There is no equivalent for the word, “Gestalt” in English that fits better than it’s German equivalent. Gestalt is commonly translated as, “form” or “shape”.
Gestalt Psychology is the study of psychological perception of the whole event, situation, person, problem etc.
Perception is how we view the world through our own eyes. Our perception may change as we grow older. For example our world view will change after a traumatic event. Also, important to note that not everyone will percieve the same event in the same way.
I’m a psychologist in guerilla training… My life is a beautifully chaotic mess, I think I shall start writing about it.
