Rogers believed that in order for a person to gain self-acceptance, they would have to feel unconditionally accepted by others. He also believed that certain conditions must take place before a person could reach their full potential in life or self-actualization. The person-centered approach is actually the term used outside of therapy; within therapy it is called the client-centered approach. The person-centered approach is defined in Cloninger (2012) as: “Rogers’s orientation to therapy and education, which focuses on the experience of the client or student rather than the therapist or teacher”. Rogers’s concept of process proposes that at higher levels of development, people become more spontaneous in discovering and accepting
When the therapist is able to show an empathetic understanding of what the client is experiencing, it helps the client have a better inner understanding as well. • Unconditional positive regard – Therapists must always maintain a positive and non-judgmental view of their clients.

Chapter 1 INTRODUCTION Situational Analysis Self- concept and self- esteem are two psychological terms that are very important and commonly used interchangeably because it is important to know on how we see yourself honestly and to like or at least accept yourself, and the internal barriers that keep you from doing your best to achieve success and happiness. Self -concept or self -image is the sum total of all the knowledge and information a person has of himself. It includes factors like your gender, name, personality, physical appearance, race, likes and dislikes, beliefs, values, social history, nationality, schooling, family, career, accomplishments, failures, skills and talents.

Additionally, Holden will need to keep writing about his feelings to keep in touch with our therapists. In my personal opinion I do not believe that Holden requires any type of medication to cure his depression. Furthermore, another part of his depression was the fear of disappearing.

In the film, we see that Helen has hypersomnia an example of this would be when she woke up from her sleep thinking it was still morning and wondering why Julia (her daughter) hadn't gone to school, not realizing that it was 4PM (Nettelbeck. S, 2009). Another symptom seen in the movie mentioned in the DSM-5 as symptom seven of criteria (A) is “feelings of worthlessness or excessive or inappropriate guilt (which may be delusional) nearly every day (not merely self-reproach or being sick)” (Butcher, Hooley & Mineka, 2014). She feels so guilty that she wanted to keep her illness away from her daughter and has a rage when she finds out that David told her daughter, Julia. The level of worthlessness and guilt Helen had was bad that she chose to move out and stay with Matilda.
The specific habits which were likely to hold Helen Keller back, or which she was prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include: Being excessively egocentric or proud, needing personal recognition and applause, wanting to be center stage all the time, needing to be important and special.

Person-Centered Theory Human nature (assumption) Person-Centered Theory (PCT) is a theory that develops by an American Psychologist in 1930s which is Carl Rogers. Person-Centered Theory is an approach to counselling and psychotherapy that places much of the responsibility for the treatment process on the client, with the therapist taking a nondirective role. According to Carl Rogers, he stated that a person needs an environment that provides them with genuineness, acceptance and empathy (Saul McLeod 2014). Next, Rogers believed that every person can achieve their goals, wishes and desires in life when self-actualization took place (Saul McLeod 2014). Besides, Rogers maintained that people behave as they do because of the way they perceive
The client-centered model, also sometimes referred to as person-centered, was developed by Carl Rogers around the middle of the twentieth century. Rogers was a humanistic psychologist who believed that how we live in the here-and-now and our current perceptions are more important than the past. Person-centred therapy is rooted in the client 's capacity for awareness and his or her ability to make decisions (Corey, 1986). It the purpose of each person to seek congruence (balance) in three areas of their lives. This balance is achieved with self-actualization which deals with three areas such as self-worth, self-image, and ideal self.
My Self-Concept My self-concept includes a number of different adjectives and roles, these include both good and bad things. The adjectives I use to describe myself are as follows: kind, loyal, selfish, hard working, apathetic, practical, honest, occasionally rude, and procrastinator.

One specific example of an action that affects someone’s self-concept would be social comparisons.
