This chapter provides an overview of therapist personal growth work that is vital to living these values and becoming competent as an experiential-humanistic therapist. It argues that personal therapy is valuable only insofar as it facilitates personal growth in the context of a therapy that emphasizes awareness of immediate experience and supports personal agency—all of which takes place within an egalitarian, authentic therapeutic relationship that pursues wholeness through integration of multiple, often conflicting, aspects of self.
