Person Centered/Rogerian

Person Centered / Client Centered / Rogerian Psychotherapy was Developed by:  Carl Rogers

 

Overview:  The Person Centered Approach was "originally described as non-directive, this therapy moved away from the idea that the therapist was the expert and towards a theory that trusted the innate tendency (known as the actualising tendency) of human beings to find fulfilment of their personal potentials." ~Excerpt from British Association for the Person-Centered Approach

 

"At the heart of this approach is the basic trust in human beings and in the movement of every organism toward constructive fulfilment of its, his, or her possibilities (from Carl R. Rogers. Way of Being. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1980, p.117). Rogers stated that 'Individuals have within themselves vast resources for self-understanding and for altering their self-concepts, basic attitudes, and self-directed behaviour; these resources can be tapped if a definable climate of facilitative psychological attitudes can be provided.' (from Carl R. Rogers. Way of Being. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1980, p.115-117). Rogers pointed to three core conditions as providing a growth-promoting climate.  These core conditions are: congruence, unconditional positive regard and empathy.  He believed that when these core conditions are provided, movement in a constructive direction will occur in the person receiving these conditions." ~Excerpt from British Association for the Person-Centered Approach
