A Way of Meeting Life
The work of Carl Rogers has been a major creative influence in the human potential movement, from which trans-personal psychology has emerged.

The late Carl Rogers, Ph.D., was involved for over fifty years in understanding and facilitating the process of personality and behavior change in individuals and groups. He was responsible for the development of client-centered therapy, which is non-Freudian in its approach arid depends on the attitude of “unconditional positive regard” in the therapist. He was also a major influence in the development of processes and techniques of group therapy. He authored numerous books, including Client-Centered Therapy, On Becoming a Person, and A Way of Being.
