Carl Rogers

The PCA is centrally about the quality of relationships and the elements that shape these relationshops.  What is important is that these ideas have practical applications in training sessions so that a person can fully develop their potentials. A great deal of knowledge about communication, coaching, leadership and experiential learning have their roots in this approach.

The approach is characterized by concepts such as trust, empathy, authenticity, quality of presence, respect, acceptance of the other as a person with integrity, and the importance of interpersonal relationship.
