Genre: Psychology

Wie wirkt sich die Anwendung des nicht-direktiven, personenzentrierten Ansatzes auf uns Menschen aus? Welchen Einfluss haben die Elemente dieses Selbstkonzepts auf unser Miteinander, sowohl in der Therapie als auch in der Dynamik von Gruppen? Mit persönlichen Gedanken, Erfahrungen und Fallvignetten bringt Carl Rogers seine angestrebte lebensbejahende Daseinsform zum Ausdruck: Der Mitbegründer der Humanistischen Psychologie zeigt, was ein ausgeprägter Gemeinschaftssinn, aufgeschlossene zwischenmenschliche Kommunikation und Authentizität systemverändernd für Erziehung, Politik und unser Zusammenleben bedeuten. Den hier versammelten Aufsätzen liegt eine bestimmte Auffassung von der menschlichen Natur zugrunde: Es ist die Überzeugung, dass der menschliche Organismus, das einzelne Mitglied der Spezies Mensch, in seinen Tendenzen im Kern konstruktiv ist. In einem wachstums- und entwicklungsfördernden psychologischen Klima können diese Potentiale freigesetzt werden.

Ernest Lash, ein junger Psychoanalytiker aus San Francisco, glaubt an die Wirksamkeit seines Tuns, ist aber andererseits davon überzeugt, daß die klassischen Therapien dringend einer Erneuerung bedürfen. Eines Tages beauftragt ihn die Ethikkommission seines Fachbereichs mit der Untersuchung eines prekären Falls: Er soll die Arbeitsweise eines älteren, sehr berühmten Kollegen namens Seymour Trotter überprüfen, der angeklagt ist, ein Verhältnis mit einer vierzig Jahre jüngeren Patientin gehabt zu haben. Trotter beharrt darauf, daß Sex das einzige Mittel gewesen sei, um die junge Frau vor ihrem selbstzerstörerischen Verhalten zu retten. Zunächst ist Ernest entrüstet. Doch je mehr er sich mit der Sache beschäftigt, desto mehr fasziniert ihn die Idee, jedem Patienten bzw. jeder Patientin eine fallspezifische Behandlung zuteil werden zu lassen.
