Carl Rogers Control Freak from the Author: Kevin Everett FitzMaurice. This book is about the work of Carl Rogers, not the life of Carl Rogers. The personal problems Carl Rogers had with alcohol and his marriage have nothing to do with his counseling method. This brief book focuses on the method of counseling that he invented.Method and technique are not to be confused with counseling theory. A counseling theory is a set of guiding principles that structure the course of counseling. A method or technique is a strategy for eliciting a response from a client. Counseling theories therefore provide general directions for achieving specific goals, while methods or techniques are specific strategies for promoting a change or curative response from a client.Carl Rogers gave the counseling world its most effective, efficient, and advanced method. Unfortunately, Rogers feared to face the true nature of his method and buried it under false philosophy and theory that diametrically opposed it. Rogers' betrayal of his method has led to a corruption of his method, causing it to be diluted, at best, and in many cases lost. We must separate the theory of Carl Rogers from the method of Carl Rogers to resurrect and preserve his superior method.This book will help you discover the true nature of the method. But ultimately, you must work this out for yourself. You must again watch the videos of Rogers at work. You must again analyze his method. You must experiment and test until you are certain, from your own examination, what the nature of the method is. If you wish to debate Rogers' theories, then you are missing the point: The Rogerian Method works wonders and needs to be salvaged and seen for what it is, separate from all theory and philosophy.

Theories Of Counseling And Psychotherapy from the Author: Elsie Jones-Smith. This text offers an extensive array of theories, including all the mainstream approaches as well as contemporary ones such as narrative, feminist, and post-modern. The author provides an integrative framework that allows students to assess the various theories with respect to possible clinical application. By comparing and contrasting the theories, as well as analyzing strengths and weaknesses of each, students will learn to apply them more flexibly in practice. The book is divided into four major theoretical forces in psychotherapy and introductory sections are provided to help students place a particular theory within a major theoretical period. The four theoretical forces discussed are: (1) psychoanalytical and psychodynamic; (2) behavioral and cognitive school(s); (3) existentialism and humanism; and (4) social constructivism school of psychotherapy. The author discusses social constructivism and then describes at least five theoretical approaches within this theoretical force--solution-focused therapy, narrative therapy, strengths-based therapy, and so on.

Carl Rogers from the Author: Brian Thorne. As founder of the person-centred approach, Carl Rogers (1902-1987) is arguably the most influential psychologist and psychotherapist of the 20th century. This book provides unique insights into his life and a clear explanation of his major theoretical ideas. This Third Edition is co-authored by Brian Thorne and Pete Sanders, leading person-centred practitioners and bestselling authors. Pete Sanders contributes a new chapter on "The Ongoing Influence of Carl Rogers", covering topics such as research, the emerging tribes in person-centred tradition, and its interaction with the medical profession. Brian Thorne draws on his experience of having known and worked with Rogers to beautifully describe the way in which Rogers worked with clients and from that, to draw out the practical implications of what is, in effect, a functional philosophy of human growth and relationships. In the twenty years since the first edition of Carl Rogers appeared, the book has continued to provide an accessible introduction for all practitioners and students of the person-centred approach.

On Becoming A Person from the Author: 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.
