Dear GANZ Members
I am pleased to announce that the May 2018 edition (Vol 14 No 2) of the Gestalt Journal of Australia and New Zealand is now downloaded from the GANZ website here. Apologies for the very late publication of this edition.
The editorial picks up on the theme of the 2019 GANZ Community Gathering/Hui: Catalysts for transformation, with an update on progress and the intentions for an innovative process included. We have an interview with Miriam Taylor who will be visiting Australia and New Zealand next year that explores her interest in trauma therapy and other areas. There is a contribution from Mark Fairfield focussed on leveraging diversity as a way of generating transformative community action. Marie-Anne Chidiac, Sally Denham-Vaughan and Lynda Osborne present a relational matrix model for supervision, that includes clinical, coaching and organisational settings.
Anthony Jones’ exploration of ways to engage with clients around their patterns in relationship represents an example of practice based research that also includes reflection on the therapeutic relationship. Leanne O’Shea also addresses the value of reflection, in this case through the process of writing, and offers support for members and others who may be interested in participating in writing groups or workshops.
Happy reading, and please consider how you could contribute your ideas and experiences to the community.
