Title

Diagnosing Person-Centered and Experiential Psychotherapy: An analysis of the PCE 2003 programming

Abstract

The 2003 PCE conference program is examined as a distinct sample of the state of person-centered and experiential approaches today. This paper aims to identify eight predominant themes that encompass the PCE 2003 conference programming, differentiate the frequencies of their presence and contributors, and estimate their relative scheduling emphasis through an analysis of the Programme and Abstracts PCE 2003. These themes include the central debate on diagnosis; applications of person-centered and experiential approaches outside of therapy; power and diversity; and extensions to the concept of identity. These themes are then examined and discussed with regard to the role they play in describing the direction of current person-centered and experiential approaches.
