Meador on Healthcare
Despite escalating expenditures and remarkable advances, Americans seem to be expressing their distrust of the health care system at higher and higher levels. I believe that patients are missing, longing for, the feeling of being given the sort of care that comes with rich human contact. They want to feel as though they as individuals are more important than the system. Modern medicine has unknowingly created quite a dilemma for itself. In its highly admirable race to find cures for all sorts of diseases, it has let its patients down in a very personal and important way. Patients want to believe that they are highly valued as individuals. If that is not their perception, then let’s change that. We have a lot of good people providing health care and we have the psycho-social tools to help them be more effective healers.
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. In this course, we will be learning through our own experience, reflection, and practice.
