In einem wachstums- und entwicklungsfördernden psychologischen Klima können diese konstruktiven Potentiale freigesetzt werden.

Providing insights into his life and an explanation of his major theoretical ideas, this book offers an introduction for those practitioners and students of the person-centred approach.
Dieses Buch ist nach den Worten des Verfassers Ausdruck seiner Überzeugung, daß die Beratung ein erlernbarer, überschaubarer und verstehbarer Prozeß ist, ein Prozeß, der vermittelt, überprüft, verfeinert und verbessert werden kann. Es soll angehende wie erfahrene Berater und Therapeuten zu weiterer Erforschung von Theorie und Praxis anregen. Rogers ist überzeugt, daß wir eher zu wenig als zuviel Vertrauen in die Wachstumsmöglichkeiten des Individuums haben, und er möchte mit seinem Buch dazu beitragen, die im Individuum beschlossenen Wachstums- und Entwicklungspotentiale zu erkunden und zu fördern. Das Buch ist" im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes ein praktisches Buch, geschrieben von einem Mann, der über langjährige und erfolgreiche Erfahrung als Berater und Psychotherapeut verfügt."Leonard Carmichael in seinem Vorwort.
»In meinen Beziehungen zu Menschen habe ich herausgefunden, daß es auf lange Sicht nicht hilft, so zu tun, als wäre ich jemand, der ich nicht bin. - Ich habe es als höchst lohnend empfunden, einen anderen Menschen akzeptieren zu können.«

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.
Many counselling courses have a strong research element built into the modules and students are expected to gain a thorough understanding of research issues early on in their studies. This accessible and practical textbook will demystify research and make it relevant to counselling practice. There are sections on linking clinical practice to research, developing 'curiosity' and engaging with the data. The book uses clinical practice as a basis for understanding research, and makes connections between the activity of therapy and the research process.

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.
