Isadore From (†) – New York Institute for Gestalt Therapy (USA)

Of the original circle of founders of Gestalt therapy, Isadore From was a main theorizer. Mr. From had been one of the earliest patients of Dr. Perls in the late 1940’s. He was a founding member and Fellow of the New York Institute For Gestalt Therapy for over forty years. He conducted training seminars throughout the United States and Europe and was importantly responsible for training many leading Gestalt Therapists. In so doing he made a unique contribution, especially through his emphasis on the theory of Gestalt Therapy as presented in Gestalt Therapy (Perls, Hefferline and Goodman, Volume II). He fostered an attitude of scholarship and sharp attention to detail in language and practice, and in his wit, charm and grace illuminated the theory, practice and spirit of Gestalt Therapy.
