Synopsis

The Handbook of Person-Centred Psychotherapy and Counselling by Mick Cooper, Maureen O'Hara, Peter F. Schmid

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. Written by a diverse range of expert contributors, unified by a more relational, ethics-based reading of person-centred theory and practice, this is a comprehensive, cutting-edge resource for students on all advanced level person-centred courses, as well as for a wide range of professional practitioners in the field.

Reviews

Praise for the first edition: 'A Who's Who of contemporary person-centred thinkers and practitioners. This handbook will be the standard reference work in the area.' - William B. Stiles, Professor of Clinical Psychology, Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, USA 'So comprehensive is this handbook, that if students of the person-centred approach could only afford to buy themselves one book, then they would do well to make it this one.' - Therapy Today 'This is a truly exhilarating, inspiring and provocative volume.' - Person-Centred Quarterly
