This book presents ten cases conducted by Carl Rogers, eight of which are fully transcribed. Featuring critical commentaries by notable psychotherapists, the book affords readers the opportunity to read unedited case material by this pioneering — though often overlooked — client-centered therapist, and to compare the responses of therapists from diverse orientations. The cases included represent Rogers' work over a 40-year period with clients with a range of presenting problems. Contributing authors, who include practitioners of psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, gestalt, existential, and spiritual models of psychotherapy, as well as client-centered approaches, comment on the strengths and weaknesses of Rogers' approach to each case and evaluate his theoretical assumptions. In all, the volume both honors Rogers' memory and demystifies his contributions to the field.
