CENTER FOR STUDIES OF THE PERSON

Welcome to Center for the Studies Of the Person we are a face-to-face community of people for whom the Person Centered Approach plays an important role in our personal and professional lives—as a way of Being and of doing. Our commitment is to maintain/build/create an environment where each of us can be heard, where we can be fully ourselves, where we accept and embrace each other as we are.

Person Centered Psychotherapy

Carl R. Rogers developed a profound practice and understanding of psychotherapy. Rogers’ essential insight is that certain qualities of the relationship between therapist and client (or person and person) can be learned and practiced to create an optimal interpersonal climate for personal growth, development, and healing.

La Jolla Program

To know who you are – where you stand, toward what you walk, from whom you run, how you lie. We encounter each other and ourselves during a week together. We try to listen deeply; listen to intriguing stories we might never have guessed about how people are meeting and making their worlds and the inhabitants there. We listen to the stuck places, the delightful, the boring; open for the possibilities  – where can that movement toward freedom take us?

Carl Rogers Memorial Library

The Carl Rogers memorial library is a public resource featuring works by Carl R. Rogers, his contemporaries, students, critics and colleagues, and people who continue in expansion and at least partial reference to the work that Carl Rogers initiated. Works by individuals affiliated with Center for Studies of the Person (CSP) form an important and unique perspective on Humanistic and Person Centered psychology.

CSP Community

The nature of CSP as a face to face community provides members an ample opportunity to engage with one another in a Person Centered way. In this environment members can see for themselves the transforming nature of PCA in its impacts on others and within themselves.

CSP Outreach / Projects

Outreach refers to the ways in which CSP, as a Community and through its individual members, reaches out to and interacts with the wider world. This includes our Events, the Projects of its members, the materials available through the Carl Rogers Memorial Library, and other electronic based programs.
