TAVARES, Claudia Mara de Melo. The role of art in centers of psycho-social care - CAPS. Rev. bras. enferm. [online]. 2003, vol.56, n.1, pp.35-39. ISSN 0034-7167.

Study about the employment of the artistic approach in the cares developed at the CAPS. Founded on conceptual bases of Psychiatric Reform, the object of study has been broached by means of an exploratory field research through interview with CAPS's professionals. The results found indicate that activities with artistic basis are used by them aiming at a positive interaction with service users, and in the perspective of their psychosocial rehabilitation. We concluded that the work at the CAPS itself brings up-to-date creative potentialities of both professionals and users, being art assumed as an strategy of care.

Keywords : art therapy; psychiatric nursing; delivery of healthcare; rehabilitation centers; rehabilitation.
