Overview

This book brings together up-to-date contributions to the development of person-centred theory and practice from leading European practitioners.

The book makes available for the first time in English some of the most significant theoretical ideas and practical applications of a distinguished group of contributors at the cutting edge of the approach. It also gives a valuable insight into a vibrant professional network whose members are making a significant impact on the European world of counselling and psychotherapy. Covering a wide range of person-centred issues, the book provides unique and challenging material that will act as a springboard for debate at many levels between experienced practitioners, supervisors, trainers and trainees.

The diverse contributions reflect the vitality and originality of person-centred therapists throughout the European continent and the book will be of immense heuristic value as well as practical relevance.
