The term "Gestalt" was coined by Graf Christian von Ehrenfels. His ideas influenced the trio of theorists.

The Complete Guide to Not Giving a Fuck

Not the person whole and alone, nor the relationship, but the relation between parts of person(s) is held as a central element that promotes both personal and social organization and disorganization. Personality is viewed as both an agency and a construction, along with its development and psychopathology, as the model is accompanied by specific methods of assessment and therapy, addressing each of the personality dimensions.
