Person-Centred Theory and Practice:  Third of Four Seminars

Facilitator: Ivan Ellingham, PhD 

There is nothing so practical as good theory. Kurt Lewin 

I believe that there is only one statement which can accurately apply to all theories from the theory I will present to the one which I hope will replace it in a decade—and that is that at the time of its formulation every theory contains an unknown (and perhaps at that point an unknowable) amount of error and mistaken inference. Unless we regard the discovery of truth as a closed and finished book, then there will be new discoveries which will contradict the best theories we can now construct. Carl Rogers 

These seminars provide the opportunity for person-centred practitioners (and others) to discuss, reflect upon and critique past and present formulations of person-centred theory in relation to individuals current working practice within the context of contemporary developments within the field of counselling/mental health. 

Each seminar will focus on a particular topic (usually group chosen) and involve some optional reading. The topic for the first seminar is:
