Between person and person toward a dialogical psychotherapy
Between Person and Person: Toward a Dialogical
Publisher : The Gestalt Journal Press
Release Date : 2012-02-24
The publication of Richard Hycner’s long-awaited book BETWEEN PERSON AND PERSON:
TOWARD A DIALOGICAL PSYCHOTHERAPY marks a major stride forward in the maturing of the
movement of dialogical psychotherapy. By dialogical psychotherapy we mean a therapy which is
centered on the meeting between the therapist and his or her client or family as the central healing
mode, whatever analysis, role playing, or other therapeutic techniques or activities may also enter in.
It is more of an approach than a school of psychotherapy because it belongs to no one school and
has had its representatives and pioneers in many major schools of psychotherapy.
-- From the Preface by Maurice Friedman
AUTHOR ---Richard Hycner is the co-author with Lynne Jacobs of THE HEALING RELATIONSHIP
IN GESTALT THERAPY (1995, Gestalt Journal Press) and co-editor, with Jacobs of RELATIONAL
APPROACHES IN GESTALT THERAPY (2010 Taylor & Francis). Hycner has been a
psychotherapist for thirty five years and is a licensed Clinical Psychologist in California. He and
Lynne were described by Erving and Miriam Polster as bringing richness, clarification and thoughtful
perspective to the continuing renewal of Gestalt therapy.
PREFACE -- Maurice Friedman is professor emeritus of religious studies, philosophy, and
comparative literature at San Diego State University. He is the author of MARTIN BUBER: THE LIFE
OF DIALOGUE, which Buber himself called "the classic study of my thought," and MARTIN BUBER'S
LIFE AND WORK, which won the National Jewish Book Award in 1985. He is the Co-Director of the
Institute for Dialogical Psychotherapy in San Diego.
