This paper describes Perls’s revision of Freud’s technique of free association as part of a tradition that started with Breuer and Freud, continued with Ferenczi and the Berlin character analysts, and then led to their student Fritz Perls. In this context, Perls’s "dramatizing techniques" that the authors calls "the third" in Gestalt therapy, are seen as further developments of Ferenczi’s work with "forced fantasies".
Keywords: Concentration, free association, gestalt therapy, character analysis, Ferenczi, history of psychotherapy.
