Client centered therapy worksheet
What is the theory behind this Client centered therapy worksheet?
This worksheet is based on Carl Roger’s client- centered theory that views the therapist as a mere facilitator who helps the client discover the capabilities and resources within themselves that can ultimately empower them to solve their issues.
Rogers has emphasized the three important attitudes that a therapist must adopt in the therapeutic process for it to be truly client centered. These are (1) congruence or genuineness (2) unconditional positive regard and (3) accurate empathetic understanding
How will the worksheet help?
This worksheet will help therapists to analyze their work based on the three personal characteristics that Rogers has deemed crucial for the effectiveness of client centered therapy. It can serve both as a helpful reminder and an opportunity to self-reflect.
How to use the worksheet?
The therapist can use their notes, or session recordings and then reflect on the given questions to determine whether they are able to provide Roger’s specified nurturing conditions to the client for them to be able to resolve their own issues.
