BARONCELLI, Lauane. Adolescence: a singular and field-related phenomena. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2012, vol.18, n.2, pp. 188-196. ISSN 1809-6867.

The developmental period called adolescence has been often conceived, both in the scientific literature about the subject as well as in common sense, from a stereotyped and generalizing point of view. Historical and concrete conditions are, in this perspective, conceived as natural features of adolescence and the period is taken as a set of predictable characteristics common to all adolescents. In this paper, I analyze why and how the Gestalt Approach refutes this perspective. In the literature on adolescence, these issues have been analyzed on the perspective of the Socio-historical Psychology. As such, and also because of the affinities between this perspective with Gestalt-therapy in regard to the relationship between individual and context, the paper begins with a brief discussion about the socio-historical outlook on adolescence. Following, it is analyzed how Gestalt-therapy, according to its most elementary theoretical premises - foremost among them, the Kurt Lewin's Field theory - resonates and, at the same time, provides new nuances to the socio-historical critique, conceiving adolescence as a singular and field-related phenomenon.
