An Encounter Group is a space where you can try to communicate who you really are, try to understand who the others are.
No role playing, no social obligation, no artificial behaviour or small talk:
Having revolutionized individual psychotherapy by his practice, research and publishing, Carl Rogers devoted last 30 years of his life to Encounter groups. He, together with his co-workers facilitated groups with up to a few hundred participants in many different countries. Some of them took place on ground of political, ethnical or religious conflict (Civil War Northern Ireland, South Africa, Cold War USA). This gave him a nomination for a Nobel Peace Price in 1987.
Each of them brought the participants one or few steps closer to the truth which Rogers formulated briefly and insightfully as: “What is the most personal is the most universal”.
Encounter group is a way of finding oneself within and through the relation with others. It’s listening to one’s thoughts, emotions and feelings as deeply as one can listen to the other’s while respecting both. It is learning from this different way of communication, testing how much contact can be established.
- has a potential of bringing understanding of some of one’s problems, reactions, behaviors and to change them
- answers the need of being listened to, understood, of belonging, having support and being part of the community without any label on it
- facilitates the process of discovering the mysteries in us and in the world around us
- can resolve personal or public conflict by confrontation and real meeting of the sides of it
