Why do I need to learn about CBT and/or the Person-centered Approach? What can these techniques contribute to my counseling training and practice?

This book has some of the answers, showing humanistic, CBT and integrative therapists how to get to grips with each other's approaches. CBT has become more fully present in the therapeutic landscape and therapists from other modalities are increasingly being required to understand or even train in the approach.

Responding to this growing pressure for change, Person-centered therapist Roger Casemore joins forces with Jeremy Tudway. Together they show how counselors can respect and value each other's approaches by more clearly understanding the similarities and differences in theory, philosophy and practice. They clarify how therapists draw upon this knowledge in their practice without betraying the values of their core approach.

This book is recommended for anyone studying Person-centered or CBT modules on counseling & psychotherapy courses, or experienced practitioners wishing to adapt their practice for NHS settings.

  • A client experiencing difficulties with anger and aggression and alcohol use.
