On Becoming a PersonA Therapist's View of Psychotherapy

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. The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am then I can changeThis book has helped me through two of the toughest weeks of my life and everyone interested in self improvement should read it On Becoming a Person will appeal to anyone inclined toward psychology or therapy as Rogers does a fantastic job discussing his client centered approach and how his model of therapy transcends the limitations of past psychotherapeutic frameworks Even though the book was first published in 1961 Rogers includes a variety of still relevant techniues such as allowing the client to guide the session and ensuring unconditional positive regard through the therapist s own congruence He incorporates a gamut of psychological principles from areas such as developmental and social psychology and he relates them all back to his thesis on clinical humanistic therapyNot only does Rogers reach out to different branches of psychology but he also connects client centered therapy to education leadership in the work place and family life Even though the book might feel a little repetitive in certain parts it addresses several pertinent uestions like how therapists can reconcile their work with the conducting of research In around 400 pages Rogers dives deep into every facet of psychotherapy and how it relates to humans in generalOverall highly recommended to anyone with even a remote interest in self growth psychology therapy or being a better person As Rogers would say reading On Becoming a Person will not transform you into a perfect version of yourself rather it will set you on the path of creating a accepting and honest self

Ution 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 important. Thought this was a pretty interesting read As a psychology major in college it is somewhat inevitable that some classes will concern themselves with therapy and therapy techniues regardless of whether or not an individual wants to become a therapist and this was where I first encountered the book Nonetheless all information is good and relevant in some way and this book was incredibly interesting to me I graduated am not a therapist and have no interest in becoming a therapist but I still found this book to be enlightening and engaging So much so that I picked it up and continued reading it after we were done with it in class I feel like it was fairly well written and difficult to put down and that the things he wrote about made me re examine some of the things I did and do in my own life and relationships and improve them Carl Rogers work was and is influential in the field and I recommend this read for anybody who is interested in the field of psychology or gaining insight into themselves and others
