Description: "During the psychologically fertile years of the 1940s and 1950s," wrote textbook authors Moursund and Erskine, "new schools of thought were taking hold in the U.S. psychotherapeutic community. Two of these, as radically different from each other as they were from the ideas of the psychoanalysts, were to leave their own indelible marks on the psychotherapeutic landscape. Each has become a part of the thinking-the psychological worldview-of virtually every therapist in practice today. These two schools of thought were behavioristic learning theory on the one hand, and the client-centered therapy of Carl Rogers on the other.
