TEODORO, Elizabeth Fátima  and  JUNIOR, Reinaldo da Silva. The transformative power of Encounters: an analysis of the animation Destino. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2021, vol.27, n.2, pp. 202-212. ISSN 1809-6867.

This text arose from the following questions: what are the precipitations resulting from a real encounter? Is it possible to truly relate to another person and remain the same? What does it take, according to Rogers, to be whole in a loving relationship? We aim to analyze the way in which the person changes when choosing someone as a partner. Therefore, the method was based on theoretical research with a focus on Carl Rogers for the humanistic conceptual study and on film analysis in order to carry out a psychological reading about the animation Destino by Salvador Dalí and Walter Disney. From the above, we dismantle the notion that the love relationship is an immutable destiny, by realizing, through the humanistic approach, that the love relationship not only involves the awareness of being a person, but mainly, the true openness to the experience of being with someone else, in an I-You relationship of authenticity and empathy. In this way, the Meetings allow the construction of their own destiny that is revealed as something flexible and changeable.
