In 1980, the original Beyond the Hot Seat was published and immediately recognized as a seminal work, providing gestalt group therapists with the first book exclusively devoted to that modality and offering them an expanded vision by linking gestalt principles with those of group dynamics, hence the title. Now, almost thirty years later, we are pleased to offer an updated and thoroughly revised version. In this new edition, will be found six of the most important chapters from the original, augmented by thirteen new chapters from a much more diverse and senior set of contributors. Whereas all the contributors from the original book were Americans, the new version has chapters from outstanding other practitioners from Sweden, England, Australia and New Zealand. Their writings in this book open up new territory and address fundamental issues in a more sophisticated and interrelated way. In the thirty years since the original was published, gestalt group therapists from around the world have had a good deal more connection and dialogue with one another -- sparked in part by the original version published in 1980. We believe that now, once again, gestalt group therapists will be greatly enriched by reading Beyond the Hot Seat Revisited -- which interestingly, is the first book since 1980 that is devoted exclusively to the modality, at least in English.

Continuity and Change: Gestalt Therapy Now describes what is quite possibly the most unique and significant gestalt therapy organization in the world. There are, of course, many other associations of gestalt therapists, but many of them are either much smaller or qualitatively different because they attend to certifying and regulating their members. The Association for the Advancement of Gestalt Therapy (AAGT) does not certify nor regulate; its sole purpose is to advance the theory and practice of gestalt therapy through the associating of its members. This book both highlights the nature of contemporary gestalt therapy and makes known the existence and nature of the AAGT through the lens of its tenth biennial conference, which was held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. In 2010 the AAGT returned to the Unites States for a venue in its biennial conference after having been in Amsterdam in the Netherlands; Vancouver, Canada; and Manchester, England. It’s regional growth had been sustained, and its international scope had become expansive. The 2010 conference, with its theme of continuity and change, was a look at contemporary gestalt therapy, and it also featured a significant and growing dialogue with recognized leaders in other clinical perspectives. The 2010 conference featured many long-time, recognized colleagues from the field of gestalt therapy, including many aging colleagues who trained personally with the founders of gestalt therapy. The conference proceedings were rich and varied. This book includes papers based on pre-conference workshops, and conference presentations and panels. Chapter contributors emerge from the structure of the conference itself, and they include many of the most compelling thinkers and practitioners in the world of contemporary gestalt therapy.

Political leadership has made a comeback. It was studied intensively not only by political scientists but also by political sociologists and psychologists, Sovietologists, political anthropologists, and by scholars in comparative and development studies from the 1940s to the 1970s. Thereafter, the field lost its way with the rise of structuralism, neo-institutionalism, and rational choice approaches to the study of politics, government, and governance. Recently, however, students of politics have returned to studying the role of individual leaders and the exercise of leadership to explain political outcomes. The list of topics is nigh endless: elections, conflict management, public policy, government popularity, development, governance networks, and regional integration. In the media age, leaders are presented and stage-managed—spun—as the solution to almost every social problem. Through the mass media and the Internet, citizens and professional observers follow the rise, impact, and fall of senior political officeholders at closer quarters than ever before. This Handbook encapsulates the resurgence by asking, where are we today? It orders the multidisciplinary field by identifying the distinct and distinctive contributions of the disciplines. It meets the urgent need to take stock. It brings together scholars from around the world, encouraging a comparative perspective, to provide a comprehensive coverage of all the major disciplines, methods, and regions. It showcases both the normative and empirical traditions in political leadership studies, and juxtaposes behavioural, institutional, and interpretive approaches. It covers formal, office-based as well as informal, emergent political leadership, and in both democratic and undemocratic polities.
