INTRODUCTION

This survey is a continuation of three previous surveys I published on the occasion of the First and Second International Conference on Client-centered and Experiential Psychotherapy (Leuven 1988, Stirling 1991, Gmunden 1994):

- The client-centered/experiential/person-centered approach 1950-1987: Bibliographical survey

- Client-centered/experiential psychotherapy and counseling. Bibliographical survey 1988-1990

- Client-centered/experiential psychotherapy and counseling. Bibliographical survey 1991-1993

These bibliographical brochures are available through: G. Lietaer, Counseling Centrum, Blijde Inkomststraat 13, 3000 Leuven, Belgium.

I wish to thank Peter Schmid and Georges Wollants, who sent me their own recent bibliographical data (on client-centered and Gestalt psychotherapy respectively). My special thanks to Els Vloeberghen who carefully and patiently typed all references and "put it all together".

It is my hope that this bibliographical survey will contribute to a fuller knowledge of all what has been written on the client-centered/experiential approach, and that it may serve as a rich source of information and inspiration for scholars, supervisors and trainees in our field.

 

1. format

The references are put in alphabetic order; under a same author the references are given chronologically. At the left side of each reference the specific content is indicated by one or two letters: the capital letter refers to the main topic of the publication, the lowercase letter to a secondary content aspect (Occasionally I had to guess on the basis of the title alone; thus there may be some errors in my annotations). You will find the register of topics on page 6 and again on the last page. The bibliography starts with a survey of books (almost) fully devoted to the client-centered and/or experiential approach; they are included again in the reference lists, together with separate chapters from them. The references are presented per language group.

A few references of the 80's and early 90's which have not been included in the previous surveys, are taken up in this bibliography.

3. call for assistance

Although I tried to make the bibliography as complete as possible, I know there must be some gaps. I would be very grateful, therefore, if you would send me references of publications not yet included (especially chapters from books, articles in non-widely spread journals, theses and dissertations, unpublished manuscripts). Corrections of references are also most welcome. These additional references and corrections will all be included in the bibliographical brochure of the next conference. Send them to:
