Hi Everyone, Here is your Friday 5! Have a great weekend, and remember to check out past weeks’ resources if you’re new to this 😉 Read Significant Aspects of Client-Centered Therapy by Carl Rogers. I’ve made it a goal this year to revisit works by some of the great psychotherapists. This is a pretty quick read – can probably be completed in 1-3 sittings. Listen Just My Imagination – The Temptations Last night I saw Ain’t Too Proud, a musical about The Temptations that premiered in Berkeley, CA. So many…
