Person Centered Therapy

Code: RD-3000.6500

Programs that specialize in providing therapeutic interventions that are based on the doctrine developed by Carl Rogers that psychotherapy consists of helping people to mobilize their latent psychic resources to resolve their problems. The therapist is nondirective, providing encouragement but not guidance, while the individual explores his or her troublesome attitudes and feelings. The problem is solved when appropriate emotional responses are substituted for inappropriate ones, but the decision about what is appropriate is left to the individual. During therapy, the person comes to understand the problem (though not necessarily its origins) and to plan for its resolution.
