Research has been done on the influence of gestalt play therapy on adolescents in divorce situations. The purpose of the study was the use of gestalt play therapy with adolescents in divorce situations, in order to determine its effect on the period of mourning.

Four adolescents in divorce situations were selected by means of purposeful test sampling in the Magisterial District of Bloemfontein. Each adolescent was assisted by means of eight gestalt play therapy sessions to accept the divorce of his parents. By using various forms of play in the therapy sessions, each adolescent’s period of mourning could be addressed.

The exploratory research model has been used which does not require the formulation of a hypothesis. The researcher however recommended that the following hypothesis be tested for future study: “If the adolescent in a divorce situation is subjected to gestalt play therapy his acceptance of the divorce of his parents and the period of mourning could be shortened”.
