Carl Rogers' Therapeutic Conditions: Evolution, Theory and Practice traces the evolution and application of Carl Rogers' necessary and sufficient therapeutic conditions from 1957 to the present day. All four books from the series should be carefully considered by serious followers of the person-centred approach. While in the past few decades there has been a focus on the so-called 'core' conditions of empathy, acceptance and authenticity, the revolutionary statement that Rogers actually posited was that there were six conditions that were 'necessary and sufficient for therapeutic growth', and that this was independent of the therapeutic approach or technique adopted. 

Volume 1: Congruence Genuineness, transparency, authenticity and realness are all terms used to convey Rogers' concept of congruence. This book is the first to specifically focus on, and collect critical explorations of, this under-studied therapeutic condition with an international collection of leading writers in the person-centred tradition. Serious students of person-centred theory now have writing representing the most vibrant contemporary thinking on congruence thoughtfully drawn together in one volume. Volume 2: Empathy What is empathy? Is it a basic human characteristic? Is there a biological basis for it? How does it work in therapy? Is it a necessary condition for therapeutic change? Sheila Haugh and Tony Merry have assembled a formidable collection of distinguished writers from Client-Centred Therapy and the Person-Centred Approach to help the serious student examine these and other important questions. Volume 3 Unconditional Positive Regard Third in this impressive series, another distinguished international collection of theorists and practitioners lead the serious student to a cutting-edge appreciation of Unconditional Positive Regard. Once dubbed a 'controversial' condition by Germain Lietaer, and seen by Jerold Bozarth as the 'curative factor' in client-centred therapy, UPR has never had so much attention focused on it. Readers from all disciplines can discover how contemporary person-centred therapists are thinking about, and working with, this 'core' condition. Volume 4: Contact and Perception Understudied to the point of being ignored, conditions one and six of Carl Rogers' Necessary and Sufficient' conditions are given due attention for the first time in this volume. Writers from three continents put psychological contact and the client's perception of the therapist not only on the theoretical map, but at the very centre of it. The result is a series of papers outlining genuine new theory and practice for all counsellors and therapists, not only those of a person-centred persuasion.

Paul Wilkins

 I am an academic and therapist deeply committed to the person-centred approach about which I have written papers, chapters and books. My doctoral study was concerned with what it means to be person-centred and I am currently as much interested in how to be person-centred as a researcher as I am in extending my understanding of person-centred theory and practice. I am passionate about the creativity I see as inherent in the approach and seek to apply this to all areas of my life. When I am not thinking, writing, researching or teaching, I enjoy the good things the world has to offer; wild places, music, wine and food, to name but a few! Until my recent retirement I was senior lecturer in the Department of Pyschology and Social Change at Manchester Metropolitan University.
