A working synthesis of Transactional Analysis and Gestalt therapy

By supplying the necessary theoretical link between the predominantly Gestalt concepts of retroflection and projection, a basic core is provided for the fundamental synthesis of Gestalt therapy and Transactional Analysis. This synthesis suggests that the ego states of Parent and Child correspond in all cases to particular forms of retroflection and projection. The activities of retroflection and projection take as their vehicles of expression the Parent and Child, which are by and large the products of experience. Transactional Analysis and Gestalt therapy are thus 2 complementary approaches to the same psychodynamic factors, and hence a synthesis of their best elements should prove stronger than either alone.

A working synthesis of Transactional Analysis and Gestalt therapy

Abstract

By supplying the necessary theoretical link between the predominantly Gestalt concepts of retroflection and projection, a basic core is provided for the fundamental synthesis of Gestalt therapy and Transactional Analysis. This synthesis suggests that the ego states of Parent and Child correspond in all cases to particular forms of retroflection and projection. The activities of retroflection and projection take as their vehicles of expression the Parent and Child, which are by and large the products of experience. Transactional Analysis and Gestalt therapy are thus 2 complementary approaches to the same psychodynamic factors, and hence a synthesis of their best elements should prove stronger than either alone.
