Description - Person-Centred Therapy in Focus by Paul Wilkins
Person Centred Therapy provides a much-needed exploration of the criticisms leveled against one of the most widespread forms of therapeutic practice. Characterized by its critics as theoretically "light", culturally biased and limited in application, until now the person-centred approach has had comparatively little written in its defence. Person Centred Therapy provides a rigorous and systematic response to the critics, drawing not only on the work of Carl Rogers, but of those central to more recent developments in theory and practice (including Goff Barrett-Lennard, Dave Meams, Jerold Bozarth, Germain Leitauer and Brian Thome). Examining the central tenets of the approach, each chapter sets out concisely the criticisms and then counters these with arguments from the person-centred perspective.
