This unit provides a foundational understanding of the theories, concepts, attitudes and practices of humanistic psychotherapy, with a particular focus on Person-Centred Therapy and the work of its founder, Carl Rogers. This unit supports students in the development of therapeutic presence and foundational counselling skills. The skills and attitudes introduced in this unit are contextualised via exploration of recent research into the common factors of successful therapy, including the neuroscience of relationships. The material presented in class and via selected readings will be practically applied through in-class ‘real plays’ practice.
