`This is a book that the person-centered psychotherapy community has been waiting for ... this book opens a creative space in which the ongoing conversation about therapeutic efficacy in times of shrinking resources can be successfully engaged' - Professor Maureen O'Hara, Chair, Department of Psychology, National University, La Jolla, California `A wide-ranging and scholarly book which shows that person-centred therapy is fully alive to the challenges of the twenty-first century and is breaking new ground both clinically and theoretically' - Professor Brian Thorne, Emeritus Professor of Counselling, University of East Anglia "Likely to be of interest to anyone involved in counselling" - Times Higher Educaton Magazine, May 2009 Can the person-centred approach work in time-limited psychotherapy and counselling? This is a question that many practitioners grapple with as demand for brief therapy increases - particularly in the public sector. Brief Person-Centred Therapies is the first book to tackle the subject, bringing together the experience and insights of a leading international team of person-centred therapists. The book examines the philosophical and theoretical 'fit' between the person-centred approach and brief therapy. It also explores the issues which arise when working briefly in a range of different settings, including primary care, higher education, business, and prison, with couples and groups. Brief Person-Centred Therapies is essential reading for all person-centred trainees and for practitioners who want to work in services where brief or time-limited work is required or favoured. Keith Tudor is a UKCP registered psychotherapist, and has a private/independent practice in Sheffield offering therapy, supervision and consultancy.

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.

Eagerly awaited by many counsellors and psychotherapists, this new edition includes an updated preface, new content on recent research and new developments and debates around relational depth, and new case studies. This groundbreaking text goes to the very heart of the therapeutic meeting between therapist and client. Focusing on the concept of 'relational depth', the authors describe a form of encounter in which therapist and client experience profound feelings of contact and engagement with each other, and in which the client has an opportunity to explore whatever is experienced as most fundamental to her or his existence. The book has helped thousands of trainees and practitioners understand how to facilitate a relationally-deep encounter, identify the personal ‘blocks’ that may be encountered along the way, and consider new therapeutic concepts – such as 'holistic listening' – that help them to meet their clients at this level. This classic text remains a source of fresh thinking and stimulating ideas about the therapeutic encounter which is relevant to trainees and practitioners of all orientations.
