The following two book chapters (available as free pdf downloads on my new Consciousness and Culture website) are especially useful because they provide a broad overview of methods and approaches in a manner that is also precise and specific. (You have to click the title of each on two separate pages to get it to come up.)

Kim, Jungkyu and Victor Daniels. "Chapter Ten: Experimental Freedom." In Brownell, Philip, ed., Handbook for Theory, Research, and Practice in Gestalt Therapy. Newcastle: Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2008.

Daniels, Victor. "Chapter Twelve: Dimensions of Dialogues: Their Forms and Uses." In Bloom, Dan and Philip Brownell, eds: Continuity and Change--Gestalt Therapy Now. Newcastle Upon Tyle: Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2011.

Below: Articles in Gestalt! -- An Online Journal

The journal recently stopped publishing and all articles published in it have been taken down. Most of them will be published in hardcopy in the near future by Cambridge Scholars Publishing (together with many articles by other authors.) I am finding and collecting them, and in the near future will post them here as pdf downloads, hopefully in both English and Spanish.
