rigidity is considered the antithesis of psychological health

“From the person-centered perspective, it is the failure to learn from experience that best characterizes psychopathology. This is why person-centered therapists work so hard to help clients become more open to learning from new experiences. This is also why rigidity is considered the antithesis of psychological health.”             –John Sommers-Flanagan.
