Aggression, Time, and Understanding is the 1st e-book of Staemmler’s writings to be released in English. In the early sections of this book, Staemmler (supported through his Buddhist spouse, Barbara) comprehensively explores and questions the normal Gestalt remedy idea of aggression and proposes a brand new method of operating with anger and hostility. additional sections comprise in-depth examinations of the themes of time (the "Here and Now" and "Regressive Processes") and knowing ("Dialogue and Interpretation" and "Cultivated Uncertainty"). From Staemmler’s "critical gaze," Dan Bloom observes, "concepts become refreshed, re-formed, and revitalized constructs in order to proceed to increase the speculation and perform of up to date Gestalt therapy."
