The goal of the Gestalt therapy is identified as bringing about change in the people. This change is mainly brought about by employing contact between the environment and the clients. Almost all Gestalt theory based therapists take the approach of contact to bring change in the client’s behavior and actions. The method however in which the therapy is imparted to the clients is divided into five categories. These include the therapeutic relationships, the phenomenological method, employing an experimental technique, cognition as well as a wilder field of operation.
In the therapeutic relationship technique, the therapist aims to bring change in the willingness and the capability of the client through creation of a relationship of dialogue. The therapist notes the verbal as well as the nonverbal behavior of the client in the setting as a component of the experiences, awareness and beliefs of the client.
