Counseling Question - January 30th 2011, 12:49 PM

My therapist(just a counselor really) goes by Carl Rojors. What I'm asking is what unconditional positive regard really is. Does this mean she genuinely wont and has to make effort not to judge me or has to hide her judgment?


PM me! I'm nice. Really! Don't believe what those faries say!!

Unconditional positive regard doesn't mean that your counselor will have the same views as you, or that she'll even pretend to have the same views as you. She will probably tell you when her ideas differ from yours, but at the same time she'll recognize that you are completely entitled to your ideas.

Unconditional positive regard means that she will have basic respect for people as human beings no matter what they've done and will not judge based on what she's told.
