Rogers was a Humanistic
Psychologist who is most known for his approach to
psychological treatment and his belief in the genuine good in
the individual. He received his Master's degree in
psychology from Columbia University in 1928 and his doctorate
in 1931. In 1942 he served as the president of the
American Psychological Society.
most respected works include Client-Centered Therapy,
and On Becoming a Person. In these books he
emphasized the power in a non-judgmental attitude and a mutual
respect in the treatment of many of life's problems. He
believed that the client has the answers and the therapist's
job is to lead the client in the correct direction.
Assessment techniques and the therapist's opinion are not
important at all in the treatment of a client.
