Person centred psychology developed from the work of Carl Rogers, an American psychotherapist and psychologist, who died in 1987. Over the last 50 years the "Person Centred Approach" (PCA)has become one of the most influential approaches to understanding and helping people. Its theory and philosophy, originally developed in the field of counselling and psychotherapy, has been extended to include applications to education, social and community work and the exploration of interpersonal and international conflict.
This book poses a series of everyday questions, such as, What makes us tick? Where do my values come from? How did I become who I am? Why are relationships so important? and then explores each of these issues showing how and why person centred psychology takes an optimistic view of human nature. In the process it also provides some novel ideas to help us explain why people behave in the way they do.

Tony was Reader in Psychology at the University of East London and taught on postgraduate and undergraduate courses in counselling and counselling psychology. He was author of several books and articles on counselling, including Learning and Being in Person-Centred Counselling -- see below. He co-founded the British Association for the Person-Centred Approach (BAPCA) in 1989 and was editor of the BAPCA journal Person-Centred Practice until his untimely death in August 2004. He contributed to workshops and other person-centred events in Europe, including several with Carl Rogers in England, Ireland and Hungary in the 1980s.Review:
... refreshingly comprehensive in the attention it gives to areas other than person-centred therapy and containing a wealth of illustrative material bringing to life issues within human development, the person-centred approach in education, group work and peace studies. Congratulations to Tony Merry on an important addition to the recommended book list of any person-centred training course and for reminding us that person-centred psychology is only partially about person-centred therapy. Dave Mearns, Person-Centred Practice
