MOREIRA, Virginia; LANDIM, Liane Bastos  e  ROMCY, Geórgia Silva. John Keith Wood and the person-centered approach in Brazil. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.1, pp. 63-70. ISSN 1809-6867.

This article aims to expose the contributions of John Keith Wood to Person-Centered Approach (PCA) in Brazil, having as start point his work with the PCA developed by Carl Ransom Rogers. We worked based on John Wood's scientific publications and interviews conducted with Lucila Assumpção, John's widower, and Vera Cury, his student and great friend. We came to the conclusion that John Wood's life and work are fully weaved, and that it is not possible to understand one without referring to the other. His main contributions refer to his work with groups, whose functioning has, as its background, the development of a holistic, impartial, ambiguous, and humanistic perspective. John Keith Wood can be considered a demystifier of the approach and one of the successors of Rogers that most developed possibilities for the implementations of the PCA.
