about

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."
Carl Rogers(1902-1987) was one of the most influential psychologists in American history. He received many honors, including the first Distinguished Professsional Contributor Award and the Distinguished Scientific Contribution Award of the American Psychological Association.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rogers' Legacy This standard work of Rogers is just mesmerizing to read. It tells you how an effective therapy should be and the whole mechanism of psychotherapy. Rogers lists and thoroughly describes all of his therapeutic concepts with practical examples from his cases. I found these concepts in this book are not only useful in therapeutic settings, but also in daily interpersonal relationships. So I would recommend this book for psychology students as guidelines for effective therapy, as well as for public as a self-help book to improve their relationship with friends and families.
