LUSSI, Isabela Aparecida de Oliveira; PEREIRA, Maria Alice Ornellas  and  PEREIRA JUNIOR, Alfredo. The proposal of Saraceno's psychosocial rehabilitation: is it a model of self-organization?. Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 2006, vol.14, n.3, pp.448-456. ISSN 1518-8345.

We discuss the theory of Psychosocial Rehabilitation proposed by Benedetto Saraceno, using the theory of Self-Organizing Systems, developed by Michel Debrun and others as a reference framework. We observe that Saraceno's proposal satisfies several aspects of self-organizing processes. However, it is not completely fit. Based on this discussion, the difficulties found in rehabilitation practice in the Mental Health area can be better understood.

Keywords : rehabilitation; systems theory; mental health; delivery of health care.
