Gestalt BookAttention "visual learners" (that is, most people): If you've got a spare 9:59, here's a Gestalt Therapy video nugget courtesy of the University of Texas. Demonstrates some basic Gestalt interventions. There's more where this came from--I'll try from time to time to post some of the better ones.

What's Gestalt Therapy?

Gestalt therapy is a form of psychotherapy that emphasizes personal responsibility and focuses on the individual's experience in the present moment, the therapist–client relationship, the environmental and social contexts of a person's life, and the self-regulating adjustments people make as a result of their overall situation. It was developed by Fritz Perls, Laura Perls and Paul Goodman in the 1940s and 1950s, and was first described in the 1951 book Gestalt Therapy.
