Publisher's Summary

A profound and deeply personal collection of essays by renowned psychologist Carl Rogers.

The late Carl Rogers, founder of the humanistic psychology movement and father of client-centered therapy, based his life's work on his fundamental belief in the human potential for growth. A Way of Being was written in the early 1980s, near the end of Carl Rogers's career, and serves as a coda to his classic On Becoming a Person. More philosophical than his earlier writings, it traces his professional and personal development and ends with a prophetic call for a more humane future.

Read before On Being

This is the best Rogers book! He details his beliefs, pains, wins and loses. This is his most personal book. I’m a graduate student in psychology and whenever professors gloss over Rogers I cringe because his impact on the field of clinical psychology was huge. In this book he talks about the war against the psychiatrist who were trying to ban psychologists from performing psychotherapy , against Skinner and against the bureaucracy of the APA. He also gives hope and his recommendations for the field.
