Overview

The Person-Centred Approach to Therapeutic Change / Edition 1

McMillan (Staffordshire U.) explores the theory and practice of person-centered counseling, with particular reference to the notion of change and how and why it occurs during the process of counseling. After a discussion of the person in person-centered counseling, chapters examine the change process within the client, the nature of the self-concept, and external value judgements and conditions of worth that contribute to the self-concept, and explain how to facilitate self-acceptance in clients and how to create a transcendental bond between client and counselor.
