Roots of the person-centered approach

The person-centered approach – which is mostly known by the outstanding American humanistic psychologist, Carl Rogers – has had great effect on the helping professionals worldwide, the method how mental patients are healed, practice of pedagogy, ideas about effective leadership style, patient-doctor relationship, and the life of the individual.

At 1984 and 1986 a one-week long person-centered workshop took place with roaring success, with the assistance of Carl Rogers and his coworkers. The event organised for the occasion of 25th anniversary created a tradition.

With the help of the hungarian and of other nationalities facilitators create an opportunity first of all practical learning. A lot of there to learn from books about the person-centered approach, but to truly master it, you need personal experience. There is an unique chance to acquire such a personal experience.

What is a person-centered group?

One of the main characteristic of the person-centered groups that the members meet between minimal frames, quite freely: through showing their doubts, fears, recognising, admitting and expressing their emotions. There are no “leaders”, but facilitators, who stimulate the group process, but also they are also participants. These intensive group experiences help us to get closer to ourselves and to each other, to recognise the similar in the other, but to learn to disagree in peace.

Besides the freely unfolding small and big group self-knowledge experiences there are so-called theme-groups, that we use to work on the root societal tension, the challenges of the helping professionals, the path-finding of the individual.

All participants may apply as facilitator or theme-group leader.

The pandemic effected our possibilities in this regard too: our usual place – the Szántó dormitory – is not available this year.

Our new choice, the Szalay László dormitory is located 4 kms from our venue. It is divided into blocks. One block contains two double bedrooms, a shared kitchen, bathroom and toilet. It has basic facilities: fresh lining for the beds, liquid soap, toilet paper and WIFI access (ask for it at the reception).

You must bring your own towels and – if you wish so – pots and other utensils for cooking, etc.

The dormitory does not provide meals.

You can check out some pictures of the dormitory HERE.

Since these prices are a little higher, compared to our previous option, please, let us know what you choose! You can vote clicking HERE. (Use your full name, please!)

Please, also let us know – ccchungary@gmail.com – if you DO NOT want us to arrange accommodation all week for you!

Attention! We can only reserve your accommodation at the dormitory if you let us know in time. Thank you!

You can only pay for the reserved dormitory accommodation at our venue, during registration, in cash. (Please, bring change, if possible!)

Each night there we can gather socialize at dormitory’s yard. Please note: there are no benches there, so bring blankets, mattress, etc. to sit on.

Since the dormitory is a little bit away from our venue, it might be a good idea to bring a bike (there is limited storage facility at the dormitory for about 10-15 bikes), organize shared rides, etc.

It takes about 30 minutes to get to the venue by public transportation. Check out the map HERE.

August 17 - August 23, 2020



There will be no formal reception on Monday this year. Instead, we will have an opening ceremony: a short formal opening followed by a group music session. (Snack and non-alcoholic drinks.)

You can buy meals – lunch and dinner – from the Laterum Restaurant at the price of HUF 1200 / meal. (You can only pay for this during registration.)

You can ask for vegetarian and vegan meals too. They can not provide paleo meals. If you have some food allergies, they can prepare á la carte meals, which you must pay at the restaurant individually.
