The aim of the Network is to provide a European-wide forum for those professionals in science and practice who

  • hold as central to the therapeutic endeavor the client's actualising process and phenomenological world 
  • embody in their work those conditions and attitudes conducive to therapeutic movement first postulated by Carl Rogers
  • have a commitment to an understanding of both clients and therapists as persons, who are at the same time individuals and in relationship with others and their diverse environments and cultures
  • have an openness to the development  and elaboration of person-centred and experiential theory in light of current and future practice and research. (Updated May 2011)
