This year marks the 20th anniversary of the death of Carl Rogers, an American psychologist and one of the founders of humanistic psychotherapy. He developed a non-directive psychotherapy which he initially called client-centred therapy, his approach radicalised the profession and his contribution is still being felt today.
For almost a quarter of a century, Howard Kirschenbaum, Emeritus Professor in the Department of counselling and human development at the University of Rochester in the States, has been interpreting and researching the life and work of Carl Rogers. He is the author of a soon to be published updated biography entitled The Life and Work of Carl Rogers.
Professor Kirschenbaum talks about the work, influence and legacy of Carl Rogers.
