Overview

This resource comprises a compendium of the most recent research results and practice techniques in humanistic psychotherapy. Editors Cain (International U. Counseling Center) and Seeman (consultant and therapist) provide an overview of the history, characteristics, and evolution of the field; and leading experts discuss various therapeutic approaches including client-centered, Gestalt, existential, and experiential. In offering guidelines for practice and introduce innovative methods, they focus upon empirical evidence from psychotherapeutic practice that demonstrate the importance of empathy on the part of the therapist. They also stress the effectiveness of these therapies in working with client emotion and enabling those with severe disabilities to progress.
