BRITO, Rosa Angela Cortez de  e  PAIVA, Vilma Maria Barreto. Rogers' psychotherapy and Axline's play therapy: convergences and divergences. Rev. NUFEN [online]. 2012, vol.4, n.1, pp. 102-114. ISSN 2175-2591.

Axline referred that her theoretical-practical base in play therapy is the rogerian's non-directive psychotherapy. In order to understand the author's statement on her theoretical referential, this paper proposes as study the analysis of the relationships between Rogers's non-directive psychotherapy and Axline's non-directive play therapy. The methodology used for the accomplishment of this work was the bibliographical research of Rogers's, Axline`s and reviewers' papers. As obtained result, it was verified that the Axline's non-directive play therapy is between two moments of Rogers' theoretical evolution: the non-directing phase and the reflexive phase. Therefore, Axline's theory should no longer be considered similar to the non-directing psychotherapy, but as a transition for the client centered therapy.
