About Person Centered Psychotherapy
Person-Centered Psychotherapy is a humanistic and phenomenological approach based on the ideas developed by Carl Rogers, his associates, and later followers of this Approach. We sincerely believe that each person has within himself or herself all the resources, strength, and power to promote their changes towards healing, new insights, and development. The psychotherapist’s role is to provide the client with the necessary conditions for growth to occur. Therefore, a psychotherapist strives to ensure a safe and trustworthy interpersonal relationship so that a client may discover and establish their path to self-determination.
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. In this course, we will be learning through our own experience, reflection, and practice. Participants will learn to enhance possibilities for their own change.
