In 1940, on the strength of his book Clinical Treatment of the Problem Child, he was offered a professorship at Ohio State University.

With the help of some caring others, I have decided effectively to invest my time in exploring my inner child.And Rogers went even a step further: the idea that the therapist should stay calm no matter what was a foreign one to him, because honesty is possible only in good relationships and good relationships are always about two honest people – and not about a person spilling his guts out and a doll bereaved of feelings nodding opposite him. With doctoral work in child psychology, Rogers obtained a post as a psychologist at the Society of Prevention to Children in Rochester, New York, working with troubled or delinquent children. Rogers gives the example of a teacher who is introverted but decides to become extroverted in her instructions.

Thus to an increasing degree, he becomes himself – not a façade of conformity to others, not a cynical denial of all feeling, nor a front of intellectual rationality, but a living, breathing, feeling, fluctuating process – in short, he becomes a person. Rogers quotes two authors – Abraham Maslow and Ashley Montagu – as the “solitary voices” of protest against the widely accepted notion that “man is irrational, unsocialized, destructive of others and self. Time will tell, but for now Rogers has provided an excellent platform for imaginative exploration of the challenges I will soon face as I strive to become capable of providing clients with therapeutic care.

As this was a time when the study of psychology revolved around the behavior of rats in laboratories, his belief in letting the 'crazy' patient set the direction of things was a big challenge to the profession, and many denounced his ideas.

Consequently, it’s the job of a psychotherapist to listen to his/her patient, rather than trying to fix him/her.

In my personal experience, people who strike a strategic balance between rigidity and fluidity seem to live the healthiest and most meaningful lives. So as to help a patient (or a lover or a child or a friend), it is the job of a psychotherapist (or a partner or a parent or a colleague) to create a safe environment.Because it’s easier for us to find excuses than to find ways; even though the former brings frustration, it is much more comfortable than the latter which always comes with a bit of fear. With that being said, it should be noted that Rogers didn’t expect such a thing; in fact, On Becoming a Person is not even a monograph, but a collection of articles penned by Rogers during a whole decade. And the job of a psychotherapist should be that: to listen attentively and pass no judgment over his patients, thus creating a safe environment wherein one can really get in touch with his true self. If you catch yourself in this mode, it may be a good idea to turn back into your body and try to feel and listen to what your whole experience is telling you. Thus to an increasing degree he becomes himself - not a facade of conformity to others, not a cynical denial of all feeling, nor a front of intellectual rationality, but a living, breathing, feeling, fluctuating process - in short, he becomes a person.
