`A well-researched, clearly written book... Clarkson and Mackewn did a splendid job organising the theoretical material... Their judicious use of graphics enhances their discussions... The chapter on Perls' contributions to practice is nicely peppered by samples of his actual therapy work and this is true for other chapters. This, I imagine, is how Fritz would have liked it: to let his work speak for itself... Clarkson and Mackewn have carefully crafted and produced a powerfully informative book.

As founder of the person-centred approach, Carl Rogers (1902-1987) is arguably the most influential psychologist and psychotherapist of the 20th century. This book provides unique insights into his life and a clear explanation of his major theoretical ideas. This Third Edition is co-authored by Brian Thorne and Pete Sanders, leading person-centred practitioners and bestselling authors. Pete Sanders contributes a new chapter on "The Ongoing Influence of Carl Rogers", covering topics such as research, the emerging tribes in person-centred tradition, and its interaction with the medical profession. Brian Thorne draws on his experience of having known and worked with Rogers to beautifully describe the way in which Rogers worked with clients and from that, to draw out the practical implications of what is, in effect, a functional philosophy of human growth and relationships. In the twenty years since the first edition of Carl Rogers appeared, the book has continued to provide an accessible introduction for all practitioners and students of the person-centred approach.

`In this eminently sensible, practical and thought-provoking book, Jennifer Mackewn takes gestalt light years forward towards a synthesis and integration of psychological styles and away from what she describes as "Perlism". I agree with her: this is a book for therapists, not principally for gestaltists... In inviting the reader to "pick and choose" from the many and varied, always practical, hands-on approach chapters... Jennifer Mackewn hopes we will both enjoy her book and find it of use. This reader, commending the book to you all, has no doubt that both her hopes will be fulfilled' - Self & Society Describing contemporary integrative Gestalt counselling and psychotherapy, this book addresses 30 key issues which will help both trainee and practising counsellors examine and improve crucial areas of their work. The field theoretical and relational model which underpins the book suggests that therapy is a complex process which requires therapists to be intuitive and self-aware while engaging in a number of interrelated therapeutic tasks. The importance of meeting clients person-to-person in a meaningful relationship is highlighted. Jennifer Mackewn encourages counsellors to focus on areas that they may feel need special attention, and shows them how to blend their skills into a subtle and versatile art form. The book covers vital aspects of Gestalt counselling and psychotherapy, such as: appreciating the significance of beginnings; understanding the client's context; the dialogic relationship; contact and awareness; exploring life themes and support systems; and experimental and creative methods.

Originally, gestalt therapy was developed as a therapy of neurosis. Although its basic concepts remain the same, gestalt therapy has been expanded and refined in both theory and practice. Today, it constitutes a modern form of psychotherapy, suitable as both a form of developmental therapy and a treatment for a wide range of client categories with many different mental disorders. This book discusses the impact of the US origins of gestalt therapy, and it underlines the importance of a high degree of sensitivity to cultural aspects as gestalt therapy spreads throughout the world. It is crucial that gestalt therapists consider the culture and the social conditions which form the context for their practice of gestalt therapy. The book is primarily an introductory textbook, offering a clear and sober presentation of the values, theories, methods, and techniques of gestalt therapy.

Joseph Yankura and Windy Dryden present a lucid overview of the life and contributions of Albert Ellis. Using excerpts from Ellis's own writings to clarify the discussion, they look in particular at the famous ABC analysis which enables people to understand and deal with their problems, the key concepts of ego disturbance and discomfort disturbance, and Ellis's views on therapeutic efficiency.
