Client Centered And Experiential Psychotherapy In The Nineties

Client Centered And Experiential Psychotherapy In The Nineties

This voluminous book of 47 chapters offers a good cross section of what is burgeoing in the field of client-centered and experiential psychotherapy on the threshold of the nineties. it does not represent a single vision but gives the floor to the various suborientations: classics Rogerians; client-centered therapists who favor some form of integration or even eclecticism; experiential psychotherapists for whom Gendlin's focusing approach is a precious way of working; client-centered therapists who look at the therapy process in terms of information-processing; existentially oriented therapists... Remarkable is that - for the first time in the history of client-centered/experiential psychotherapy - the European voice rings through forcefully: more than half of the contributions were written by authors from Western Europe.Several chapters contain reflections on the evolution—past, present, and future—of client-centered/experiential psychotherapy. The intensive research into the process, which had a central place in the initial phase of client-centered therapy, is given here ample attention, with several creative studies and proposals for renewal. In numerous contributions efforts are made to build and further develop a theroy of psychopathology, the client's process, the basic attitudes and task-oriented interventions of the therapist. The chapters dealing with clinical practice typically aim at the description of therapy with specific client populations and paricularly severely disturbed clients. And finally a few fields are introduced which are new or barely explored within the client-centered/experiential approach: working with dreams, health psychology, couple and family therapy.

Person Centred Therapy

Person Centred Therapy

`In this scholarly book, Thorne and Lambers have gathered together significant contributions to the advancement of person-centred theory and practice from leading exponents of the approach in Austria, Belgium, Germany, The Netherlands, Norway and the United Kingdom.... I found the book both stimulating and challenging. The insight it offers into working with "difficult" clients is invaluable and the sections on theory stretched me in my understanding of the approach. I strongly recommend it to anyone from within or without the person-centred tradition who wants to achieve a real understanding of the approach "post Rogers" and get to grips with the vibrancy and vitality of person-centred thought in Europe' - Counselling and Psychotherapy, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy 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.

A Person Centered Approach And The Rogerian Tradition

A Person Centered Approach And The Rogerian Tradition

From the Book: "it is hypothesized that the therapist wants to understand for no other reason but to understand. If the therapist is motivated to understand solely to be a change agent for the client, then the facilitative mechanisms may not be sufficient because a tendency toward unconditional acceptance will not effectively emerge." "the published literature in the 1970s suggests that person-centered therapy (PCT) researchers, rather than pursuing novel avenues of empirical inquiry, devoted substantial time in defending PCT against - what now appear to be - unfounded claims made by a group of social scientists who held significant professional interest in seeing through the dismantling of the person-centered approach." Book Summary: This book is about a person-centered approach to counseling and psychotherapy as developed by the psychologist Carl Rogers (1902-1987) and his colleagues. In addition, this book is also intended to be a handbook on the person-centered approach and the Rogerian tradition for use in academic and non-academic settings alike. Each chapter is briefly summarized below. Chapter 1 ("A Person-Centered Approach and the Structure of Scientific Revolutions") examines the trend of scientific inquiry in psychotherapy research, specifically focusing on events and changes that took place beginning in the 1970s and are argued to have substantially influenced the direction of psychotherapy research in the following decades. In particular, these changes are suggested to have been guided by the choices made by a small but influential group of behavior and psychoanalytic-oriented researchers, which arguably led to changes in the scientific methods used to investigate the effectiveness of psychotherapeutic treatments; and, as will be shown in this chapter, led to the decline and disappearance of Carl Rogers's person-centered approach. This chapter suggests that through a method of allegiance-guided scientific inquiry, the Rogerian tradition was systematically dismantled by a group of social scientists that held considerable professional interests to do so. Chapter 2 ("A Person-Centered Approach to Multicultural Counseling Competence") examines current and historical trends in psychotherapy research and practice with racial/ethnic minority populations. Using psychotherapy evidence from both the latter half of the 20th century and the initial decades of the 21st century, cultural adaptations to previously hypothesized person-centered therapy mechanisms of change are proposed. Chapter 3 ("A Person-Centered Approach to the Treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder") addresses psychotherapy with a person described as possessing a borderline personality disorder (BPD). In particular, a selection of mainstream approaches is reviewed to examine unique and universal aspects of current thinking about this treatment population. Following this review, an expanded analysis of person-centered therapy is offered, examining current research evidence and the mechanisms of change hypothesized to occur in the person-centered treatment of BPD. Chapter 4 ("A Person-Centered Approach to the Treatment of Combat Veterans with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder") examines posttraumatic stress disorder through the lens of military combat trauma that results in a breakdown of a combat veteran's sense of self and the world. In the effective treatment of combat-related posttraumatic stress disorder, a therapist must help the veteran reorganize the self-structure that has become incongruent with his or her precombat-trauma self following his or her return home from war. For the therapist to facilitate a veteran's becoming whole, he or she must be genuinely congruent in the relationship.

A Person Centered Foundation For Counseling And Psychotherapy

A Person Centered Foundation For Counseling And Psychotherapy

The focus of this new edition is on counseling and psychotherapy, and its goals are to renew interest in the person-centered approach in the U.S., make a significant contribution to extending person-centered theory and practice, and promote fruitful dialogue and further development of person-centered theory. The text presents and clarifies the following main topics: the rationale for an eclectic application of person-centered counseling, the rationale and process for reflecting clients' feelings, the importance of theory as the foundation for the counseling process, the importance of values and their influence on the counseling relationship, the modern person- centered counselor's role, the essential characteristics of a person-centered counseling relationship, the group counseling movement and the person-centered perspective, the application of person-centeredness through play therapy, the difficulties and opportunities surrounding evaluation, a person-centered perspective on the process of counselor education, and therapeutic opportunities available outside the field of counseling. These discussions serve as a transition from traditional interpretation of personcentered to an eclectic application of the viewpoint. The process of person-centered counseling has evolved over the years and this comprehensive book contributes to that evolution. It represents the status of person-centered counseling while also identifying ideas which can influence its future.

Process Work In Person Centred Therapy

Process Work In Person Centred Therapy

This unique and important book breaks new ground in the theory and practice of person-centred psychotherapy by focusing on the issue of process. Process belongs to both client and counsellor. Worsley conceptualises process in relation to the core principles of the person-centred approach but also to the humanistic and phenomenological roots of person-centred therapy. Combining academic rigour with the wisdom of an experienced clinical practitioner, he opens up a more inclusive and integrative way of being with clients that nonetheless chimes with classical person-centred principles. The book features: • Activities and vivid case studies to illustrate and expand on the theoretical points being developed, allowing the reader to see easily how these might apply to practice. • Engagement with theoretical approaches such as transactional analysis and Gestalt, as well as discussion of philosophy, spirituality and psychopathology. • New discussion of the processes involved in mental illness, drawing on the work of Prouty and Warner to understand the client's world of experiencing. • New material on the plural self and configurations of the self. This is a book aimed principally at university students enrolled on courses in person-centred, humanistic, existential and integrative counselling and psychotherapy. It will also appeal to experienced practitioners wanting to refresh and deepen their understanding. RICHARD WORSLEY is a person-centred therapist, supervisor and trainer at the University of Warwick, UK. Formerly Director of the Diploma in Humanistic Counselling at Tile Hill MA26, Coventry, he also has long experience working as an Anglican Priest. He is co-editor with Stephen Joseph of Person-Centred Psychopathology: A Positive Psychology of Mental Health.
