“…However, trying to achieve this can be problematic. Hopton (1997) noted that many mental health nurses claim to utilize humanistic psychology, basing their practice on Carl Rogers' person‐centred therapy.

“…Showing someone respect while placing them in the seclusion room proves to be a difficult task (Lamothe, 1988).
