Stories Of The Great Therapists

An Audio History

In the tradition of National Public Radio’s “Storycorps Recording America,” this project is in the process of collecting oral histories concerning famous theorists of counseling and psychotherapy. Therapists, faculty, and others from around the country are being contacted and asked to submit oral stories concerning significant interactions they have had, or significant events of which they are familiar, concerning famous therapists. These oral histories are being collected and stored on these Web pages for all to hear.

We hope that these stories will help to personalize the individuals who created these well-known theories and offer a glimpse into their lives. Please feel free to listen to the following stories and to use them as learning tools.

If you have a story you would like to upload on this site, or if you have a comment concerning the site, please contact Ed Neukrug at

Hear Dr. Ed Neukrug from Old Dominion University, and Sara McConnell, from Good Reason of Virginia Public Radio, talk about the Stories of the Great Therapist at 15: 20 minutes of the Bible Babel podcast:
