Theoretical Evolutions in Person-Centered/Experiential Therapy:

Applications to Schizophrenic and Retarded Psychoses
by Garry Prouty
Praeger Publishers (ISBN: 0-275-94543-X)

A concisely written professional book discussing the historical foundations and evolution of person-centered/experiential therapy from Carl Rogers and Eugene Gendlin to its application (via pre-therapy) with individuals suffering from schizophrenia or mental retardation. An insightful book taking a somewhat unorthodox but certainly more human look at how professionals could treat these disorders. Also offers specifics of how this approach could be integrated into other, existing approaches, such as Gestalt. A very interesting read. 113 pages, hardback.
