PCA Forum 2021
THE XVITH INTERNATIONAL FORUM OF THE PERSON CENTERED APPROACH
Proposed by the Movimento della Rivoluzione Silenziosa (Movement of the Quiet Revolution), the XVI International Forum of the Person-Centered Approach was held for the first time in Italy, at the Borgo di Tragliata, near Rome.
The PCA Forum is an international meeting which takes place every two years all over the world. People from all five continents gather together in the spirit of the Person Centered Approach. It is also a community of human relationships which offers each participant the time and the space necessary to experience person to person encounter more fully, to create new relationships and to invent new ways of being deeply in contact with oneself. Anchored in PCA values, the PCA Forum is a venue for sharing knowledge and personal experience, enriched by reflexion and the participants’ own personal research.

The PCA Forum is a powerful and vial experience founded on contact, on congruence, on unconditional positive regard and on empathy. It is an incomparable means for approaching, discovering and getting to grips with the Approach founded by Carl Rogers, and also for experiencing it.
Forum 2021 is organized by the Movimento della Rivoluzione Silenziosa which is a fluid reference point that links together many other realities present in Italy.
