Overview

The celebrated psychologist Carl Rogers left an indelible mark on the entire field of psychotherapy. As the central figure of client-centered therapy, he demonstrated that a therapist could be more than a detached observer. He achieved a rare, remarkable connection with his clients that seemed to encompass intellectual, emotional, and spiritual levels of understanding. Presenting 10 therapy sessions conducted by Rogers\m-\eight of which are fully transcribed\m-\this volume provides an in-depth, critical examination of his work over a 40-year period, shedding light on Rogers' many clinical and theoretical contributions to the field.

The Psychotherapy of Carl Rogers gives readers a unique inside look into Rogers' therapy sessions. Presenting actual cases without edits or revision, this book follows sessions from start to finish with Rogers' exact words, illuminating his reflections, interpretations, self-disclosures, and errors. The selected cases span the period from 1946 to 1986 and represent a range of clients--from those suffering from depression, to those dealing with issues of racism, to an individual who was diagnosed as psychotic. The cases illustrate both the consistency with which Rogers attempted to be a keen and respectful listener and the increasing diversity in his response repertoire over the years.

The book contains no figures.

Editorial Reviews

AHP Perspective (Association for Humanistic Psychology)

"The Psychotherapy of Carl Rogers has much breadth and depth. It allows critics their say along with Rogers' advocates. This book is well crafted, exquisitely thorough, and as respectfully eclectic as one might wish."--AHP Perspective (Association for Humanistic Psychology)
Psychotherapy in Private Practice

"Hallelujah! At least here is a book exploring in depth the therapy of Carl Rogers not only from the person-centered perspective....It is particularly helpful to examine contrasting case conceptualizations of a single therapy case. This feature alone is more than worth the price of the book....The selection of contributors is superior."--Psychotherapy in Private Practice
From the Publisher

"Farber, Brink, and Raskin have compiled a unique and exciting volume. This superbly edited collection of therapy transcripts and associated commentaries helps to consolidate Carl Rogers' legacy to the field and will stimulate critical thinking and discussion for years to come. Therapists of all orientations will appreciate this rich collection of clinical material demonstrating a master clinician at work as well as the stimulating commentaries by leading theorists. The volume will acquaint a new generation of clinicians with Rogers' remarkably prescient thinking and will help to stimulate the type of close attention in academic circles that it so deeply deserves." --Jeremy D. Safran, PhD, Professor and Director of Clinical Psychology, New School for Social Research, New York, NY

"To be deeply heard on an emotional level is a rare, transformative occurrence. My father was such a master listener who created an I-thou relationship with his clients. Witnessing his psychotherapy was to view a man fully open, receptive and present to another human being while holding a deep faith in the actualizing abilities of that person. The book offers a broad range of theoretical analyses of 10 recorded and transcribed cases of Carl Rogers. Although the written word never fully captures the aura, essence or ambience of a therapeutic session, it is important to try to understand what Carl Rogers did--what worked and what didn't work--to create a growthful environment for the client. As we critique and learn from his work we advance the field of psychotherapy." --Natalie Rogers, PhD, author of The Creative Connection
