" unconditional positive regard
The book is an applied, accessible text, providing a dialogue between the psychological basis of person-centred therapy and its application within real world. It shows how the person-centred approach relates to others within counselling psychology and to contemporary practices in mental health generally. It also gives guidance to readers on how to research, train and work as a person-centred practitioner.
As well as psychology students, it will be of interest to those from other disciplines, counselling trainees, those within the caring professions, and person-centred therapists from a non-psychological background.
