Question and answer
explain how person-centred practice can result in positive changes in individual lives
Person-centered therapy (PCT) is also known as person-centered psychotherapy, person-centered counseling, client-centered therapy and Rogerian psychotherapy. [ PCT is a form of talk-psychotherapy developed by psychologist Carl Rogers in the 1940s and 1950s. The goal of PCT is to provide clients with an opportunity to develop a sense of self wherein they can realize how their attitudes, feelings
and behavior are being negatively affected and make an effort to find their true positive potential.[1] In this technique, therapists create a comfortable, non-judgmental environment by demonstrating congruence (genuineness), empathy, and unconditional positive regard toward their clients while using a non-directive approach. This aids clients in finding their own solutions to their problems. Although this technique has been criticized by behaviorists for lacking structure and by psychoanalysts for actually providing a conditional relationship [2] it has proven to be an effective and popular treatment 3.^ Cooper, M., Watson, J.
