Edited by two of the UK's principal practitioners of the Person-Centred Approach, this book is an international collection of specially commissioned papers. This is the first substantial book within the person-centred tradition on groupwork since Carl Rogers' Encounter Groups. Topics include: the history of the development of small and large groupwork within the PCA; theoretical principles of person-centred groupwork; research and applications of PCA groupwork, working with issues of sexuality and sexism; the use of the group in training; and large groups and workshops in the PCA. This book is recommended reading for all students of groupwork in the person-centred tradition on both sides of the Atlantic. There is no other book in print that covers the same ground.
