This therapy emerges and expands Gestalt techniques into a personal system of psychotherapy and operates at three levels, bringing emotional polarities together.
Kathy feels a sense of separateness. She and her husband separated four years ago, and he recently died. Kathy reflects on relationships and barriers. Dr. Everett Shostrom leads her in an exercise where she expresses anger. Kathy reflects on being a nice girl.
Kathy wants to get past this point without really experiencing it; she does not want to be vulnerable. Kathy compares herself to a flower metaphor; she takes few risks.
Shostrom leads Kathy in a physical exercise to see if they can have a relationship. Kathy's body shakes and she goes through several movements to identify feelings and let go of control. She reflects on feeling angry and standing up for herself.
Kathy reflects on being passive in relationships and moving forward. Shostrom leads her in a reaching exercise. Kathy considers her feelings and learning to risk.
Shostrom reflects on working with Kathy, leading her through exercises, and establishing a relationship.
