Importance of Empathy in Counseling (03:38)

FREE PREVIEW

Carl Rogers discusses listening to clients attentively, picking up on their feelings and emotions, and reflecting those feelings back to them. Recording interviews helped him improve his therapeutic skills.

Non-Directive Therapy (02:41)

For years, Rogers focused on the content of therapist responses, rather than empathic listening quality. This was misinterpreted as a technique of reflecting client feelings. Positive regard and therapist congruence promote growth in the client-counselor relationship.

Trends toward Self-Directed Therapy (02:26)

Research shows a high degree of empathy helps bring about client change and learning. Rogers lists different therapy approaches where therapists are considered experts manipulating situations. There has been a pushback to empower clients to create change.

Using Empathic Listening (02:32)

Rogers outlines Gene Gendlin's approach to therapy of using appropriate words and phrases to reveal internal client experience and provides an encounter group example.

Applying Empathy in a Counseling Setting (02:44)

Rogers discusses entering the client's private perceptual world, being sensitive to changing felt meanings flowing in them, temporarily living in their lives, and acting as a confident companion. The counselor must lay aside their own values and prejudices.

Research Findings on Empathy (05:16)

Empathy is a key variable in the success of a counseling course; is associated with therapeutic process and movement; can be measured early on in a client-counselor relationship; and experienced and psychologically mature therapists offer higher degrees of empathy.

Counselor Empathy Study (02:34)

Six experienced therapists submitted interviews typical of their work to Raskin, who elicited reviews from 83 therapists. The degree of empathic quality varies in those relationships; only two correlated positively with the therapeutic ideal.
