psychologist, known for his development of new
methods of therapy. Rogers obtained his doctorate
from Columbia University in 1931, and by that
time was already involved in work with abused
children. He later taught at Ohio State
University (1941-45) and the universities of
Chicago (1945-57) and Wisconsin (1957-61).
Dissatisfied with current therapeutic and
diagnostic techniques, he founded what is now
known as client-centered therapy,
"client" meaning "patient".
This method stresses the relationship between
therapist and client and the client's use of this
relationship to guide the course of therapy.
Rogers's techniques predominate today in
psychotherapy in the U.S.
