Houghton Mifflin, 1961 - 420 páginas
Abstract: A psychotherapist's clinical dealings with personal counseling and interpersonal relationships, from a context of personal experience and learning, is reviewed in a collection of papers designed for professionals in many disciplines. Understanding of person-centered concepts such as self-actualization, individual growth, and personal goals, may lead to lessening of tensions in human relations. The therapeutic relationship facilitates the process of growth and change in a client. Characteristics of helping relationships are described. The therapist expresses his view of how a fully functioning person behaves. Research in client-centered psychotherapy is discussed. Psychotherapy has potential implications for education, interpersonal communication, family life, and personal creativity. Behavioral sciences should play a constructive role in personal development.
