As founder of the person-centred approach, Carl Rogers (1902-1987) is arguably the most influential psychologist and psychotherapist of the 20th century. This book provides unique insights into his life and a clear explanation of his major theoretical ideas.

This Third Edition is co-authored by Brian Thorne and Pete Sanders, leading person-centred practitioners and bestselling authors. Pete Sanders contributes a new chapter on "The Ongoing Influence of Carl Rogers", covering topics such as research, the emerging tribes in person-centred tradition, and its interaction with the medical profession.

Brian Thorne draws on his experience of having known and worked with Rogers to beautifully describe the way in which Rogers worked with clients and from that, to draw out the practical implications of what is, in effect, a functional philosophy of human growth and relationships.

In the twenty years since the first edition of Carl Rogers appeared, the book has continued to provide an accessible introduction for all practitioners and students of the person-centred approach.

""I am impressed... Brian Thorne includes an interesting debate about criticisms made by Buber, May and others about Rogers' practice, and the influence they had on his practice... For me, Rogers came alive in this debate... useful for anyone interested in checking their understanding (and possible misunderstanding) about PCA and who wants an overview of "the state of the art" in the early 1990s' - "Counselling, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling

"Attractively written and very readable... A must for the branch bookshelf' - "The Samaritan


Thorne's account of Rogers is clear... his personal knowledge of Rogers informs the book' - "British Journal of Medical Psychology

"This book will become a popular introductory text for students of Rogers' person-centred philosophy. It is a clear and comprehensive introduction to Carl Rogers - the man and his works... A healthy battle ensues between Criticisms and Rebuttals. Perhaps Rogers enjoyed such battles himself, as I did... Rogers' philosophy begins to feel more like a living dynamic entity... Throughout, the book presents a powerful picture of the revolutionary nature of Rogers' work and its continuing impact on the psychotherapeutic community' - "British Psychological Society Counselling Psychology Review

"A competent review... new elements consist of reviews of trends and selected, unpublished conference presentations' - "Choice
