This review of Person-Centered Therapy covers key concepts including the actualizing tendency, the therapeutic relationship, and limitations of the theory.
This introductory course on Person-Centered Therapy presents an overview of key concepts including background information on Rogerian Theory, principles of the actualizing tendency, the conditions necessary for an effective therapeutic relationship, and some limitations of the person-centered approach.
By the end of the course, the participant will have a basic understanding of Person-Centered Therapy.
The first module of this course provides both an introductory video to the course as a whole, as well as an introduction to person-centered therapy, including background information on the work of Carl Rogers and factors influencing the development of the person-centered approach to therapy.
In the second module, the actualizing tendency will be explored as a foundational concept underlying the therapeutic process from a person-centered perspective. The relationship between self-actualization and self-concept is also discussed.
The third module reviews the six conditions identified by Carl Rogers as necessary for an effective therapeutic relationship. Among these six are three of the most well-known key concepts within person-centered therapy: genuineness, unconditional positive regard, and empathy.
In the fourth module, limitations and criticisms of the person-centered approach to counseling are examined, particularly with respect to multicultural considerations and the ability to apply person-centered concepts across cultures. The course concludes with three (3) quiz questions to review what you have learned.
