The Handbook of Person-Centred Psychotherapy and Counselling

Mick Cooper, Maureen O'Hara, Peter Schmid, Art Bohart

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Building on the success of the first edition, this substantially revised and extended new edition is set to remain the most in-depth and wide-ranging book available on person-centred psychotherapy and counselling.

The book is thoroughly updated to reflect the latest trends in theory and practice:

• It extends its coverage of professional settings and applications, including brand new chapters on children, older people, arts-based therapies, addiction and bereavement.

• It engages systematically with urgent contemporary issues, such as evidence-based practice, political and medical discourses, and theoretical integration.

• It uses case illustrations, therapist-client dialogues, points of reflection and further resources to bring person-centred therapy to life for the reader, in a user-friendly way.

• It includes contributions by an increasingly extensive group of writers, thinkers, teachers and practitioners.
