As founder of the person-centred approach, Carl Rogers (1902-1987) is an influential psychologist and psychotherapist. Providing insights into his life and an explanation of his major theoretical ideas, this book offers an introduction for those practitioners and students of the person-centred approach.
Carl Rogers by the time of his death had influenced psychology, counseling, and education in ways that defy the efforts of many professionals and scholars. Paul Tillich influenced theology and philosophy in similar ways. If anyone wishes to study in the fields mentioned, that person has to deal with this thinkers. It is with fear and trepidation I approach the Rogers – Tillich dialogue held in 1965 at San Diego State University in 1965. I am but a mere mortal who had his brain scrambled by these two giants.
Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I am a psychologist who has spent much of his career studying psychotherapy. My book, Client-Centered Therapy, is about the suffering and the hope, the anxiety and the satisfaction, that fills each therapist’s counseling room. It is about the unique relationship each therapist forms with each client, and the common elements that they all share. #2 I was raised in a home marked by close family ties, a very strict and uncompromising religious and ethical atmosphere, and a worship of the virtue of hard work. I was fascinated by the night-flying moths, and I became an authority on the gorgeous Luna, Cecropia, and other moths that inhabited our woods. #3 I was a history major at Wisconsin when I fell in love with a girl whom I had known for many years. I was married with the reluctant consent of my parents so that we could go to graduate school together. #4 I was a member of a group that petitioned the administration to allow them to set up a seminar for credit, a seminar with no instructor, where the curriculum would be composed of their own questions. The seminary was understandably perplexed by this, but they granted our petition.
This breakthrough edition of Theories of Counseling and Psychotherapy: An Integrative Approach, by Elsie Jones-Smith, sets a new standard in counseling theories books. The Second Edition goes beyond expert coverage of traditional and social constructivist theories with coverage of more contemporary approaches to psychotherapy, including individual chapters on spirituality and psychotherapy, strengths-based therapy, neuroscience and neuropsychotherapy, motivational interviewing, and the expressive arts therapies.

Up to date and easy to read, the book engages readers with inner reflection questions that help them apply the theories to the lives of their clients and shows them how to develop their own integrative approach to psychotherapy.
Modelled on Three Psychologies: Perspectives from Freud, Skinner and Rogers, this book provides an introduction to an overview of the main therapeutic approaches used in psychotherapy and counselling today.
Psychology's Grand Theorists argues that the three schools in psychology that have been dominant historically--the psychodynamic, behavioral, and phenomenological--have resulted in large part from the personal experiences of their originators. Sigmund Freud, B.F. Skinner, and Carl Rogers each believed that he had discovered the truth about human nature, yet their truths are entirely different. This book explores how the lives of these men influenced the divergent theories they developed, through a close examination of letters, diaries, biographies, autobiographies, and professional writings. Uncovering the subjective sources of these theories, the book gives the reader a greater sense of intimacy with each man's ideas, and promotes critical inquiry into their scientific status. The book is written in an engaging style that will appeal to a wide range of readers. Intended as a supplement in courses on personality, clinical psychology, and/or the history of psychology, it will also be of interest to clinicians or counselors who use one or more of these theoretical models in their therapeutic work.

Advancing the application of Carl Rogers' ideas, this book presents new theoretical and practical views of Rogerian influences on rhetorical theory, the teaching of writing, and pragmatic discourse. Practically, the contributors focus on the dynamics of Rogerian communication in real-world contexts, extending Rogers' person-centered principles into classroom interactions, peer response groups, and other collaborations. Theoretically, discussions situate Rogerian principles within the contexts of persuasive and dialogical rhetoric, and of psychoanalytic and philosophical intersubjectivity. Also included are transcripts of an interview with Rogers, and a forum discussion epitomizing Rogerian principles in action.
