The Journal Person-Centered Review was published in the late '80s and represents a treasured archive of writing in the approach. Containing 58 carefully selected papers, this book is a substantial ('best of') collection of papers from the Person-Centered Review that no college, library or training institute can afford to be without. This is an unparalleled collection of classic person-centered writing, grouped in six sections including Shlien's 'A Countertheory of Transference' with all the reactions and Shlien's responses (11 papers in all), plus the five-paper symposium on 'Psychodiagnosis' led by Angelo Boy.
