🔸„Beyond the Hot Seat: Gestalt Theory and Practice of Relational Group Therapy“

👉🏼In Gestalt Therapy, self is seen as an ongoing assimilation of experience which is continually challenged – to the extent that we allow it – by our participation in what Stern called the ‘intersubjective matrix’ of our being with other people.
👉🏼Each group member is faced, both explicitly and implicitly through the mirror neuron interactions, with a variety of different ways of seeing and engaging with the world, and with a slow, aware discovery of his/her own response to this variety.
👉🏼Grounding the group in the Gestalt theory of relational self or Stern’s intersubjective matrix highlights an important tenet of the Manchester model: that the three areas of group therapeutic focus – individual, interpersonal and whole-group – are not separable, but rather each elucidates the other.
👉🏼What the individual does is done in the matrix of the group situation; and the group can pick up and amplify what is importantly unfinished for one of its members.
👉🏼Therefore, any exploration would typically involve a continual movement between these levels, rather than staying with one group member, or conversely with the whole group.
