Dr Robert G Lee

Robert G. Lee, PhD, a psychologist in private practice in Newton, Massachusetts, USA, has written extensively and presented widely on shame and belonging as regulator processes of the relational field.  He applies his intersubjective, constructivist insights to a wide range of clinical populations, including working with individuals, couples, families, children and adolescents, as well as to the topics of self process, development, field theory, ethics, culture, gender, neurobiology, chronic illness, and trauma.

Robert is co-editor of The Voice of Shame: Silence and Connection in Psychotherapy. (Jossey-Bass, 1996).  His collected work, The Values of Connection: A Relational Approach to Ethics (GestaltPress/The Analytic Press, 2004), explores the values of connection that emerge from the Gestalt model and how they provide an ethical basis for working and interacting with others, offering field solutions for modern problems. And his collected work, The Secret Language of Intimacy (GestaltPress/Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2008), explores the hidden elements in couple interactions from a variety of cultural perspectives.  Robert’s current project is Evolution of Gestalt II: Relational Child, Relational Brain (GestaltPress/Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, in press).  He is an editor of GestaltPress, a member of the faculty of the Gestalt Institute of Cleveland, and a visiting faculty member of Gestalt Training programs world wide.
