SCHUTZ, Daiana Meregalli  and  ITAQUI, Luciara Gervasio. Silence in psychotherapy in the light of the person centered approach. Rev. NUFEN [online]. 2016, vol.8, n.1, pp. 76-90. ISSN 2175-2591.

The Person Centered Approach (PCA) refers to a specific form, developed by Carl Rogers, to enter into relationship with another being implied a positive way of conceptualizing the human person. In this approach, the individual has within himself vast resources for selfunderstanding and to change your self-concept, their basic attitudes and their self-directed behavior, and these resources can be released if a defined climate of facilitative psychological attitudes can be offered. Communication in psychotherapy in the ACP is not just about the cognitive and intellectual nature of content, but refers to something more 'experiential', which covers the whole person, both visceral reactions and feelings and thoughts and words. Silence is configured as a form of communication and not as lack of it, is fundamental to the psychotherapeutic process.
