Miracle Of We – Rogers Interviews Elaine

Recently, when I was at the Center for the Studies of the Person I had the opportunity to go through our files and I randomly pulled out a folder with a transcript of Carl Rogers interviewing Elaine. I started to scan it. My intent was to just get a quick sense of a counseling session that Carl might have had back then.  Despite not always being able to follow the dialogue I got pulled into it. There is Elaine and I picture her as a young teen in this psychiatric ward, confused, alone and scared.  The time just slipped by and I read all 22 pages of the interview. What follows are small snippets’ of the conversation and some of my reactions.
