Course description and syllabus

Carl Rogers is an important figure in the development of the "new" psychology focusing on the self-resourceful individual, and has had tremendous influence on the development of counselling, psychotherapy and personal communication skills as well as on educational philosophy. Many new styles of "humanistic" counselling and therapy owe their debt to Rogers, who made popular the concepts of "“nondirective”, “client-centered” or “person-centered” helping skills.


Nevertheless, he is not mentioned in most hypnotherapy and NLP courses as well as many counselling and psychotherapy courses which may include outlines of such figures as Freud, Jung and Adler but not Rogers.


If you have not been acquainted with Rogers' ideas before now, now is the time to fill that gap in your professional and intellectual education. If you just have a general interest in psychology, ideas and people, this course will give you much to ponder.


This certificate course comprises studies of a representative selection of the written works of Carl Rogers, including the following:

  • Fascinating autobiographical material,

  • The nature of therapeutic relationship,

  • The concept of the person,

  • Theory and scientific research,

  • Rogers' view of education,

  • The nature of the helping professions

  • Rogers and social psychology.

Rogers has been called “the most influential psychologist in American history”. The unit not only provides an ideal overview of his work, but students already acquainted with Rogers’ approach will find much diverse material to increase their wider appreciation of this giant of humanistic psychology.


Entry Criteria:  Open entry.

Suitability: This course is offered for professional development purposes or for personal interest.


Successful graduates will receive the Certificate in the Humanistic Psychology of Carl Rogers awarded by UK College of Holistic Training which is a private UK qualification. The college is accredited by the International Association for Distance Learning.

Course accrdited for professional development purposes by ACCPH (see links in left-hand column).
