The time is ripe, more than fifty years after the publication of the magnum opus by Perls, Hefferline & Goodman, to publish a book on the topic of cre ativity in Gestalt therapy. The idea for this book was conceived in March 2001, on the island of Sicily, at the very first European Conference of Gestalt Therapy Writers of the European Association [or Gestalt Therapy. Our start ing point was an article on art and creativity in Gestalt therapy, which was presented there by one of the editors, and illuminated by a vision, held by the other editor, of bringing together colleagues from around the world to contribute to a qualified volume on the subject of creativity within the realm of Gestalt therapy. We wanted to continue the professional discourse inter nationally and capture the synergetic effects of experienced colleagues' re flections on various aspects of our chosen subject. Moreover, we intended to explore how the theoretical reflection of one's practice can inspire effective interventions and, vice versa, how the discussion of practical experiences can shape new theoretical directions. Hence, our aim in this book is to create a forum on the concept of creativ ity in Gestalt therapy.

'This book is not just a practical handbook; it is also the fruit of two exceptional people's experience: Serge and Anne Ginger. It reflects their long international experience in several methods such as psychoanalysis, psychodrama, Gestalt Therapy - which is highly indebted to them - and EMDR.This guide comes at a time when, in France and several other European countries, new rules and regulations for the practice of psychotherapy are starting to appear. It's a practical vade mecum for the beginner psychotherapist, but is also an invitation to his experienced colleagues, to share profound reflections stemming from their long-standing careers as psychotherapists and trainers.I hope that this work will be as successful as it deserves to be [in making] these insights and pieces of advice accessible not only to all young practitioners, but also to more experienced ones. It will be especially useful for psychotherapy training institutes.'- Mony Elkaim, Chairman of the European Association for Psychotherapy (EAP), from the Foreword
