Helping Relationships - Part 2: The Ten Characteristics (1-5)

January 9, 2020

This week, Jai and Deb continue to explore the work of Carl Rogers, diving even deeper into the topic of helping relationships, which Rogers defines as relationships that "other people can use for their own personal growth."

In this episode we discuss the first five out of ten characteristics that Rogers identifies as essential to supporting personal growth in another person. The first five characteristics are:

1) Dependability

2) Congruence

3) Positive Regard

4) Healthy Separateness for Oneself

5) Healthy Separateness for the Other

Join us as we discover together how to form powerful helping relationships!
