The aim of this paper is to present, to discuss and to validate a modality of clinical practice that is being devoloped for some years in Ser e Fazer: Laboratório de Saúde Mental e Psicologia Clínica Social do Instituto de Psicologia da Universidade de São Paulo (Being and Doing: Laboratory of Mental Health and Clinical Social Psychology of the Institute of Psychology of the University of São Paulo). It deals about a form of psychoanalytic practice that arises from the assumption according to which there are no limits to the comprehension of human behaviour. This practice does not operate based on interpretations but by holding of the therapeutic encounter. Its clinical matrix are forms of human suffering produced by the contemporary way of life and known as depersonalization and derealization.
