implosion (Gestalt)

Perls identifies four main psychological 'layers': the surface layer of games (conventional social roles), the implosive layer (which leads to the impasse), the explosive layer of emotions and the deep, authentic layer. Implosion is paralysis resulting from internal tension between two opposing forces.
