_ The great question! There is no particular set of techniques that a person centred practitioner should employ. Carl Rogers theorised that if 6 core conditions were present in a therapy session then 'therapeutic change' would occur. He had researched that these conditions were present and high in sessions that people felt therapeutic change occurred. Thus the conditions are necessary & sufficient.
There is sometimes a misconception that there are 3 core conditions (empathy, unconditional positive regard & congruence). I think this has occurred through these being more the therapist qualities..
Anyway, here are the SIX Core Conditions :
Anger management is an a form of counselling focusing on anger and 'how to' deal with it using a series of techniques. Person centred counselling can also be a way to help you with anger. Anger can be destructive (I'm sure you can imagine lots of examples) as well as constructive. Just think about groups that have been oppressed. These groups are often angry and it's this anger that gives them the motivation to help change their situation and revolt.
Anger can be a very difficult emotion to harness. If you are angry and often act out this emotion through unproductive behaviours counselling can help.
Person centred counselling can offer you a safe place to explore what it is that might be adding to your anger. It can be a place where you can come to learn and understand yourself better, without being told to 'stop and count to 10!'
All individuals (organisms) exist in a continually changing world of experience (phenomenal field) of which they are the center.
