Carl Rogers' interests took on different focuses over the period of his thinking, such that his commentators divided his theory into different phases. More than 20 years after he passed away, what can be seen at the present time is a huge diversity of streams which call themselves Person Centered Approach or which are related to it. With the objective of contributing to a broader, present-day understanding of the approach created by Rogers, this article aims to revisit the so called phases of the Person Centered Approach and proposes a new phase - the Post-Rogerian Phase - which consists of present streams which, emerging from different phases of the Rogerian theory, assume different paths and create new, contemporary theorizations.
