Description of Person-Centered Theory The Humanistic and Existential Theory I selected Person-Centered theory. The Person-centered approach was established in the 1940s by Carl R. Rogers.

In other words, it respect the individuality, subjective experience and uniqueness of an individual and trust the ability of an individual to make a positive and constructive choice. Person-centered therapy purposed 3 key concepts: congruence, unconditional positive regard and accurate empathic understanding.
