Speaker: Dr. Howard Kirschenbaum is the author of The Life and Work of Carl Rogers. He is Professor Emeritus and former chair of Counseling and Human Development at the Warner Graduate School of Education at the University of Rochester, in New York. Dr. Kirschenbaum is the author of more than 20 books on education, counseling, and history. He is a recognized expert on Carl Rogers, having written the earlier biography On Becoming Carl Rogers; he was also co-editor of the Carl Rogers Reader and Carl Rogers Dialogues, and the writer and producer of the DVD Carl Rogers and the Person-centered Approach. But probably even more important is the fact that Dr. Kirschenbaum was a respected, and trusted colleague of Carl Rogers..
Among other things, Rebecca Daniel-Burke asks the following questions:
- Didn't you write what was considered the definitive biography of Carl Rogers 30 years ago? What is different about this one?
- How has Rogers' work--the person-centered approach to counseling and psychotherapy--been faring in the U.S. and around the world in recent years?
- Were you surprised by anything you learned about Rogers personally in writing the new biography?
- What has more recent research on counseling and psychotherapy revealed about the effectiveness of the person-centered approach?
