Ea aduce în lumină o dublă perspectivă asupra practicii psihoterapeutice: aceea a clientului şi aceea a terapeutului, îngemănate într-un proces de transformare având drept scop devenirea persoanei. Prezintă numeroase cazuri de terapie individuală (cu adulţi şi copii) şi de grup redate verbatim. De asemenea, conturează o nouă perspectivă asupra managementului, educaţiei şi formării viitorilor psihologi practicieni, în care accentul este pus asupra potenţialului individului. În cele din urmă, este formulată o teorie a personalităţii şi a comportamentului pe baza principiilor psihologiei umaniste. Cartea este valoroasă pentru specialist, care se confruntă, citind-o, cu numeroasele exemple ale unei relaţii terapeutice autentice, profund umane. În acelaşi timp, este valoroasă pentru cititorul profan, pentru care psihoterapia poate deveni o cale către autocunoaştere, acceptare de sine şi transformare.Carl R. Rogers (1902–1987) este considerat unul dintre cei mai importanţi şase psihologi ai secolului XX. A fost premiat de către American Psychological Association în 1956 pentru activitatea de pionierat în cercetarea empirică a psihoterapiei şi în 1972 pentru întreaga activitate profesională. Spre sfârşitul vieţii a fost nominalizat la Premiul Nobel pentru Pace. De acelaşi autor, la Editura Trei a mai apărut cartea A deveni o persoană. Perspectiva unui psihoterapeut....

    I'd read bits and pieces of this book over the last 12 months in order to get references for essays. Having those snippets of Rogers' thoughts was useful, but I felt a duty to read from cover-to-cover the foundational work of the person-centred approach if I was serious in training to be a counsellor. So, during the summer break, that's what I've done and found it definitely worthwhile.It took me a while to get through, not because I found it difficult or boring, but because it was thought-provoking and challenging. Many times I've had to put the book down to work through a chain of thought, to reflect upon my own values and ways of being (forgive the in-reference). If I had some of the bricks for an edifice of a person-centred way of being, I think this provides the mortar. Now all I need to do is build something!

