This paper examines similarities between Adlerian and Gestalt psychology theories, and their respective psychotherapies. It traces the history of Gestalt psychology and the development of Gestalt Theoretical Psychotherapy.

From the Paper:

"Gestalt psychology traces its origins to when Max Wertheimer studied phenomenal movement in the way the cinema operates. Moving pictures do not actually move but we see movement because we impose our perception of a series of pictures as movement and this is an example of Gestalt organization. We don't passively respond to the world but we interact with it. Our environment is not just reality but is also subject to our perceptions of it."
