Heavy going and quite a lot of repeated theories.

Interestingly, only that, like all collections of articles and essays, has the problem of being repetitive. However, the clinical cases are well defined and offer excellent support to the theoretical part.

Interessante, soltanto che, come tutte le raccolte di articoli e saggi, ha il problema di essere ripetitivo. Comunque i casi clinici sono ben delineati e offrono un ottimo sostegno alla parte teorica.

Shelves: psychology
I'm inspired by the very human approach Rogers advocates for psychological therapy, education, and society. He would rather have people come together as equals in a co-learning process of growth, than engage in the defeating practice of a hierarchical relationship in which "truth" is transmitted from superior to inferior. This book brings together a variety of essays, book excerpts, and lectures which help survey his work and thought.

Though it can be a bit dry at times, the Rogers Readers is the essential collection of Rogers' thoughts. A must read for any psychology student.

“Não podemos mudar, não podemos nos afastar do que somos, enquanto não aceitarmos profundamente o que somos”
(Carl Rogers)
I really wanted to read more than just bits and pieces of this book, but perhaps I will be more successful on a second attempt. What I did read I found pretty fascinating stuff.

If you want to see Carl in action, this book shows dialog that was recorded. You can acually follow the process. Once again, this is a MUST READ!!!

"Experience is, for me, the highest authority. The touchstone of validity is my own experience. No other person's ideas, and none of my own ideas, are as authoritative as my experience. It is to experience that I must return again and again, to discover a closer approximation to truth as it is in the process of becoming in me." -Carl Rogers, On Becoming a Person