    It's probably going to be hard to formulate my thoughts on this material in a consistent and progressive manner. But I'll give it a shot just the same... I'll mainly be outlining what I interpreted as the general gist of the material as well as particular points that felt impacting along with page citations for certain references (wherever I've recorded them).Early on in the preface the reader is faced with Rogers' philosophical roots when he refers to himself as 'a midwife to a new personality.' (x,xi) This quotation is reminiscent of Socrates who once considered himself a midwife to men concerning their souls and self-knowledge. It would only stand to reason that such familiarity with basic considerations of life would go hand in hand with proposing fundamental roots of human behavior and introspection as Rogers attempts to do in this publication. It is not just a formulation of a theory, but (following indications of the full title) is an overview of practice and application of client-centered therapy overall.Rogers is particularly sharp and expressively clear in some of his approaches concerning therapy and philosophy of the therapeutic relationship. That being said, there are some areas where the reader can apprehend that vagaries will be rife and grasping difficult. The major stumbling blocks of this sort appear to be his concepts of "self" and "self-actualization." It should be noted for the author's benefit however that from the beginning he states that he feels words are incapable of capturing the entirety of the therapeutic process and understanding thereof. Therefore, experience should dictate and precede theory as words will always fall short of the full experience. (Preface, 15-17)I already found one of his propositions to resonate well within me from the beginning. It was stated that [American?] culture had become less homogenous; this resulted in fewer "right" answers to be found socially and a greater press for therapy and self-exploration. (4, 192) I've sometimes found myself envious of the strict guidelines held by some cultures. These guidelines for personal and social conduct can make it easier for a person to determine where they fit in to everything without much thought or effort. This is not to assume that problems do not occur everywhere or that there aren't drawbacks inherent in allowing social guidelines to dictate your life, but that with such exaggerated freedom comes a press for individual responsibility and lack of clarity of where one might guide themselves.The entire approach appears to be the clients as experts on themselves. A coalescence of experience and perception is idiosyncratic and private only to ourselves. It is the role of the therapist to reflect (and accept) the expressions of the client with the emotional obfuscation removed. Something that Rogers seemed to hint on but never address completely is that often the thoughts suppressed from consciousness are those that don't fit into the essentially BINARY worldview of the client. It is once they accept all manners of gradient in assessing situations and see themselves as the assessors and judges of all things good and bad with no one thing actually possessing "good" or "bad" elements free from relative assessment that the client moves toward a more self-aware level of relation to the world around them. This is what eventually leads to the easing of tensions that grew from inconsistencies in experience and self-concept. Again, experience is the most direct element of reality we possess (ex. I find myself attracted to the same sex). By contradicting experience with self-concept (I shouldn't be attracted to the same sex [because society, relatives, and religion say so], I can't be attracted to the same sex [because this would render me unlovable], therefore I am NOT attracted to the same sex [because I fear the outcome, whether consciously or otherwise]), anxieties and disconnect with one's self arise.Maybe this approximation is only my own but I found Rogers' view to be similar to that of Zen Buddhism. The "goal" appears to be consistence and congruence of self-concept with the actual self, if it can be so called a "goal" in such an approach as this which attempts to free itself from value-judgments. Zen of course claims to also not be wholly transmitted through words but I would at least approximate it to experiencing experience.The publication is expected to be a bit outdated from the earliest manuscript in the 50s. The research support also seems to be meek, but again, psychology was and can still be considered in its infancy.Back to the concepts of "self" and "self-actualization." The former seems to be a structure of experiential and perceived experiential exposure of the "organism." The words "perceived experiential" exposure here is meant to imply that the experience is not truly the individual's, but an assimilation of outside social assessments of the individual or phenomena the individual may find him or herself experiencing. Self-actualization, from the best I could glean, is the organism's move toward a more positive and consistent wholeness of self-concept and experience. I'm sorry if all this seems vague. The publication itself is not very thorough in these definitions, my own understanding may be lacking, and I must refer once again that Rogers felt that some parts of experience are not adequately captured by words.I don't feel like finishing this review at the moment. I'll come back to it at a later time and add the rest of my understanding as well as personal assessment of the material presented.Update 8-26-15: I'll probably never fully review this at this point. So what I have written so far is all we have. Sorry.

    Grinnell College had about 1200 students and a generally middle-aged faculty devoted to teaching. The younger teachers were there either as visiting instructors or on probation, hoping for regular appointments. The faculty of the Department of Psychology were basically experimentalists, not psychotherapeutically inclined.Thus, when I returned to college newly interested in psychology after being out of it during the 1971/72 year owing to problems with the draft board, there were few classes in the catalog which spoke to my particular interests in the field. Fortunately, two of the new visiting professors, names, but not faces, now forgotten, were psychotherapists and agreed to offer independent and group independent studies on their own particular interests in what was called "humanistic" psychology. I read Roger's CCT in such a context, my second exposure to him, the first having been in an earlier EdPsych class.While I had liked his Freedom to Learn, I found CCT to be very boring after the first sections on at least two accounts. First, Rogers and his coauthors spoke to my own prejudices and weren't challenging. Second, the idea of taking money from clients for the kind of minimalist non-directive therapy they advocated seemed unethical.

