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 piece is about the life of the poor families living in the small villages of Hungary. They live on the doe, and occasional and blackleg working. This is how our players needs to make ends meet somehow. In the reality of the game each person will be really poor for a few hours and going to feel how is it to be in their shoes, and the pressure of being an outcast. The emotional energy will be used to make the opportunity for the participants to experience the tension of sheer day-to-day survival without money, work or other resources.

The residents of the village – played by the participants – get to make decisions. Do they want to become a blackleg worker, would they pay the light bill, would they turn to a loan-shark for money? When a player faces the limited alternatives that the poor have, what social aid is enough for, then they have a chance to turn to solidarity instead of intolerance.

The groups are 10 to 15 people, they represent families of four and they have to survive with these resources for a month. They step on a board, that shows the days of the month, while the actors play the significant villagers: the loan-shark, the policeman, the mayor, who directly speak to the viewers. They have to make decisions on their spendings and incomes, but of course sometimes chance comes into play – just as in real life…
