Offer expires 30th September 2002

`I found myself fascinated, riveted by the accessibility of the prose and format, and, most importantly, splendidly re-engaged with the person-centred approach... The book will prove most useful to practitioners and students of the person-centred approach to counselling, but those from other orientations might also be agreeably surprised by its depth and by Mearns', dare I say, analytical approach to his subject. I found his style of writing intelligent and clearly set out and, whilst thoroughly academic, it included lots of good clinical evidence and cameos... there is nothing vague or highly idealised, but rather a set of clear thinking, rigorous chapters that make it a most worthwhile addition to the current counselling literature' - Self & Society

Crucial areas such as the therapeutic alliance and process, the development of the counsellor and the person-centred perspective in relation to psychopathology are examined in this volume.

An introduction focuses on the importance of training in depth, expressing caution about adopting the more advanced methods illustrated in the book without rigorous preparation, and provides a summary of the central features of person-centred counselling. Following on from this, the volume's 30 sections are organized into six categories, each of which will help practising counsellors improve their skills within the person-centred approach.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.

Make A Difference

At Campus Book Rentals our company is guided by a single question, "How are we making education more affordable?" We know that getting a college education is quickly becoming a rite of passage for students and is becoming more important every year. In order to make education more attainable for the 99%, we started renting textbooks so students could avoid high purchase prices and buyback programs. We know it's a better way, and we're going to show everyone how to make a college education affordable again.
