  • In the opinion of Dorothea Brandt, author of the famous Becoming a Writer (1981), all writing is autobiographical in one way or another. Hence this book may be seen to represent not only something about its topic, person-centred counselling psychology, but also something about me, as its author. Certainly, the focus of the book evolved from the disparate strands of my own career, firstly as an academic psychologist, then, as a person-centred counsellor, and now as a counselling psychologist.

  • What is counselling psychology? This is a frequent question, both from those who are seeking to understand the work of counselling psychologists and at times from counselling psychologists themselves.

  • Some years ago in one of those all too rare moments of reflection it occurred to me that I was only three lifetimes away from the very beginnings of modern psychology. It is generally agreed, as we will see, that what we call "scientific psychology" began with Wundt's laboratory at Leipzig around 1879. Similarly, applied psychology is seen to have begun with the work of Francis Galton in England at about the same time. A short time later James McKeen Cattell, one of Wundfs first American students received his Ph.D. at Leipzig and went on to work briefly with Galton.

  • One day when I was a student in graduate school, the professor asked the class to discuss whether there was enough culture and race in our counseling psychology curriculum. To my surprise, several classmates claimed that since we had a cross-racial counseling course, there was sufficient attention given to these issues. I countered that, other than the minorities, few students took this course, and voiced my feeling that issues of culture and race needed to be integrated into every class.

  • In my professional life I have been asked many times the simple question: What is transpersonal psychology, counselling or psychotherapy? The answer is straightforward: it is a broad transcultural theory of human nature that posits that human beings are more than physical and psychological beings, with some form of spirituality being a reasonable bet. Oh, and by the way, it is also a discrete field of study that could be conceived as having had about 40 years of academic recognition.

  • More than an accidental injury, more than a serious illness, more than a natural disaster, the trauma of crime victimization goes beyond physical and psychological injury: It robs us of the very faith we have in the human world.

  • As discussed in the Introduction to Volume One, Jennifer Simon, who was at Wiley at the time, was instrumental in convincing me to edit the two-volume reference Handbook on Racial-Cultural Psychology and Counseling. I agreed to take the project through her persistence and encouragement.

It was also her belief that conceptual and research issues combined into one volume with training and practice would not be practical.
