Overview

Dr. Combs updates his groundbreaking Field Theory of personality. This model grows out of Carl Rogers' ideas on client-centered therapy and has long been a major influence on theories of psychotherapy and personality within the humanistic and phenomonlogical traditions. Here Dr. Combs ties field psychology to the paradigm shifts in biophysical sciences, and so provides a unifying frame of reference for all branches of psychology. His concise approach to the topic makes this book of practical interest to students, clinical psychologists and counselors, as well as academics teaching upper-level or graduate courses in personality and on therapeutic techniques.

"...explores such topics as discovering the self, meaning and the self, time and opportunity, goals and values, human capacities, learning and change, self actualization and health, and more."

What People Are Saying

David Cain
Rare indeed is a book that I would recommend to all psychologists, educators and psychotherapists...[the book] is stunning in its wisdom, breadth of scholarship and humanity. He has integrated, in a reasonable and compelling manner, the domains of perception, motivation, learning, personality development, the self, the creation of personal meaning and psycho pathology. Combs makes a powerful case for the role of self as a core mediator of perception and behavior. (David J. Cain, PhD, Director of Counseling and Psychological Services, United States International University, San Diego)
Franz Epting
...As we all prepare to enter the twenty-first century, this book will provide a valuable guide to both the theoretician and practitioner in psychological science. (Franz B. Epting, Professor of Psychology, University of Florida, Gainesville)
