The biography should also chart key moments in the person’s life and/or career, which are relevant to the development of their theories, including key thinkers who have influenced and guided the development of his/her theories. 3. The biography should also include a brief outline of the key concepts that your chosen pioneer has developed and should explain how these are still relevant and influential today. For example, with Rogers, you could highlight the importance of the core conditions, both in his theory and in contemporary psychotherapy. Klein’s work on projection and introjection, or Perls’ empty chair, and so on. Of course you should elaborate much more fully on the pioneer’s work than the examples given here. 4.
