      The lack of international connection, communication and representation for the Person-Centered Approach became apparent at the first World Conference on Psychotherapy in July 1996.

      A letter was drafted by 30 theoreticians and practicioners in Bad Hall, Austria, calling for the formation of an international PCA organization to be founded by open vote at the IVth International Conference on Client-Centered an Experiential Psychotherapy (ICCCEP) in Lisbon, Portugal in July 1997. This letter was distributed throughout the world, inviting input and participation before and during the Portugal Conference.

      Modified into a Provisional Organizational Charter, Provisional Statutes were approved by over 100 people from 21 countries, and the World Association for Person-Centered Counseling and Psychotherapy was officially founded on July 8, 1997. A Working Group and Provisional Board were authorized to solicit membership and develop a constitution to be submitted for resolution at the Vth ICCCEP Conference in Chicago in June 2000

      In Chicago Principles, Statutes and Bylaws were decided by consensus and a new Board was elected.
