There has been a renewed interest in the last ten years in the underpinnings - theoretical, philosophical, and historical - of the Gestalt approach. Often in the past, these have been lost in oversimplified versions of the therapy. The author's aim in his writings has been to provide a full and coherent account of Gestalt theory, and to emphasise our links to our therapeutic and philosophical heritage, particularly psychoanalysis and existentialism. His theme is a field-relational theory of self as the centrepiece of the approach, and how this has been placed within a structure that is still recognisably psychoanalytic. In this approach, self is understood as meaningful only in relation to what is taken as other, and how that other is contacted. The formation of a relatively coherent self-concept is a task, not a given, and can be problematic as well as helpful (when it no longer supports the person's life-situation).

Clients who come to psychotherapy unmotivated, or who become discouraged as treatment progresses, pose a singular challenge to practitioners. Despite the central importance of motivation for the therapeutic healing process, little has been written that addresses this issue. Motivating Clients in Therapy questions the widely accepted assumption of the adequately motivated client. Richard Rappaport presents a four-phased model of motivation that emphasizes the fear of loss of what is known and familiar as the central inhibitor to personal growth. The motivation to love oneself and others must by catalyzed by an active psychotherapy relationship. Rappaport offers therapists a practical and theoretical guide to increase treatment effectiveness with a wide variety of clients.

Some of the major dimensions and subtleties underlying issues of race and culture and the impact these can have on counseling and psychotherapy relationships are explored. The context is British, but many of the issues and concerns are applicable to therapists in other societies. Chapter 1 describes the climate in which the discussion is set, a climate where counseling and psychotherapy are established as healing systems. Issues of race and power are analyzed. The cultural backgrounds of the counselor and the client have important implications for the understanding they develop. Sensitivity, fostered by the counselor's training and theoretical background, is essential in order that the minority person finds in counseling the opportunity to express thoughts and acknowledge experiences. A conceptual model is presented to help the counselor understand a variety of culturally appropriate helping interventions. The text also offers transcripts from transcultural counseling sessions that may be used for training and discussion purposes. Very real challenges face the counselor in today's multiracial and multicultural world, and it is essential that counseling not become another oppressive or damaging instrument of society. (Contains 2 tables, 22 figures, and 227 references.) (SLD)