    InClient-Centered Therapy: Its Current Practice, Implications and Theory, Carl R. Rogers, Elaine Dorfman, Thomas Gordan, and Nicholas Hobbs, present a synthesis of the basic philosophy of nondirectional counseling. This book exposes the meaning through which personal counseling is achieved through a subtle process of self-realization.Through the integration of commentary on documented therapeutic sessions, the perspective of Dr. Roger’s counseling procedures are subjected to both experimental and scientific analysis. The unfolding of the nondirective attitude contributes to every field of therapy from play to group considerations.This text expresses the deeply held belief that what is genuine and has real meaning cannot sometimes be expressed in words. Nondirective counseling is thought of as a process and experience in a dynamic relationship.More importantly, Dr. Rogers has endeavored to bring the realities of the counseling session – the anxiety, the despair, the hope, and the satisfaction – into the text. Moreover, great consideration is given to the uniqueness of the relationship between client and therapist, culminating in the personal experiences of both.This review could go on for well over twenty pages if I was to cover the most important concepts developed in this book. Therefore, I will stand by my rating and end with two quotes I found to be valuable from the reading.First,“…[C]lient-centered therapy, with the intense focusing upon self which it involves, has as its end result, not more self-consciousness, but less. One might say that there is less self-consciousness and more self…That the self functions smoothly in experience, rather than being an object of introspection. Or as one client states in a follow-up interview one year after the conclusion of therapy: ‘I’m not self-conscious like I used to be…I don’t concentrate on being myself. I just am’” (129).Second, the VIIth proposition from the chapter “A Theory of Personality and Behavior”, “The best vantage point for understanding behavior is from the internal frame of reference of the individual himself” (494).If you are so inclined to “really” read the book (sorry for my transference in this comment, it just appears that some of the reviewers failed to read the book, or grasp its concepts), I would highly suggest that you take your time and understand the last chapter, “A Theory of Personality and Behavior,” as the culmination, or “proof” if you will, about the fundamental soundness of the client-centered approach to counseling.Happy Reading!

    Carl Rogers foi o primeiro psicólogo a gravar sessões psicoterapêuticas, com as devidas permissões, tornando assim possível o estudo objetivo de um processo eminentemente subjetivo. Devido aos seus estudos foi possivel criar-se uma nova abordagem terapêutica denominada "Terapia centrada no cliente / Abordagem centrada na pessoa", cujo processo consiste numa relação não directiva entre psicoterapêuta e cliente de total aceitação pelo terapêuta das emoções, experiências, ideias, valores do último. Devido à criação de um ambiente de liberdade entre os dois, vai ser possivel ao cliente uma evolução de auto-conhecimento e aceitação de si mesmo mesmo e dos outros enquanto pessoas. Neste livo, editado em 1951,Rogers aborda de forma mais técnica, apesar de numa escrita muito simples e clara, a sua visão dos conceitos e técnicas de psicoterapia. Os temas expostos dividem-se em 3 grandes partes: "A visão actual da terapia centrada no cliente", "Aplicações da terapia centrada no cliente" e "Implicações para a terapia psicológia". Nestes temos acesso não só às suas opiniões, como a extractos de sessões terapêuticas que exemplificam as sugestões que propõe ao longo do livro, que são de valor inextimável quando se tenta aprofundar o conhecimento nesta área.Aconselho este livro a todos os que gostem de Psicologia ou estejam interessados em relações terapêuticas. Pessoalmente considerei este livro uma mais valia para a minha formação quer profissional quer enquanto pessoa.

    I was a goodreads first reads winner of "Asses and Angels:A journey from Abuse to Achievement. It's the incredible story of the author Gail Black's life, and her ability to brush herself down and carry - not a mean feat - and not one that everyone can do. She suffered abuse, from religious to financial, physical, emotional and verbal abuse.This truly is a "must" read.

    Essential reading for me right now, I love Carl Rogers but am feeling a little bogged down by his language in this book. Matbe it's just the look of the copy I have- it's a really old, musty copy I got for $1 from the school library sale a while back. I love Carl Rogers' ideas, though, and I find it really validating to read about his work with clients.

    I really like Carl Rogers' approach to therapy, but I was hoping for more technique from the book. It was mostly research practices and some great client perspectives, but not a lot for someone who wants to learn about /doing/ this type of therapy other than the awesome base philosophy. Still looking for the right book.
