Launched in 1997, Gestalt Review is a peer-reviewed journal that provides a worldwide forum for exchanges in theory and practice. It concentrates on the Gestalt approach at all levels of system: from the individual, couples, families, and groups, to organizations, educational settings, and the community-at-large. Published two times a year, the journal includes original articles dealing with politics, philosophy, gender, and culture. There is also a section for book reviews and reflections. It is targeted to Gestalt theorists, Gestalt therapists, Organizational Development professionals, psychologists, social workers, clinicians, counselors, educators, and the community-at-large.

The Gestalt International Study Center (GISC) believes that awareness of yourself and how you work with others is the path toward having significant influence on people, greater personal and professional growth, and ultimate success. At the Gestalt International Study Center, powerful and practical learning experiences help you develop the ability to act with awareness and intention, to respond to challenges with more confidence and ease, and to create profound and positive change.
