He immigrated to South Africa to escape Nazi persecution he was Jewish and ultimately immigrated to the United States. Gestalt therapy was developed by Perls in the s. Largely influenced by research concepts derived from studies performed by psychologists working on human perception, Perls used self-perception as a fundamental building block. A practical example is in shape perception. For instance, consider a square which as a geometric figure comprises four straight and equal lines bounded by four right angles; however we do not see this.

What we see is a square. Though the square must comprise the straight lines and angles, it is the complete shape we see? In this respect Gestalt theory is therefore a holistic way of approaching psychology, wherein the individual psychological components, whilst important, are very different from the gestalt complex which is formed and which will have very different function.

Human beings are viewed as a complicated, interacting system of psychological components acting as a complete body and places less reliance on individual features such as imagination, IQ, empathy and ability to move. This has ramifications for patient treatment.

In Gestalt theory a patient cannot expect to be successfully treated if individual symptoms and psychological components are only addressed.

In particular, Gestalt theory places great reliance on what is known as homeostasis. Homeostasis deals with the natural, internal equilibrium of a living organism expressed in basic organic terms. Medical and biological indicators may be blood sugar levels, blood pressure, muscle function and eyesight ability or what may be described as physiological functionality. Psychological functionality is expressed in homeostatic capacity, or how a patient uses adaptive mechanisms to achieve internal equilibrium.

Underlying Gestalt theory is that physiological and homeostatic functionality is interlinked and that mental health cannot be distinguished from physical health in terms of assessment and treatment for a successful outcome. Organisms are subject to an array of environmental variables under normal circumstances; however they are only effectively able to adapt using one mechanism at a time.

Accordingly, organisms develop a hierarchical process for employing adaptive mechanisms to be applied to themselves to maintain equilibrium based upon what is most readily apparent to the individual.

Gestalt theory utilizes this figure in the background analogy to see the organism as a viable reflection of the true self, and that mental health issues arise when the homeostatic process is unable to adequately operate. A failure in the homeostatic process means there is a failure to properly identify their urgent needs in proper alignment with the existing environment, typically because of rigidity in how the patient views and interacts with their environment.

Mobility is the major differentiating factor between healthy and neurotic patients. A healthy subject will actively interact with their environment in a dynamic fashion as they respond to change and either adapt their own posture or seek to change the environment around them. This requires a high degree of self-awareness, and Gestalt theory seeks to reactivate that self-awareness through whatever underlying psychological disorder is present. By re-establishing environmental connections between the patient and changing environment, the patient is able to achieve a personal sense of achievement and avoid the sense of inadequacy or frustration which frequently results otherwise.
