Carl Rogers is an important figure in the development of the "new" psychology focusing on the self-resourceful individual, and has had tremendous influence on the development of counselling, psychotherapy and personal communication skills as well as on educational philosophy. Many new styles of "humanistic" counselling and therapy owe their debt to Rogers, who made popular the concepts of "“nondirective”, “client-centered” or “person-centered” helping skills.
