re Study Raises Questions on Counselling

This is my first attempt to post to this group and this blog.

I thought that the issue of whether certain forms of counselling can be harmful was interesting and very relevant to a person centred group. My own view would be that straying from a non-judgemental and non-advice giving position will almost always lead to negative dynamics.Rogers was the Zen master of counselling precisely because he understood the simplicity of the healthy counsellor/counselee relationship and that less is more.

This is really one of our (PCA) strengths - not harming being a kind of unspoken by-product/obverse of what we do do.
