Suitable for Diploma, Masters and Undergraduate level counselling students and practitioners of humanistic counselling and psychotherapy. This book demonstrates that person-centred theory has real depth in its ability to address. The book demonstrates that person-centred theory has real depth in its ability to address the distress of challenging client groups. Case studies show how mature practitioners engage with a range of issues in psychopathology: eating disorders, post-natal and maternal distress, childhood sexual abuse, long-term depression and its existential components, issues of spirituality, psychotic functioning and loss of psychological contact. There is a focus on the first-person voice of three clients and reflections on training by a clinical psychologist. Two case studies look at the political and social aspects of therapy. There is an analysis of a previously unpublished interview with Gina by Carl Rogers, a paper on models for understanding hallucinations, and a chapter on assessment instruments which are congruent with person-centred practice.This book builds bridges between counselling theory and practice, as well as between person-centred therapy and the new and important discipline of positive psychology.
