This article examines several central aspects of Gestalt work that have potential for helping male clients. The authors explain that although a search for literature on Gestalt counseling with men produced no results, Gestalt approaches have much to offer clinicians working with men. Theoretical concepts and interventions are addressed and illustrated with case examples of Gestalt work with male clients. Research implications are discussed.
