Client Centered Therapy

0 Comment

The EFT therapy bears the impression of Rogerian relational functions by including expertise and methods from the area of Gestalt Therapy (Cooper).Charlie O’Leary has specified a classical type of client-centric style for couples and family work. Natalie Rogers has framed a ‘client-centered expressive arts therapy. Peter Schmid has written widely on the development of client-centered group work. Other than that, there have been many endeavors to abstract and develop client-centered methods of working with specific client groups like children and youth and people in distress (Cooper).Off late, there have been experiments on including the thoughts and methods of other orientations into client-centered relational view. In Belgium, for example, Germain Lietaer and companions have been including psychodynamic-interpersonal functions into their client-centered/ experiential work. cognitive-behavioral types of PCT have come into practice. Also, there have been attempts to involve existential and phenomenological methods of working into a person-centered approach (Cooper).According to Turner, a major assumption in all types is that the clients have within themselves the responses to their problems and issues (10). As per the Rogerian approach, no other reservations are necessary. If these six conditions remain for a long period of time, this is fine to continue with the process of positive personality change (Tursi amp. Cochran 387).The abovementioned six assumptions are the relationship attributes of the PCA, called core conditions. Other techniques besides cognitive can be included with a person-centered relational structure.As a clinician, I am not interested in giving directions to my clients. For me, the truevalue lies in not giving directions of any sort to the client by employing directive methods from other therapies.
