Role of the therapist’s personality in person-centered psychotherapy.

According to Carl Rogers, unconditional positive regard involves basic acceptance and support of a person, regardless of what the person says or does.  The therapist gives space for the client to express whatever immediate feeling is going on—confusion, resentment, fear, anger, courage, love, or pride.
