`In this scholarly book, Thorne and Lambers have gathered together significant contributions to the advancement of person-centred theory and practice from leading exponents of the approach in Austria, Belgium, Germany, The Netherlands, Norway and the United Kingdom.... I found the book both stimulating and challenging. The insight it offers into working with "e;difficult"e; clients is invaluable and the sections on theory stretched me in my understanding of the approach. I strongly recommend it to anyone from within or without the person-centred tradition who wants to achieve a real understanding of the approach "e;post Rogers"e; and get to grips with the vibrancy and vitality of person-centred thought in Europe' - Counselling and Psychotherapy, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy
