Eugene Gendlin

The significance of the immediate physical experience and self-expression, i.e., how someone shows themselves and speaks, has been (apart from Fritz Perls) most clearly recognised by Eugene T. Gendlin <a href=”” target=”_blank”>Eugene Gendlin</a>. His ‘Focusing’ approach moves the systematic support of the client’s inner perception processes into the foreground of counselling activity. His philosophical derivations (Heidegger and Husserl), as well as his consistent way of thinking processually, makes him an early pioneer of a psychology which is orientated towards active effectiveness factors. His book “A Process Model”, which is difficult to understand, is inspiring for meta-theoretical analysis of change processes, because it represents one of the very few attempts to make temporal-philosophical considerations an integrative basis of theory.
