The fifth International Conference for Client-Centered and Experiential Psychotherapy brought together researchers, theorists and practitioners from around the world. The event was held in the USA for the first time, returning to the 'home' of Client-Centered Therapy: Chicago. From more than two hundred papers presented at the conference, thirty-nine have been collected in this volume representing contemporary thinking in theory, research and practice. The rich diversity of thinking and opinion in this book is testimony to the vigour of the theoretical discourse. An essential resource for all psychotherapy educators, researchers and practitioners.
