Originally published by Whurr in 1995, PCCS Books is very pleased to be re-issuing this excellent and still popular book.
This book poses a number of everyday questions, such as 'What makes us tick?' 'Where do my values come from?'How did I become who I am?' and 'Why are relationships so important?' In his acclaimed authoritative and accessible style, Tony Merry explores each of these issues, showing how and why person-centred psychology takes an optimistic view of human nature.
In the process, he also provides some novel ideas to help explain why people behave the way they do.
This book looks at how person-centred psychology can make a positive contribution to education, multiculturalism, power issues and living constructively with each other, as well as to counselling and psychotherapy.
This work is intended for psychology undergraduates, trainee and beginning nurses, teachers, support workers, counsellors and psychotherapists who want a practical exploration of person-centred psychology.
