The Person Centred Approach to counselling and psychotherapy has had an enormous impact on professional practice in the talking therapies since its early inception and is now recognised world-wide. The founder of the Person-Centred Approach, Carl Rogers, and colleagues pioneered ground-breaking research methodologies, and recent decades have witnessed an extraordinary explosion of new research efforts, new theoretical premises, new developments of practice, increased attention to clinical work related to psychopathological conditions and a new wave of contemporary literature.

This book charts the origins and developments of the Person-Centred approach up to the present, and moves on to explore the cutting edge of the work in its application to different and diverse groups within society. The volume also considers a new influence in psychology; that of multiculturalism, as well as the newly emerging research in neuroscience. The Person Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy Handbook is an important resource, offering you a comprehensive view of the subject from its earliest days to the most up to date thinking on the theory, research and practice of the PCA within a wide variety of circumstances and settings.
