Abstract

This paper explores the question “What is dialogue?” and its relevance to therapeutic practice through a dialogically-structured conversation between two members of the person-centered community: Akira Ikemi, a leading advocate of focusing; and Mick Cooper, co-author of Working at relational depth in counselling and psychotherapy. The conversation explores the possibility that dialogue may provide a valuable meeting point between the relational and focusing “tribes” of person-centered therapy: a co-explication of felt-senses at both the client’s and therapist’s edges of awareness.
