SILVA, Thatiana Caputo Domingues da; BAPTISTA, Camilla Santos  e  ALVIM, Mônica Botelho. Contact nowadays: a clinical look of gestalt therapy. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2015, vol.21, n.2, pp. 193-201. ISSN 1809-6867.

This article was motivated by the complaints brought from the clients to our clinic and search from there an understanding about the existence in the contemporary world and how we experience the contact with each other today. For this, we make a literature review discussing what Gestalt Therapy think about relationships and men. Furthermore, we articulate that vision with what we see today in our society through a dialogue with authors who discuss issues of contemporaneity. From our studies we realized that the sufferings we encounter speaks about difficulties in the establishment of dialogue, intimacy and surrender, which configures itself to the theory of Gestalt Therapy as interruptions in the dynamics of the contact, named as the steps of: contact and final contact. We conclude that these dimensions needed for the contact, to establish a full relationship with others, seem not to be finding place in our society, which can be linked to an increasing loss of the experience space. This is expressed in the difficulty of living dimensions essential to the establishment of experience, such as respite and surrender, openness and availability, the risk implicit in relationships with others.
