Person-centred communication involves significant and empathic perception and understanding of oneself and others. This book uses the humanistic psychology of Carl Rogers to offer a comprehensive person-centred communication framework, which the authors have tried and tested in therapeutic, education and management practice. Skilfully blending theory with practice, the authors explain the core skills of person-centred communication.

There are reflective exercises and conversation transcripts from a variety of settings, along with many examples from therapy and related helping professions. These span diverse life situations and applications, including:

  • One-to-one work with clients
  • Teamwork and groupwork
  • Lifelong learning
  • Reflection
  • Online and other written forms of communication
Exploring these real life situations offers invaluable inspiration to therapists, students and trainees as well as practitioners in the helping professions. This book will help you to process your experiences more sensitively, thus improving your own practice, relationships, and teamwork.
