Overview

"The book breaks new ground in presenting the authors' reworking of Carl Rogers' theory of the Self, an innovation which has been years in the making and has implications for both theory and practice. Central to the book are two chapters which describe how the Self is constructed as a collection of different parts or 'configuration'. Using strong examples chosen from their own practice, Mearns and Thorne show how this theory contributes directly to the therapist's understanding and interactions with clients." Person-Centred Therapy Today represents a significant contribution to the development of the person-centred approach. It will be essential reading for teachers and students of counselling and psychology who wish to keep their knowledge of the approach fully up-to-date and by all who consider themselves to be person-centred in their approach to helping clients.
