I am a tutor on a so-called "integrative counselling course" and I thoroughly endorse the idea that Carl Rogers would have welcomed this honesty and new interpretatation of his model. Your SAGE book is indeed a bible and I have repeatedly recommended it to the students' - lecturer, YouTube `For students and those new to person-centred counselling, there is a clear exposition of person-centred theory. For experienced practitioners, there are new and challenging theoretical developments within the person-centred approach. If new to counselling, this is a 'must have'. If wondering whether to invest in this edition when there is a already a copy of the earlier one on the shelf, the challenge of the new theoretical material is persuasive, but if that is not enough, then the updated practice guidance, the practical questions and answers, and the comprehensive references must make this new edition another bestseller' - Therapy Today ---------------------------------------------------------- It is now almost twenty years since the first edition of Person-Centred Counselling in Action appeared. In that time this SAGE bestseller has maintained enormous popularity with trainees and practitioners and has achieved world-wide acclaim. This substantially revised Third Edition provides an excellent introduction to the theory and practice of person-centred counselling while incorporating exciting new developments in the approach. Dave Mearns and Brian Thorne have preserved the compelling and accessible style of its predecessors. At the same time they provoke reflection on many of the key issues which concern not only person-centred practitioners but those across the whole counselling and psychotherapy field. New to this edition is: - the inclusion of "relational depth", a key development for the person-centred approach and counselling generally - extended discussion of the counsellor's use of self - a new chapter containing the authors' answers to frequently-asked-questions - the inclusion of diversity issues covering religion, gender and sexual orientation - further reading suggestions. Much has changed in the person-centred orientation since the death of Carl Rogers in 1987. Not only have new schools of thought emerged with different emphases and therapeutic possibilities but the authors of this book have themselves been responsible for significant advances in key areas of person-centred theory and practice. These developments are fully reflected in the revised text. Continuing to offer a clear exposition of the theory and practice of the approach, Person-Centred Counselling in Action, Third Edition will be invaluable for those embarking on their first stages of training. Well-established practitioners and even seasoned scholars will continue to find much to interest and stimulate them. Praise for previous editions: `An important book... a most sophisticated text. Mearns and Thorne have written a book for all counsellors and psychotherapists. The reader will be left both grateful and hungry for more' - British Journal of Guidance and Counselling `The discussion of empathy, acceptance and congruence is central and should be required reading for all trainees working to understand the richness of these core concepts... outstanding' - Counselling and Psychotherapy, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy `Without doubt the clearest description of the person-centred approach to counselling that I have read, apart from Carl Rogers' own writings. I felt that I had got to know both Dave Mearns and Brian Thorne through their offering the reader their own congruence and I found this aspect of the book at times quite moving' - Social Work Today `Gives real insight into person-centred counselling... This is a gentle book; an absolute delight to read (I couldn't put it down) as it held me in the realm of my own feelings. I would like to thank both authors for sharing so much of their intimate selves. I recommend this book to trainee counsellors, trained counsellors, clients and those involved in the helping professions. It is a book that has influenced me and that I would not want to be without' - BPS Counselling Psychology Review `Excellent "all rounder" for practitioners to learn and build upon counselling skills with young offenders' - lecturer, Guidance, Youth and Youth Justice, Nottingham Trent University `An excellent text. Student friendly and covering all main issues' - lecturer, Psychology Swansea Institute of HE `Stimulates a re-exploration of the doctor-patient relationship' - British Medical Journal `I felt understood by this book!' - Ann Weiser, PCA Letter Network `This book could very sensibly be placed on the reading lists of all counselling trainers and trainees.... this is the most informative and useful book I have read in a long time and I have no doubt that if Carl Rogers were still alive today, he would not only agree but also acknowledge experiencing some envy' - Changes `The skilful conveying of tenderness and building of trust are well explained and described with lots of case study examples' - Guidance Matters `Excellent book - a useful and practical way to underpin current emphasis on humanism in nursing' - lecturer, West London NHS Mental Health Trust `Continues to be an excellent, easy introduction but with depth. Deserves to be a bestseller!' - lecturer, Preston College `The book conveys the profound respect for the person, for his/her autonomy and uniqueness, which is inherent in the Rogerian approach' - British Journal of Medical Psychology `A marvelous book; highly recommended. Someone has finally written an easily accessible book about the theory and practice - mostly practice - of the kind of therapy that makes the most sense to many focusers. Hurrah!' - The Focusing Connection `Truly allows the reader to enter the world of the person-centered counsellor' - Contemporary Psychology `Person Centred Counselling in Action, written by Dave Mearns and Brian Thorne was originally published in 1988 about a year after the death of Carl Rogers. It has helped to maintain and stimulate interest in this approach and has become a best-seller in the Counselling in Action series' - The Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy

To view the video - click here ------------------------------------------------------------ `How hard it is to find a book to recommend to trainees, which will give them an insight into what counselling (and psychotherapy too, for that matter) is really like. This book does exactly that.... This is a book which would be equally useful to the humanistic practitioner and the more orthodox one. The breadth of sympathy is admirable in dealing with what is common to all orientations. This is one of those rare books which does justice both to the human experiences involved in counselling and psychotherapy, and to the theory which might explain those experiences' - Changes What is the experience of counselling from the perspectives of both client and counsellor? What can be learned for the practice of counselling from an understanding of how it feels to be a client or a counsellor? Addressing these questions, central to this book are the personal accounts of individual clients and counsellors, who each relate their own very different experiences of counselling. They explore such issues as identity, expectations, trust, power and boundaries in the client-counsellor relationship. And each examines the intense personal meanings of `success' or `failure' in the client or counsellor role. An analysis of the implications for the counselling relationship concludes the volume.

