Gestalt Group Dreamwork Demonstrations in Taiwan
Coven, Arnold B.
Journal for Specialists in Group Work, v29 n2 p175-184 Jun 2004
The application of Gestalt dreamwork was explored with counselor education students and professors at two Taiwan universities. The literature indicates Asians are reluctant to disclose personal matters or to display emotions. Contrary to expectations, the Taiwanese participants readily enacted roles, were personally open, and expressed intense feelings. Examples of dreamwork using Gestalt techniques are specifically illustrated. The fostering of group therapeutic factors and group process are highlighted. Implications for group counseling with a diverse cultural group are discussed.
