This new edition of a highly successful text offers a wide-ranging, comprehensive introduction to the key concepts of contemporary person-centred therapy, exploring both theoretical development and their application to practice. Written by leading international experts, it is an indispensable resource for those studying and working in the area.
Building on the success of the first edition, this substantially revised and extended new edition is set to remain the most in-depth and wide-ranging book available on person-centred psychotherapy and counselling.
The book is thoroughly updated to reflect the latest trends in theory and practice:
- It extends its coverage of professional settings and applications, including brand new chapters on children, older people, arts-based therapies, addiction and bereavement.
- It engages systematically with urgent contemporary issues, such as evidence-based practice, political and medical discourses, and theoretical integration.
- It uses case illustrations, therapist-client dialogues, points of reflection and further resources to bring person-centred therapy to life for the reader, in a user-friendly way.
- It includes contributions by an increasingly extensive group of writers, thinkers, teachers and practitioners.
