The Human Being Fully Alive: Writings in Celebration of Brian Thorne

 
9781906254346: The Human Being Fully Alive: Writings in Celebration of Brian Thorne

This collection of writings by 8 enthusiastic exponents of the Person-Centred Approach is presented as a Festschrift, offered in tribute to Brian Thorne, one of Britain's seminal practitioners, teachers and writers of that therapeutic orientation from its earliest days in the UK. Brian is particularly recognised for his ability to focus and express the spiritual dimension and applications of person-centredness. Each essay relates to the spiritual dimension of therapy and being human from a variety of perspectives and will speak to readers of many faith affiliations and none. Jeff Leonardi has gathered material which breaks out of the either/or trap of faith positions and embraces the living experience of human beings in all its richness and profundity, while acknowledging a dimension which both Carl Rogers and Brian Thorne refer to as 'spiritual' without the dogmas which alienate so many from institutional religions.

About the Author:

After counselling training at Aston in Birmigham (1978 - 1979), I worked as a counsellor, supervisor and trainer for ten years, during which time I also pursued, or was pursued by, training for ordination as a priest in the Church of England. I served as a parish priest in Cumbria from 1988- 1997 and was then appointed Bishop's Adviser for Pastoral Care and Counselling, and Associate Minister in a cluster of rural parishes in the Lichfield Diocese in Staffordshire. In 2009 I was awarded a doctorate, 'Partners or Adversaries: Christianity and the Person-Centred Approach ' by the University of East Anglia. In 2010 PCCS Books published a collection of papers which I edited and contributed to: 'The Human Being Fully Alive: writings in celebration of Brian Thorne'. I retired from full-time work in 2014 and now live in West Wales, continuing as a Counsellor, Supervisor and Trainer in private practice, and with Licence to Officiate as Priest. In 2015 I became an Honorary Research Fellow of the Religious Experience Research Centre of the University of Wales Trinity St David at Lampeter, where my main focus of research is relational spirituality in the therapeutic context.
