Abstract: Long recognized as a major spokesperson for Client-Centered Therapy, C. H. Patterson is currently a Distinguished Visiting Professor at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and Emeritus Professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. It does not take much research to discover why Dr. Patterson is considered a major contributor to counseling and psychology. A biographical sketch of this man's greatest accomplishments would include such highlights as the two Fulbrights he was awarded, his term as President of the APA Division of Counseling Psychology (1971-72), his term as President (he was also one of the founders) of the American Rehabilitation Counseling Association (1961-62), and his contributions to the literature (over 165 articles and 13 books and chapters).
