'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'--Provided by publisher.
Edited By Mick Cooper, Maureen O'Hara, Peter F. Schmid and Arthur Bohart
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
