To Lead an Honorable Life
Invitations to Think About Client-Centred Therapy and the Person-Centred Approach
This collection of the work of John Shlien is exactly what the subtitle says: 'an invitation to think about client-centered therapy and the person-centered approach'. It features John's best-known work alongside some lesser-know papers and a handful of hitherto unpublished essays. John Shlien was one of the most influential of Carl Rogers' students and associates, as a writer, researcher and academic. With a witty, provocative style as a writer and speaker, John was an insightful commentator and creative theorist, able to provoke vigorous debate wherever he went. This collection gives the reader a chance to sample the breadth of his ideas.

What Reviewers Are Saying
The title comes for one of Shlien's statements: - 'however appealing and benevolent happiness may be, I do not consider if to be a worthy ultimate objective of therapy or life. Instead I believe that the most important objective in modern civilization is: how to lead an honorable life' - There is a lot of inspiration in this book and I would thoroughly recommend it to practitioners from the diploma student to the most experienced trainer. Geoff Lamb, neuroscientist and body therapist, Self and Society, Dec 2006.
