RIBEIRO, Walter Ferreira da Rosa. The difficulty of “conversion” to gestalt mentality. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2010, vol.16, n.1, pp. 85-90. ISSN 1809-6867.

The daily contact with the Gestalt community, its brilliance and also limitations have convinced me that to understand the radical ness of the revolutionary Gestalt Therapy’s proposal (revolutionary to the established cultural beliefs and values deep ingrained for centuries in our European Patriarchal Society and so in each of us) - we must begin by having more and better understanding of how much these values and beliefs still govern us. So, to what extent these values and beliefs still constitute our inner motives and, thus, command our daily perceptions, attitudes, opinions, emotions, dreams and actions.

Keywords : Self-preservation; Secular conditioning; Perception; Competitiveness.
