In this paper I look at the relationship between person-centered therapy and a problem-centered world in which the medical model is applied to mental health. I reject the responses of either opting out of that mainstream or conforming to it. Instead, I take a principled stance that the person-centered paradigm has much to offer and that it therefore behoves us to establish it by a process of 'articulating' with the relevant institutions of society. In this paper I endeavor to retain the personal and provocative nature of the keynote presentation from which it derives.
