`A wide-ranging and scholarly book which shows that person-centred therapy is fully alive to the challenges of the 21st century and is breaking new ground both clinically and theoretically. It demolishes convincingly and authoritatively the common criticisms that the approach can only serve an articulate middle-class and is ill-suited to brief and focused work' - Professor Brian Thorne, Emeritus Professor of Counselling, University of East Anglia
Very comprehensive information that helps to consider the short-term benefits of applying Person-Centred Therapy in a world where it is believed that only CBT can be used briefly
Excellent resource. Essential reading for Person Centred therapists and trainees alike. The answer to that frequent comment - "but PCA is not relevant in today's world". This is yet more proof that it is!
A useful text that provides a framing of what many consider an open ended or long term modality, into a time focussed/brief way of working. It offers solutions to the challenges of working this way, and is clearly presented. There are chapters on contextualised practice that allow the reader to relate to actual practice.
Dear SAGE, I have found this book very concise and informative. It provides an economical context to the advent of brief therapies and provides informative perspectives on the construct of time. It conveys realistically the notion that time itself is not the issue, but how it can be most effectively utilised to provide quality in therapeutic practice.
Some useful articles by a range of writers for person=-centred counsellors facing the challenges of brief work.
An informative guide to using the Person Centred Approach in a time limited way. A book that I believe will become more and more relevant, as practitioners are progressively required to work in a time limited way.
A text for the new ages
it serves the purpose but it better
An excellent, much needed book which demonstrates Person centred does not have to be a long process. Brilliant.
In language easily accessible and appropriate for undergraduate students, I found the book engaging. Discussion regarding the efficacy of Person Centred Counselling used in time limited ways is wholly relevant and current in today's climate.
Adopted for module on time-limited and brief therapy
A slim volume, but a challenging read.
This timely book gives, as the title suggests, a thorough account of contemporary thinking in this area of counselling.
