Abstract

"Carl Rogers established the Person-Centered Approach (PCA), which was first known as ‘non-directive therapy’ and then as ‘client-centered therapy.’ The approach which depends on direct psychological contact between the client and counselor is based on the three core conditions; congruence, positive regard, and empathy. In the PCA each individual is seen as having a strong tendency for self-actualization (to grow, develop and achieve his/her maximum potential). The terms ‘self-actualization’ and ‘self-awareness’ can be misunderstood in Islamic society where individuals’ needs and decisions are based on the needs of the whole society. Many who are attracted to the PCA would not consider applying it, or a modification of it, in an Arab and/or Islamic society. However, remarkable positive similarities were found when reviewing Rogers’, Arab and Islamic literature. The aim of this book is to explore the possibility of applying a modified person-centered counseling approach (PCA) as a nondirective way of helping and supporting Muslim clients in the state of Qatar. Non-directive counseling is considered a new method, not only in Qatar, but in the Middle East as a whole. This study examines the feasibility of applying a modification of the PCA in Qatar, and focuses on the similarities between Islamic counseling and the PCA in working with depressed clients. This book attempts to open doors for authors and researchers to widen their knowledge with regard to applying a modification of the person centered counseling in different cultures. It also attempts to encourage professionals to apply such a modification to meet client needs, as deemed appropriate. "
