CONDITIONS OF WORTH

postulated by Carl Rogers, a state wherein a person thinks of love and esteem as being on a trial basis contingent upon satisfying other people and gaining their acceptance.

CONDITIONS OF WORTH: "Conditions of worth are commonly observed in children, but a cause for concern when observed in adults, signaling that they may not have received enough affection or companionship in formative years."
