Carl R. Rogers

Geburtstag: 8. Januar 1902

Carl Ransom Rogers war ein US-amerikanischer Psychologe und Psychotherapeut, dessen herausragende Leistung in der Entwicklung der klientenzentrierten Gesprächstherapie und dem Ausbau der Humanistischen Psychologie besteht. Der von Rogers geschaffene klientenzentrierte Ansatz ist heute u. a. sowohl fester Bestandteil der Gesprächsführung im Rahmen von Therapiegesprächen, als auch in der generellen Gesprächsführung der alltäglichen pädagogischen Arbeit mit Klienten.

Zitate Carl R. Rogers


„TRUST IN ONE’S ORGANISM A second characteristic of the persons who emerge from therapy is difficult to describe. It seems that the person increasingly discovers that his own organism is trustworthy, that it is a suitable instrument for discovering the most satisfying behavior in each immediate situation. If this seems strange, let me try to state it more fully. Perhaps it will help to understand my description if you think of the individual as faced with some existential choice: “Shall I go home to my family during vacation, or strike out on my own?” “Shall I drink this third cocktail which is being offered?” “Is this the person whom I would like to have as my partner in love and in life?” Thinking of such situations, what seems to be true of the person who emerges from the therapeutic process? To the extent that this person is open to all of his experience, he has access to all of the available data in the situation, on which to base his behavior. He has knowledge of his own feelings and impulses, which are often complex and contradictory. He is freely able to sense the social demands, from the relatively rigid social “laws” to the desires of friends and family. He has access to his memories of similar situations, and the consequences of different behaviors in those situations. He has a relatively accurate perception of this external situation in all of its complexity. He is better able to permit his total organism, his conscious thought participating, to consider, weigh and balance each stimulus, need, and demand, and its relative weight and intensity. Out of this complex weighing and balancing he is able to discover that course of action which seems to come closest to satisfying all his needs in the situation, long-range as well as immediate needs.“
