of the relationship. The article presents current research and the relevance of gestalt practitioners’ contributions to psychotherapy research.

British Gestalt Journal. 2018, Vol. 27, No.1, 7–13
In this paper, the four coveners of the Paris Conference (May 2017) tell us why and how a research tradition in Gestalt therapy is starting to grow: the uniqueness and relevance of Gestalt therapy merits joining the psychotherapy research field to receive legitimation and the Gestalt community has already undertaken good research projects and achieved valuable results. The Gestalt community is now mobilised and the success of the Paris Conference seems to be a turning point. The authors continue by discussing how research can fit with Gestalt anthropology and show how this emerging tradition is connected with and part of the wider field of contemporary psychotherapy research. Finally, they focus on the training and development of the reflexive awareness of the therapist, advocating a more research-orientated attitude.

The author develops a pragmatic perspective on the therapeutic experience, in particular from the therapist’s perspective, and this is done in two essential realms. He suggests, on the one hand, that the therapist’s aim with his client might be to teach “attentional gestures” that allow the progress of the process of awareness. On the other hand, by putting cooperative action in the center of the transformation process, he emphasize that being a Gestaltist “is constantly and patiently to establish the conditions of intense cooperation and remain open on the opportunity of a joint and continual investigation on hazards inherent in this cooperation”.
