I started reading Laura Perls when I was getting ready for the training in Developmental Somatic Psychotherapy, created by Ruella Frank within the Contemporary Gestalt Therapy.
I was amazed by the depth of her thinking, how sensitive when working in psychotherapy she was and the impact she had on the people she met. So different to what we had been told about her husband Fritz Perls in my first gestalt training.
She cofounded the Gestalt Therapy with Fritz Perls and Paul Goodman. I am grateful to the training with Ruella Frank for having started to meeting her.
She is one of the authors we will include in the Study Group about Contemporary Gestalt Therapy that will start, in person, in October. In Seville.
