BORIS, Georges Daniel Janja Bloc. Gestalt approaches to groups: a phenomenolical proposal of cooperation's facilitation. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2013, vol.13, n.3, pp. 1124-1158. ISSN 1808-4281.

Gestalt approach uses phenomenological method to understand the phenomena it investigates, adopting the description of the group occurrences as its main resource in its work with life experience groups. This text intends to present a phenomenological proposal of facilitating cooperation as one of the main qualities of the use of gestalt therapy in existential groups. In this sense, the text describes the evolution of group practices until the development of the gestalt approach to groups, emphasizing their phases, features, the commonly emerging themes and the functions of life experience group's facilitator. Finally, the text highlights the essential conditions for the facilitation of cooperative processes in gestalt approach to groups.

Keywords : Gestalt approach to groups; Phenomenological Method; Group Facilitation; Cooperation.
