Rogers in China: Post-traumatic growth in the aftermath of disaster

Rogers in China: Post-traumatic growth in the aftermath of disaster
-

Can Carl Rogers' person centred approach offer any assistance to working in areas of trauma?

He travelled to China in 1922 at the age of 20 and his journey seemed pivotal in his own personal development and beliefs in the significance of an appropriate relational climate and human's capacity for self-actualisation. He later suggested that this relational environment had to be facilitated by the core conditions of empathy, warmth and genuineness which would then enable people to grow and change in beneficial ways. Having been positively influenced by his cross-cultural experiences in China in the initial stage of his life I would suggest that the person-centred approach can even now be integrated into our ways of relating and be for everyone's benefit.
