What is the Gestalt field theory?
The Gestalt field theory states that “behaviour is a function of a person in an environment”. This means that a person’s behaviour can’t be viewed in isolation from the situation they are in. This theory views the client’s behaviour as something that can be changed irrespective of the situation. Field theory implies that the individual and their behaviour can be viewed and explored in their individual experience, or in the context of the environment.
Who developed gestalt field theory?
Gestalt field theory was developed by Kurt Lewin in the 1940s.
