The Focusing Institute: Focusing is direct access to a bodily knowing. Focusing is a practice developed from the Philosophy of the Implicit.
Dr. Carl Rogers was Gene Gendlin's colleague and friend at the University of Chicago. Rogers' person-centered approach opened the way for Gene's elaboration of Focusing. This is a delightful talk that Rogers gave in 1974. He mentions Eugene (Gene) T. Gendlin 's work which Gene would four years later write about in his book "Focusing."

We are inviting manuscript submissions for a special issue of Person-Centered and Experiential Psychotherapies (PCEP) on Incongruence.
Incongruence refers to a mismatch/distortion between organismic experience and awareness. It has been usually seen as a negative state or attitude, which creates misunderstanding and hinders therapeutic change. Incongruence carries negative connotations: a sign of vulnerability, maladjustment, defensiveness, lack of awareness, unintentional withholding of inner experience, falseness or even deceit and distortion of the true response. Therapist incongruence has been considered a factor that can negatively impact therapeutic outcome.
