The article features psychotherapist Carl Rogers. The psychotherapeutic method of Rogers, which is unconditional positive regard, is said to have become the universal therapeutic credo from the 1950s to the 1970s. He was the one who popularized the word client, which means independent, self-directed customer looking for service. Rogers did not support the Freudian psychoanalysis and the Skinnerian behaviorism.
