Discriminative Aspects of the Rogers' Propositions for the Validation of Change in the Client

Gérard Mercier

Testifying the move of the client such that “he is tending towards a state of a more comprehensive internal agreement” is doubly advantageous [1]. For the client himself, this understanding has given him a “nearly latest improved looping of empowerment (...) by the production of himself by himself” [2]. As for the therapist often challenged to “justify the worthiness and the effectiveness of psychotherapy in general or one of its methods as a way to better understand and use a psychotherapeutic method (commonly associated with its academic background), or even as a rigorous way of studying motivations and conditions of the psychotherapeutic effect” [3]. Understanding this integration and reunion mechanism, very well balanced and finely-shaded, and identifying in it significant milestones and precipitates is the focus of this article which a clinical illustration will be used to illustrate. I will show here that among 19 propositions of the personality and behavior theory laid down by Rogers, the nineteenth is a solid result for the validation of indicators from the clinic.
