Person Centred Therapy And Cbt

Person Centred Therapy And Cbt

Why do I need to learn about CBT and/or the Person-centred Approach? What can these techniques contribute to my counselling training and practice? This book has some of the answers, showing humanistic, CBT and integrative therapists how to get to grips with each other's approaches. CBT has become more fully present in the therapeutic landscape and therapists from other modalities are increasingly being required to understand or even train in the approach. Responding to this growing pressure for change, Person-centred therapist Roger Casemore joins forces with Jeremy Tudway. Together they show how counsellors can respect and value each other's approaches by more clearly understanding the similarities and differences in theory, philosophy and practice. They clarify how therapists draw upon this knowledge in their practice without betraying the values of their core approach. This book is recommended for anyone studying Person-centred or CBT modules on counselling & psychotherapy courses, or experienced practitioners wishing to adapt their practice for NHS settings. Roger Casemore is currently an Associate Fellow in Lifelong Learning at the University of Warwick and has a private practice as a therapist and supervisor of other therapists, based in Worcester. Jeremy Tudway is a Clinical and Forensic Psychologist and a director of Phoenix Psychological Services, Warwickshire. In addition to this he lectures in CBT at the University of Warwick.

Person Centred Therapy In Focus

Person Centred Therapy In Focus

Person-Centred Therapy in Focus provides a much-needed exploration of the criticisms levelled against one of the most widespread forms of therapeutic practice. Characterized by its critics as theoretically `light', culturally biased and limited in application, until now the person-centred approach has had comparatively little written in its defence. Paul Wilkins provides a rigorous and systematic response to the critics, drawing not only on the work of Carl Rogers, but also of those central to more recent developments in theory and practice (including Goff Barrett-Lennard, Dave Mearns, Jerold Bozarth, Germain Leitauer and Brian Thorne). It traces the epistemological foundations of person-centred therapy and places the approach in its social and political context. Examining the central tenets of the approach, each chapter sets out concisely the criticisms and then counters these with arguments from the person-centred perspective. Chapters cover debates in relation to: - the model of the person - self-actualization - the core conditions - non-directivity - resistance to psychopathology - reflection, and - boundary issues. Person-Centred Therapy in Focus fulfills two important purposes: firstly to answer the criticisms of those who have attacked the person-centred approach and secondly to cultivate a greater critical awareness and understanding within the approach itself. As such it makes a significant contribution to the person-centred literature and provides an excellent resource for use in training.

Person Centred Therapy

Person Centred Therapy

The person-centred approach is one of the most popular, enduring and respected approaches to psychotherapy and counselling. Person-Centred Therapy returns to its original formulations to define it as radically different from other self-oriented therapies. Keith Tudor and Mike Worrall draw on a wealth of experience as practitioners, a deep knowledge of the approach and its history, and a broad and inclusive awareness of other approaches. This significant contribution to the advancement of person-centred therapy: Examines the roots of person-centred thinking in existential, phenomenological and organismic philosophy. Locates the approach in the context of other approaches to psychotherapy and counselling. Shows how recent research in areas such as neuroscience support the philosophical premises of person-centred therapy. Challenges person-centred therapists to examine their practice in the light of the history and philosophical principles of the approach. Person-Centred Therapy offers new and exciting perspectives on the process and practice of therapy, and will encourage person-centred practitioners to think about their work in deeper and more sophisticated ways.

The Mystical Power Of Person Centred Therapy

The Mystical Power Of Person Centred Therapy

Brian Thorne?s latest book is likely to cause something of a furore in the counselling and psychotherapy world and more particularly among person-centred practitioners and pastoral counsellors. ?The Mystical Power of Person-Centred Therapy? takes the later work of Carl Rogers with the utmost seriousness and, as a result, moves into unexpected and perhaps, for some, dangerously controversial terrain. Rogers discovered towards the end of his life that he had greatly underestimated both the mystical quality of the therapeutic process and the power of the person-centred approach to give access to the spiritual dimension of experience. Professor Thorne takes this concept further and explores the implications of regarding person-centred therapy as an essentially spiritual discipline. The outcome is a book which not only provides new and startling challenges for therapists of all orientations but also suggests that the person-centred way of being may have a major contribution to make to the resolution of some of humanity?s seemingly intractable problems. It should appeal not only to therapists but also to clergy and all those concerned with the spiritual evolution of humanity. In the light of the events of September 11th 2001 and their aftermath such a book could not come at a more opportune time.

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.
