Kellogg has clearly done a lot of research into the origins of Chairwork and the various uses and different interpretations of the technique. . . .For practitioners who are interested in the Chairwork technique and want to expand their range of using this method, they may find Kellogg's book a useful source as there is a wide and varied number of script examples and a chapter included near the end of the book on ways of developing the technique to take the work to a deeper level. * British Gestalt Journal *
A transformational book! Research will, eventually, establish the effectiveness of this technique, and make it one of the key techniques used by integrative psychotherapists with many different kinds of clients. Chairwork offers clients a way to get in touch with powerful, hidden conflicting thoughts and feelings. Whether therapists see themselves as primarily cognitive or psychodynamic or humanistic or existential, Scott Kellogg's wonderfully written book offers an illuminating entry into Chairwork, providing many vivid case examples to illustrate his points. With adequate training and experience, Chairwork will greatly enhance any therapist's repertoire of effective techniques. -- F. Michler Bishop, PhD, The Albert Ellis Institute
In this fascinating book, Scott Kellogg demonstrates how psychotherapy can be artwork and effective at the same time. In a very enriching way he reminds us about the fundamental nature of polarities in our lives and shows us how we, through sophisticated Chairwork, can deal creatively with them to promote healing and change. The book invites us to see psychotherapy as a living enterprise and to understand the deep existential meaning of polarities. It revitalizes and develops the art of Chairwork with elegant clarity. It transforms our ways of looking at chairs as beholders of perspectives. -- Jan Tonnesvang, PhD, Aarhus University
Scott Kellogg's book Transformational Chairwork: Using Psychotherapeutic Dialogues in Clinical Practice is highly instructive, and is certain to become the standard in helping therapists to use a highly experiential and effective approach known as 'empty chair.' Indeed, its rich and instructive dialogues may transform both therapists and patients' lives. -- Irismar Reis de Oliveira, MD, PhD, Federal University of Bahia, Brazil
