BAPCA is becoming The Person Centred Association (TPCA). For more information, see here.

Introduction

The Person-Centred Approach was developed by Carl Rogers (1902-1987).

At the heart of this approach is the basic trust in human beings and in the movement of every organism toward constructive fulfilment of its, his, or her possibilities (from Carl R. Rogers. Way of Being. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1980, p.117).

Rogers stated that 'Individuals have within themselves vast resources for self-understanding and for altering their self-concepts, basic attitudes, and self-directed behaviour; these resources can be tapped if a definable climate of facilitative psychological attitudes can be provided.' (from Carl R. Rogers. Way of Being. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1980, p.115-117).

He pointed to three core conditions as providing a growth-promoting climate. These core conditions are: congruence, unconditional positive regard and empathy (see 'What is the Person-Centred Approach'). Rogers believed that when these core conditions are provided, movement in a constructive direction will occur in the person receiving these conditions.

It is this trust in the individual, and some people believe, in the communities that individuals create, that makes BAPCA a very special organisation. BAPCA actively supports self-directed movement and development as it emerges from within the membership.

We aim to provide an atmosphere where, through their involvement with BAPCA, members will feel free to self-organise and to develop themselves. Members play a vital role too in helping BAPCA in its development as an organisation.

Open to anyone with an interest in the approach, BAPCA welcomes students, therapists, tutors, nurses or workers in all fields of social relations such as caring professions, as well as people involved in business, education, arts and media.
