When spirituality is understood as a dimension of human being, and not purely in terms of affiliation or subscription to a system of belief, it can enable a rich and fruitful discourse. Both Rogers and Thorne have offered statements of such understandings and in this dialogue, I will hope to honour their and my take on such a central theme of human awareness.

From the origins of Carl Rogers' person-centred approach to the cutting-edge developments of therapy today, the Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy Handbook charts the journey of an ambitious vision to its successful reality. In this book, Lago and Charura bring together history, theory, research, and practice to deliver a complete and unique perspective on the person-centred approach.
Key topics include:
- The groundbreaking journey of PCA’'s early decades, spearheaded by Carl Rogers.
- Developments and extensions of the original theory and practice.
- The influence of PCA in developing new therapies and practice.
- The frontier of contemporary PCA, and therapists' work with client groups of difference and diversity.
With its broad view that explores the origins, variations, and applications of PCA, The Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy Handbook gives a comprehensive overview of the knowledge required and the issues faced by practitioners, making it an important resource for the seasoned and training practitioner alike.
