Question:

Explain the role of the counselor and client in the therapeutic relationship from the perspective of Carl Rogers' person-centered therapy.

Answer:

More than with providing the client with palpable, effective skills to view their life as able to be changed and their identity as defused from their cognitions and emotions, Carl Rogers believed that the therapeutic relationship itself can be an important catalyst for change. In Rogers' perspective, the therapist’s ability to develop and maintain a genuine, vulnerable, and authentic relationship is paramount to the therapeutic process. Within person-centered theoretical literature, the therapeutic relationship has been defined with two components: the working alliance and the real relationship. The working alliance is the collaborative element of the relationship between client and therapist that allows psychotherapeutic treatment to advance in the most effective and genuine way. In conjunction with the working alliance, the real relationship is the degree to which the personal relationship that exists between the counselor and the client is genuine and authentic human interaction. In person-centered therapy, the real relationship and therapeutic change has little to do with actual techniques and theoretical orientations of the therapist, and more to do with the therapist’s ability to establish a genuine human connection with the client. This collaborative focus on connectedness and authenticity provides the therapeutic base for working towards the client’s goals together with the use of skills.

Question:

Feminist theorist, Simone de Beauvoir, wrote that “humanity is male” and women are the silent “Other.” Please explain this term and its connection to today's society.

Answer:

Throughout her work, de Beauvoir argues that women are always viewed in relation to men and consistently “Othered” in society is problematic and must be contended with. The results of this problematic assumption affect today's world in ways that we take for granted and ignore on a regular basis. Today's society can also be viewed through the lens of her overarching belief that sex is not the problem with society; gender is. Sex is defined as the “female body,” and gender is defined as the human-created phenomenon that is causing damage to women’s lives. Therefore, the entirety of society has been constructed based on the assumption that men are the “normal” and “natural,” and women are the “Other.” Even within language, the concept of masculine and feminine is woven into words we use and the way we conceptualize the world. There is an automatic assumption that white men are perceived as the norm, and that therefore the perspective of the white man is not even articulated as an “identity” in the way that Othered identities are, such as LGBTQ individuals, women, and racial minorities. However, de Beauvoir would argue that the white male identity is just as much of an identity as a black female and that the assumption that the white male is not an identity is a direct consequence of the gap in society’s understanding of gender. In response to this problematic reality still present in today's society, de Beauvoir would still call for women to become part of the story and let their voices be heard.
