Research On Person-Centred-Experiential Psychotherapy and Counselling: Summary of the Main Findings

The first edition of this book vigorously challenged mainstream perceptions of the person-centred approach by presenting detailed accounts of the application of person-centred theory, ethics and practice when working with people experiencing severe psychological distress within a range of contexts. In this substantially revised, expanded and updated second edition, Stephen Joseph and his contributing authors have paid close attention to maintaining its relevance as an inspiring, accessible and research-aware resource, not only for those already committed to this approach but also for those who are seeking an alternative to the dominant medical model. It is essential reading for practitioners and students in the counselling and psychotherapy arena, and those working in the wider mental health field. Contributors from across the fields of research, policy-making and practice discuss the tensions between the person-centred approach and the dominant medical model. Thoroughly updated to reflect the latest trends in theory and practice, this this substantially revised and extended edition is the most in-depth and wide-ranging textbook available on person-centred psychotherapy and counselling. Divided into four parts, it examines the theoretical, philosophical and historical foundations of the person-centred approach; the fundamental principles of person-centred practice and applications of person-centred practice; how person-centred conceptualisations and practices can be applied to groups of clients who bring particular issues to therapy; and, finally, professional issues for person-centred therapists, such as ethics, supervision and training. This is a ground-breaking book for the whole future of person-centred theory and practice ... I strongly recommend this book. Val Simanowitz, Counsellor & Supervisor. Therapy Today, December 2005.They offer personal testament to the challenges of working in a person-centred way within mainstream contexts, and review the vibrant political and professional divisions and arguments that continue to inform thinking and practice today. They give examples of how the person-centred approach is being applied successfully in practice (and evaluated). They demonstrate how Rogers’ theories of personality and the actualising process are able to provide a model of human functioning that is relevant not just to counselling but to all mental health professions, and to the social sciences. PETER SCHMID Univ.Doz. HSProf. Mag. Dr., works at the University of Graz, the Sigmund Freud University and the Institute for Person-Centered Studies in Vienna, Austria. Peter works as a psychotherapist and is co-editor of the international journals Person-Centered and Experiential Psychotherapies and PERSON. As we seem to slip more into a culture that pathogises every aspect of human experience, this book is not only welcome but essential... This is an incredibly invaluable handbook that helps us question what increasingly seems to be the unquestionable.’
