This book has a mission – to gather the tribes of the person-centred nation for dialogue; to discover common ground and debate differences; to celebrate the fact that we are, as Margaret Warner declared, ‘one nation, many tribes’.

This popular, widely used set-text has been revised and considerably extended for both students and practitioners.

New to this edition are

  • Revised contributions from Nick Baker, Mick Cooper, Campbell Purton and Richard Worsley
  •  A chapter on Emotion Focused Therapy by Prof Robert Elliott
  •  An entire section on ‘new developments’ comprising:  Person-Centred Expressive Therapies (Dinah Brown),  Pre-Therapy (Pete Sanders),  Relational Depth (Rosanne Knox), Counselling for Depression (Andy Hill)

The 2012 edition of Tribes is the first UK student text to include coverage of this comprehensive range of person-centred and experiential therapies and approaches
