ARAUJO, Iago Cavalcante  e  FREIRE, José Célio. Values and their importance for clinical theory of the person-centered approach. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.1, pp. 86-93. ISSN 1809-6867.

The Person-Centered Approach (PCA), as well as any human activity, is based on certain values, and among them, is a person's worth. On the one hand, the approach consists of a professional practice in which the psychologist, bearing their own values, feelings, and perceptions, acts with integrity towards the client. On the other hand, we understand that such personal values should not be passed on to the client, or else we would be risking their autonomy and contradicting the organismic valuing process, as proposed by Carl Rogers. This essay discusses the place of clinical psychologists' personal values in the PCA clinical theory. We understand that Rogerian psychotherapy is a process in which values are learned, which does not necessarily mean psychologists will teach such values. Among other aspects, we understand that professionals who use Person-Centered Approach need to further acquire its values, as well promote environments and productions that address the ethical aspects of its practice.
