'..a wonderfully fresh take on some of the old nuggets of PC theory as well as developing the approach into newer areas. The authors are to be very warmly congratulated for this major new contribution to both British and international writing on and from within the PCA.' - Ian Carty, Department of Social, Community& Health Studies, University of Hertfordshire
'There is a lot of material being published on the person-centred approach, and it is heartening to discover in this title a focus on the application of the person-centred approach to a variety of settings and relationships.' - Richard Bryant-Jefferies, Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal
'This is an impressive and very wide ranging introduction to the Person Centred Approach. It not only introduces the approach but adds new dimensions to the theory and new extensions of it into practice, reaching well beyond the counselling room walls.' - www.counsellingresource.com

As such, the authors demonstrate how this 'third force' in humanistic therapy (following the 'first force' of the psychodynamic tradition and the 'second force' of the behaviouralist tradition) came into being. To my mind this is far more engaging than simply setting out the essential technical characteristics of the approach (which the authors also do), as it explains the rationale by which these characteristics were established, and so enables the reader to make his or her own judgement about the validity of the underlying assumptions.
This book represents an ideal primer, for both therapist and client (or should that be 'person'?).
