Second Edition

February 2011 | 144 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Person-Centred Counselling in a Nutshell is a short, accessible guide to one of the most popular approaches to counselling.

Using examples drawn from practice, Roger Casemore outlines, in a clear, jargon-free style, the main principles of the person-centred approach, using the core therapeutic conditions:

- congruence

- unconditional regard

- empathy

This revised and updated second edition includes new material on professional issues, on the use of person-centred counselling in short-term therapy, and on the wider application of the person-centred approach in other settings.

Providing a concise introduction to the theory and practice of person-centred counselling, Person-Centred Counselling in a Nutshell is the ideal place to start for anyone reading about the approach for the first time.
