"An enjoyable read if slightly biased toward someone called Carl Rogers. It seems like a comparison in part to the debate between Evolutionists and creationists. Freud et al being on the 'Creationist' whilst behaviourism is on…"
"I have no problems with Carl Rogers. The therapist is important etc. I can't think of an 'off the shelf' therapy that works. I can though think of proven therapeutic interventions that when applied correctly work…"
