The purpose of this paper is to discuss the theories of Carl Rogers (Rogers, 1961, 1980) as they relate to therapeutic change and the counseling process. To this end, the paper first presents a transcript of a person-centered counseling session conducted with a 50 year old woman who expressed feelings of restlessness, boredom, and lack of peace following her last son moving out of the family home and going to college. The second part of the paper presents a reflective essay formulated on the therapeutic counseling session and the Rogerian notions and concepts related to the session.
From the Paper:"I have gradually come to one negative conclusion about the good life. It seems to me that the good life is not any fixed state. It is not, in my estimation, a state of virtue or contentment or nirvana or happiness. It is not a condition in which the individual is adjusted or fulfilled or actualized. The good life is a process not a state of being. It is a direction, not a destination."
