Description

British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (2018) Ethical framework for the counselling professions. Clearly, I believe in Carl Rogers' theories, otherwise I wouldn't have spent the past four years training in his style of counselling, but he was ultimately a scientist and some of his theory does get a tad complicated for my non-scientific brain.

In the second edition of this hugely popular book, Tony Merry reorganised and updated the text to include the latest initiatives in the world of counselling and psychotherapy. He was author of several books and articles on counselling, including Learning and Being in Person-Centred Counselling — see below. Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. It is heavily referenced, beautifully so, and so leads you to many more sources to use for assignments (if that is your purpose, which I suspect at this level of publication it would be).Chapter covers essential aspects of theory and practice, including working at relational depth, training issues and supervision, and a comprehensive resource list of other relevant texts. He (with Sheila Haugh’s sympathetic updating) makes reference to the many theorists and practitioners who have influenced the approach, giving the reader an insight into the strands that make up the tapestry of person-centred therapy.

It is highly accessible to students at any level of study and contains numerous practical exercises to help the reader gain a deeper understanding of person-centred theory. Tony was Reader in Psychology at the University of East London and taught on postgraduate and undergraduate courses in counselling and counselling psychology. He was author of several books and articles on counselling, including Learning and Being in Person-Centred Counselling. Despite being first published more than 20 years ago, this book remains relevant to contemporary person-centred counselling practice. I feel sure that trainees will also find the 'Resources' chapter in Merry helpful too - it leaves them with somewhere to go.Learning and Being in Person-Centred Counselling is an important book for any student of counselling and psychotherapy. Tony Merry’s book is both a comprehensive introduction to the practice of person-centred counselling and a useful start point for understanding the development of the approach. She is a UK Council for Psychotherapy Registered Psychotherapist and teaches a Masters level programme in Contemporary Person-Centred Psychotherapy and Applications. As a facilitator of person-centred learning groups for many years, I’ve experienced how Tony’s writing evokes passionate engagement, dialogue and encounter among participants.

To give a flavour of these, Merry explores issues around many placement agencies offering time limited therapy and the difficulties trainees experience with this, offering helpful texts (including references to Brian Thorne) along the way. I anticipate that trainees will especially welcome the additions to the Merry book about placements (chapter six, 'Training Issues: Client work and personal development') and Supervision (chapter seven). To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The book Learning and Being in Person-Centred Counselling by Tony Merry has inspired and guided thousands of counselling students since it was first published in 1999.It covers the basic issues, but does so in more depth, and with a greater appreciation for the ranges of alternative opinions, than do some of the other introductory books I've read. He deftly conveys the philosophy of the person-centred approach with a sophisticated precision and a personal warmth. I would recommend Learning and Being as an essential read for all students of the person-centred approach. Tony Merry died in 2004, and this third edition has been updated, with a new chapter on recent developments, by Sheila Haugh, a long-time colleague who knew him and his work well.

I also valued the inclusion of the nineteen propositions in the Merry book, and the translations into more approachable language will, I think, be welcomed by trainees .
