Person centred practice is where all service users should be treated as individuals and their care that they require and support needs should reflect this. Each and every service user will have specific individual needs and their care plans and support should be tailored to suit their needs. By seeing the person as an individual and recognising their diversity puts the individual at the centre of their care. Person centred practice is not only about supporting people with their individual support needs and care but also about getting to know the person, what their likes and dislikes are, what makes them happy and bring them joy, knowing what their values are, family situations, social circumstances and lifestyles.
Person-centred nursing is widely practised in clinical areas today, the original concept was developed from the work of psychologists such as Carl Rogers and Tom Kitwood. Rogers (1957.1961) considered empathy and unconditional positive regard to be core features of any therapeutic relationship in counselling. He developed the concept of person-centred therapy in counselling. Stein-Parbury (2009) writes about the use of interpersonal skills in nursing and places a focus on Roger’s model of person-centred therapy. She states that person-centred nursing models have been influenced by the work of Rogers.

1.0. Introduction What does one understand by the word ‘person’ or the concept ‘personhood’? Socrates questioned it and so did Plato and also the later generations of philosophers and thinkers; all have encountered the concept of ‘personhood’ as an existential crisis in the intellectual journey of the human race. The socio-political-philosophical reflection upon the issues such as ‘injustice’, ‘dignity’ and ‘human rights’ in the Slave Narratives makes the question of ‘personhood’ a very prominent existential and intellectual crisis which is still being pondered about in various forms and colours.

This paper addresses the vexed issue of organizational leadership with emphasized on the irrational model and the self-concept based theory. Adopting methodological triangulation, our data collection method included the questionnaire and interview. The result of analysis shows that leadership bedeviled with irrationality and self-aggrandizement is cancerous to organizational growth and development. The study therefore recommends that team work and clan culture of communication in tandem with organizational goals and values, should be the ultimate anchor point of organization leaders.
Perspective and Summary Perspective The above research conclusions support the following perspective regarding counselling clients with substance abuse problems. Counsellors, to be effective, first must have the ability to develop an open, collaborative relationship with clients wherein clients perceive trust and commitment. Carl Rogers identifies, and research supports, this ability as related to the counsellor’s skill in conveying, in interaction with clients, unconditional positive regard and empathic understanding (Austin, 1999). Within this relationship, the counsellor must provide focus for the process by addressing the client's presenting problems directly and identifying client need for change.
Evaluating person-centred practice It has been recognised that while there is a lot of emphasis onproviding care that is person-centred, translating the core concepts into professional practice is challenging, with few research studies reported that evaluate the caring outcomes that may arise from PCN (McCormack & McCance 2006). This has been further compounded by the lack of valid instruments within the literature that go some way to measuring elements of person-centred practice (Traynor & Wade 1993, Adams et al. 1995, Coyle & Williams 2001). The measurement of caring, however, has faired somewhat differently, with a proliferation of instruments reported in the literature that aim to measure caring in nursing. The Caring Dimensions Inventory
Self-Perception Theory Daryl Bem created the self-perception theory in 1960 Daryl called it “the theory of attitude formation(citation). According to the self-perception theory, we interpret our very own actions. The manner we interpret others’ actions, and our movements. Are frequently socially inspired and no longer produced out of our very own free will, as we might assume(citation).
In a clinical environment, person centred care is an essential approach in order to achieve the best outcomes for the patients individual needs. Person centred care involves taking a holistic approach to healthcare in which multiple factors such as age, beliefs, spirituality, values and preferences are taken into consideration when assessing, treating and caring for a patient (Epstein & Street 2011). It enables the patient to have a more interactive and collaborative approach in their healthcare, share responsibility and maintain their dignity and values. It involves a bio-psychosocial perspective to healthcare as opposed to a biomedical attitude. In order to provide patient centred care, the clinician needs to consider the individual’s needs
Demonstrating ‘respect for patients’ values, preferences and expressed needs,’ is one of the eight dimensions of person centred care outlined by the Picker Institute (ref). Morgan and Yoder (2012) described ‘respectful care’ as being an attribute of person centred and while the author does not disagree with this idea of ‘respectful care’ being inherent to person centred care, the author believes that Slater (2006) more accurately describes dignity and respect as being antecedents of person centred care. These antecedents drive respect of personal values, individual needs and decisions, a consequence of which is an improved therapeutic relationship and health outcomes. The author considers this view of dignity, compassion and respect as antecedents
