Client Centered Therapy

Dr. Avinash De Sousa

Abstract :

Client-centered therapy, also called the person-centered approach, describes Carl

Rogers’ way of working with persons experiencing all types of personal disturbances or problems in living. As early as 1939, Rogers developed his theory of psychotherapy with troubled children, and went on to expand his theoretical approach to include work with couples, families, and groups. Over his long career, Rogers extrapolated client-centered values to the education, marriage, group encounter, personal power, and conflict resolution. Today, the person-centered approach is practiced in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Greece, Portugal, Demark, Poland, Hungary, The Netherlands, Italy, Japan, Brazil,

Mexico, Australia, and South Africa, as well as here in the United States and Canada. A world association, which can be contacted online, was founded in Lisbon in 1997 that reflects the growth and vitality of the approach entitled the World Association for Person-Centered and Experiential Psychotherapy and Counseling (WAPCEPC). The present chapter describes the basic tenets of client centered and its applications in day to day clinical practice.
