The Handbook of Person-Centred Psychotherapy and Counselling Summary

The Handbook of Person-Centred Psychotherapy and Counselling by Mick Cooper

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. New to this Edition: - A new, introductory chapter looking at contemporary challenges and opportunities for growth for the person-centred world - Nine further new chapters, including work with children and young people, older clients, arts-based therapies, addiction and bereavement, spiritual dimensions, contact and perception, working integratively, global and political implications - Increased use of text learning features to make the chapters more accessible and engaging - A greater focus on actual practice, with more case studies and examples of therapist-client dialogues Increased reference to research - A general updating of all chapters to include all relevant references
