TRZAN-AVILA, Alexandre  e  JACO-VILELA, Ana Maria. A history of the Person Centered Approach in Brazil. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2012, vol.12, n.3, pp. 1063-1069. ISSN 1808-4281.

The objective of this study is to develop a historical account of the emergence of Person-Centered Approach in Brazil (PCA), to answer the following questions: how this approach arrives at Brazil, with whom it comes, how does it develop and which nationwide influences does this approach receive. These issues become relevant due to the fact that the PCA enters Brazil at a time crossed by liberation movements, such as the counterculture, minority movements, anti-psychiatry and the struggles for democracy in Brazil. The PCA, first currents of the Humanist Psychology, owes its systematization to the American psychologist Carl Rogers, who points to a view of man and of human relations, who values the power of human development. This paper uses the historiographical method, which consists in a process of reconstructing the history.
