This chapter describes the key stages of development of Carl Rogers’s (1902-87) person-centred therapy, including the core conditions and goals of guidance, the role of the counsellor, commonly-used techniques, and the application of this theory in schools. It also encourages (prospective) teachers to reflect on their views on human nature and to involve themselves actively in school counselling work, so as to attain a level of whole person care that embodies ‘pointing the way, imparting knowledge, and resolving problems’.
