The authors, both practitioners in the person-centered approach, guide other counselors through the skills needed to develop and foster trust with clients, a process that goes to the heart (defines as both "core" and "emotion") of the counseling process, the goal being to allow the client to lead the way. They explain the eleven key concepts of the process and the benefits of listening therapeutically, creating empathy, developing a capacity for unconditional positive regard, getting started with new clients, structuring the therapeutic relationship, managing crises and working across cultures, ending the therapeutic relationship, and developing skills. The authors include case studies and activities. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
