Summary

Eagerly awaited by many counsellors and psychotherapists, this new edition includes an updated preface, new content on recent research and new developments and debates around relational depth, and new case studies. 

This groundbreaking text goes to the very heart of the therapeutic meeting between therapist and client. Focusing on the concept of "relational depth", the authors describe a form of encounter in which therapist and client experience profound feelings of contact and engagement with each other, and in which the client has an opportunity to explore whatever is experienced as most fundamental to her or his existence. The book has helped thousands of trainees and practitioners understand how to facilitate a relationally deep encounter, identify the personal "blocks" that may be encountered along the way, and consider new therapeutic concepts - such as "holistic listening" - that help them to meet their clients at this level.

This classic text remains a source of fresh thinking and stimulating ideas about the therapeutic encounter which is relevant to trainees and practitioners of all orientations.

Constant references ruin tge writing.

Its almost impossible to take in the subjects discussed in the book as the narrator reads aloud every reference while going along. It waould be much better if these were listed in a seperate pdf.
