The workshop will look at what it means to be a person-centred practitioner, inside and outside of the
counselling room, and whether or not we can integrate different approaches to a person-centred way of working
without doing a disservice to the approach.
There are currently a large percentage of practitioners assigning themselves as person-centred alongside other
approaches and working in what may be described as an integrative way of working.
In his article in Therapy today,
Chris calls in to question this approach to working and highlight what seems to be a
growing misunderstanding and misrepresentation of the person-centred approach.
He also argues for a re-examination of why we practice the approaches that we do and how we can often use our belief
in human nature to shape our practice but also highlight possible mismatches in our ways of working.
Chris would love to just be able to discuss this issue to help learning and understanding for both himself and others
He is open to have his ideas turned on their head!
