Client centered therapy

A school of therapy developed by Carl Rogers in the 1940’s and 1950’s. It is a non-directive, humanistic form of therapy, in which the client takes responsibility for his/her own healing, living in the present, and talking about situations and feelings; the therapist does not offer suggestions but rather listens and mirrors what the client has expressed, encouraging further exploration. In Client Centered therapy, the therapist assists the client by creating an accepting atmosphere that supports the client in his/her understanding. The therapist is involved in helping the client clarify, understand, and “own” his/her actions; individual personal experience defines this therapy. As compared to non-directive, client centered therapy, the actions of the therapist in directive therapy would include asking questions, offering treatments, and making interpretations and diagnoses.
