2. Gestaltdrama as an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Approach

Abstract

The following text is an overview study which defines the basic phenomena and effective factors of Gestalt drama and outlines some of the researches carried out in this area by the author during recent years. Gestalt drama is the name of a specific psychotherapeutic approach applied by the author in his practice, which combines Gestalt therapy with expressive approaches (especially with dramatherapy, theatrotherapy and fairytale-therapy). Linking Gestalt therapy and expressive techniques results in a specific psychotherapeutic approach whose versatility and holistic conception makes it suitable not only for psychotherapy but also for self-development of people with special needs, as it has the potential to meet the higher psychological needs even when the lower needs are not sufficiently saturated. The article further presents the interpretation of the partial results of research focusing on the analysis of integration performance where gestaltdrama techniques have been applied. These performances resulted from one-day dramatherapy workshops with clients suffering from mental retardation and with clients with behavioural disorders. This includes the analysis of differences between dramatical expression within the above target groups.

Optimal Spatial Allocation of Labour Force and Employment Protection Legislation (EPL)

integration – the Eurozone. Labour mobility is especially important in the context of the latter as a traditional mechanism of adjustment to asymmetric economic shocks. Mobility usually absorbs a certain amount of the asymmetric shocks over time. Similarly, movements associated with these shocks have increased because of the euro-monetary integration, and have a direct impact on wages due to such respective adjustments ( Arpaia et al., 2016 ). The latest Eurozone financial crisis is a characteristic long-term macro-economic shock carrying over asymmetric effects. This

2. Artistic Personality in the Light of Socio - Cultural Integration

Abstract

Artistic personality was interpreted in various ways through the ages. The power of creativity, individual perseverance and imaginative force made the artist a special person, different from most people, being equipped with unique, unrepeatable skills. This paper presents some of the most important approaches to the personality of the creator, from the questionable Freudian theory to the psycho-biological approaches of Peckham. Through his works, the artist expresses not only his personal anxieties or emotional ardent feelings but also, reflects a conscious level of the social group, being himself adapted to human values, characteristic of the era and society to which he belongs. Maybe, sometimes, wrong regarded as deviant personalities or too much exposed to excesses, artists remain, undoubtedly, brave in Creativity, in the cultural and social original development process. Their integration in this ensemble completes the picture we have about development and social evolution, and gives us access to more elevated human values.

Foreign Trade of the Republic of Belarus in the International Business Environment

1 Introduction The importance of foreign economic activity is steadily increasing in the international business environment, which is characterised by expanding global economic ties, the entry of business entities to external markets, increasing government borrowing in international financial markets, and strengthening integration processes in the world.

; Glaeser and Gyourko, 2005 ), although there are exceptions ( Deilmann et al., 2009 ; Glock and Häussermann, 2004 ; Wilhelmsson et al., 2011 ). The objective of the current study was to assess attitudes in Portugal regarding the integration of population decrease and housing development in local spatial planning strategies, taking into account that shrinking areas frequently have a housing surplus. We hoped that a content analysis would reveal whether, and how, local spatial planning practice (namely urban and expansion areas for housing) aligned with the population