How can you help clients get the most out of the counseling experience? The authors of this clear and accessible volume outline the key principles of Personal Construct Theory. They discuss and illustrate how the starting point of counseling is a careful exploration of the ways in which a client construes his or her world through credulous listening to all the client says and does not say. They describe the range of methods which may be used to help a counselor and client learn about these constructions and their implications, including self characterizations and the repertory grid technique. In addition, the authors show how the counselor and client, together devise experiments for change through which the client can try out new and more rewarding ways of interpreting and acting. A number of approaches to facilitate change are discussed and exemplified, . The book concludes with a detailed case-study of the counseling process with one particular client. "This is an informative book which is concise, well written and with no shortage of clinical examples. It should be relevant to all who are interested in counselling and psychotherapy and it may just whet some appetites for more." --British Journal of Psychology "One of the excellent series 'Counselling in Action'. . . . If you want to know about Personal Construct counselling, this is for you." --Self and Society "The book provides a very readable introduction that is to be commended. The authors provide useful summaries of repertory grids, fixed role therapy, self-characterization, and other methods for helping people change." --International Review of Psychology

Eagerly awaited by many counsellors and psychotherapists, this new edition includes an updated preface, new content on recent research and new developments and debates around relational depth, and new case studies. This groundbreaking text goes to the very heart of the therapeutic meeting between therapist and client. Focusing on the concept of 'relational depth', the authors describe a form of encounter in which therapist and client experience profound feelings of contact and engagement with each other, and in which the client has an opportunity to explore whatever is experienced as most fundamental to her or his existence. The book has helped thousands of trainees and practitioners understand how to facilitate a relationally-deep encounter, identify the personal ‘blocks’ that may be encountered along the way, and consider new therapeutic concepts – such as 'holistic listening' – that help them to meet their clients at this level. This classic text remains a source of fresh thinking and stimulating ideas about the therapeutic encounter which is relevant to trainees and practitioners of all orientations.

Motivation durch Sinn Jeder dritte Arbeitnehmer hat innerlich bereits gekündigt: Konflikte, Frust und mangelnde Motivation sind die Folge. Die Ursachen sind nicht nur im falschen Führungsverhalten des Top-Managements zu suchen, sondern auch bei jedem Einzelnen: Das Fehlen von Sinn führt zu Leistungseinbußen, psychosomatischen Beschwerden und allgemeiner Unzufriedenheit. Viktor Frankl, der Begründer der Dritten Wiener Richtung der Psychotherapie bzw. Logotherapie stellte die Suche nach dem Sinn in den Mittelpunkt seines Lebenswerkes. Alex Pattakos überträgt Frankls Gedankengut auf die Arbeitswelt und lädt den Leser ein, ihm auf der Suche nach dem Sinn zu folgen. Er zeigt, wie es gelingt, nicht mehr Gefangener negativer Gedanken zu sein, sondern eingefahrene Muster zu überdenken, eigene Widerstände gegen Veränderungen zu überwinden und damit die Tür zu einem tieferen Sinn aufzustoßen. Die zweite überarbeitet Auflage enthält einige neue Fallbeispiele. Außerdem wurde ein weiteres Kapitel hinzugefügt: „The Meaning Difference“, das Forschungsergebnisse darüber beinhaltet, wie sehr das Vorhandensein von Sinn das Leben von Menschen verbessern kann.

Dieses Buch ist nach den Worten des Verfassers Ausdruck seiner Überzeugung, daß die Beratung ein erlernbarer, überschaubarer und verstehbarer Prozeß ist, ein Prozeß, der vermittelt, überprüft, verfeinert und verbessert werden kann. Es soll angehende wie erfahrene Berater und Therapeuten zu weiterer Erforschung von Theorie und Praxis anregen. Rogers ist überzeugt, daß wir eher zu wenig als zuviel Vertrauen in die Wachstumsmöglichkeiten des Individuums haben, und er möchte mit seinem Buch dazu beitragen, die im Individuum beschlossenen Wachstums- und Entwicklungspotentiale zu erkunden und zu fördern. Das Buch ist" im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes ein praktisches Buch, geschrieben von einem Mann, der über langjährige und erfolgreiche Erfahrung als Berater und Psychotherapeut verfügt."Leonard Carmichael in seinem Vorwort.
