I believe this book follows its cover-title closely. Its aim is to offer a comprehensive, holistic, person centred and integrative model for therapy and supervision. I think they manage that through accessible language, many examples, illustrations as well as case studies. The authors give an excellent overview of Rogers work / Person-Centered Approach in Therapy and Supervision, TA, CBT and Gestalt. Their overview is useful for revisiting, revision or to get a foundational taste of those modalities... You could call this book value for money or a full-on package deal! Take your pick. I hope you'll find it as informative as I did. -- Counselling Today (NZ)
This book is clearly written, and there are plenty of case vignettes and other examples. -- ACPNL Magazine
If you are interested in learning and in choice, and in a stance of shared responsibility in therapy or supervision, this book will stir your reflective juices. The authors' "FIT" model suggests options for practitioners and provides a framework for structuring sessions, for assessment at the start of a contract, and for choices within different phases of the work. The focus on learning theory in therapy and supervision is stimulating and well researched, and the book is clearly written and easy to read. -- Penny Henderson, accredited Counsellor and Supervisor, Fellow of BACP and editor of Supervision Training: Issues and Approaches
