On Becoming a Person

On Becoming A Person

Carl Rogers


The late Carl Rogers, founder of the humanistic psychology movement, revolutionized psychotherapy with his concept of “client-centered therapy.” His influence has spanned decades, but that influence has become so much a part of mainstream psychology that the ingenious nature of his work has almost been forgotten. A new introduction by Peter Kramer sheds light on the significance of Dr. Rogers’s work today. New discoveries in the field of psychopharmacology, especially that of the antidepressant Prozac, have spawned a quick-fix drug revolution that has obscured the psychotherapeutic relationship. As the pendulum slowly swings back toward an appreciation of the therapeutic encounter, Dr. Rogers’s “client-centered therapy” becomes particularly timely and important.

One of the wisest books ever written

This book is like having a great friend at home. Once you understand what Rogers is talking abut when he describes personal growth, dealing with difficult emotions and “the good life” (self-actualization), you can keep it handy to get plenty of support for your deeper psychological processes.

Most useful works in psychotherapy!

I am currently rereading this book and find new insights and new ways that his careful, thoughtful, gentle, and intelligent style is informing my own work with my patients. Unlike writers in this field, he is simple, straightforward, clear, and never so arrogant as to say ‘This is the right way’ but only ‘This is the way I see it, or have found it to be.’

All you need to know about Rogers

I haven’t finished the book yet, but so far so good. This is a good summary of the life and influence of Carl Rogers on psychology and public attitudes toward psychology and personality, for good and for ill. Found Rogers work very interesting. A good read as an insight into person centered therapy. Very gripping and insightful.
