Understanding Person-Centred Counselling: A Personal Journey by Christine Brown
This book provides a key introduction to the theory, concepts and practice of the person-centred approach, through the lens of the practitioner's experience and personal development.
Writing as someone who has been through real life challenges and has developed and learned as a result, the author's strikingly personal style not only helps to contextualise complex and nuanced theory, but makes this a truly unique book about real person-centred practice and experience. From Roger's early philosophy through to the current developments and controversies in the field, the author uses personal testimonies, exercises and reflection points to make challenging concepts and practice issues accessible for the novice reader. What results is an informative and fascinating read for all those training and interested in the person-centred approach.
