jc discussion #2
As one can see in the Dr. Boeree article, Carl Rogers was brought up in a Christian home, but lost his Christian faith while in seminary. However, in looking at some of the concepts advocated in his humanistic theory, one can see a reflection of his Christian upbringing in it. The difference becomes reliance on self rather than God to achieve those concepts.
- Download and read the Carl Rogers biography by Dr. Boeree.
- Consider how the three Rogers’ humanistic concepts (genuineness, unconditional positive regard, and empathic understanding) may reflect Christian values.
- Do you agree that these three concepts reflect Christian values? Why or why not?
