Person-centred and Experiential Therapies
Contemporary Approaches and Issues in Practice

Edited by:

November 2015 | 176 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

An essential new guide for any person-centred trainee or practitioner, this book explores some of the key contemporary counselling and psychotherapy approaches that have developed from classical client-centred therapy.  Part One discusses five approaches including Classic Client-Centred Therapy; Relational and Dialogical Person-Centred Therapy; Focusing-Oriented Therapy; Experiential Therapy; Emotion Focussed Therapy and Person-Centred Expressive therapy.

Each approach is introduced, considered in terms of its history, development, current context and relevant research, as well as exemplified through a range of inspiring vignettes. Part Two brings readers up-to-date with recent developments in the application of person-centred practice, including creative approaches, transcultural counselling, work with people who’ve experienced trauma as well as those who are experiencing limitations to their ability.

Written by leading UK-based and international authors, this authoritative and thought-provoking book is a must read for anyone keen to understand the many approaches of person-centred therapy.

Person-Centred Approach to Transcultural Issues in Therapy

This is a unique contemporary take on the variety of person-centred experiential practice (in the UK) with excellent brief case examples that bring individual practice to life - not quite '100% essential' to our course, but certainly very highly recommended!

I believe Carl Rogers would really love the fact that his original theories are not only being kept alive but advanced and extended. I particularly enjoyed chapters by Lago, Cox, Wilkins and Walshaw. A book for those students who have more than beginning understandings and are interested in exploring the range and diversity that the person-centred approach can encompass.
